Raven’s Set 2022 Training Squad

Raven’s Set 2022 Training Squad

The Ravens have lined up their first training roster for the 2022 season.

None of the Ravens released Tuesday were called back from waivers, meaning those who were waived injured (OLB Daelin Hayes, DT Aaron Crawford, WR Shemar Bridges) returned to injured reserve and later this season could be activated.

The rest of the players the Ravens cut were available to re-enlist on the practice team, and many were brought back.

Of course there will be changes throughout the year, but here’s who made the original list:

The sixth-round rookie showed good feet and reception skills in training camp but had a quiet preseason with 65 yards on 23 carries. The Missouri standout can continue to develop his all-around game.

Brown shone in the preseason finals against Washington, completing 15 of 19 passes for 256 yards and a touchdown. He threw two nice deep balls to Demarcus Robinson, including one for a touchdown. Throughout preseason, the undrafted Oregon rookie was 35 of 47 for 464 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He said he aspires to rise in the NFL much like Tyler Huntley did in Baltimore.

NT Isaiah Mack (Exception)

Mack was a candidate to be claimed for a waiver elsewhere, but the burly run stopper, who showed flashes of his pass-rush ability, was erased and will remain in Baltimore. “He’s disruptive, and I think that’s one of the greatest compliments you can give a football player,” assistant head coach/defender Anthony Weaver said.

Mason serves as a backup for Pro Bowler Pat Ricard’s practice squad. In the final offseason, Mason signed with the New England Patriots practice team instead of staying in Baltimore, but saw no action and returned at the end of the year.

McKenzie serves as additional inside offensive line depth.

LB Steven Means (veteran)

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Means called up to the gameday list in the first few weeks considering the Ravens currently only have two healthy fullbacks on the 53-man roster. Means played well in training camp and preseason.

Moon has blitzed in training and games. He had three tackles and a half sack in the preseason finals. The 6-foot-5, 249-pound Florida product can continue to learn behind Justin Houston, Odafe Oweh and others. Considering the outside linebacker’s lack of depth, he might get a call.

The Ravens have a lot of depth on the defensive line and Nichols popped too. The SF Austin product has good speed right off the bat.

Polk had a great college production in the SEC (Mississippi State) and some standout moments in training at boot camp. He led the Ravens in receptions in the preseason opener, catching six passes for 43 yards but only two other catches for 29 yards in the other two games.

CB Kevon Seymour (Veteran)

The veteran cornerback is a trusted reserve and strong special teams player. Seymour suffered a sprained ankle in the preseason final and head coach John Harbaugh said he could come back in a couple of weeks. The Ravens are healthy at cornerback for now, so Seymour has time to recover.

OT David Sharpe (Veteran)

The Ravens re-signed Sharpe on July 22 and he remains with the team as an insurance veteran at tackle. He played in three games last season and bounced back and forth between the practice team and the matchday squad. He was a fourth-round pick for the Raiders in 2017 and also played for the Texans and Commanders.

Victor spent the whole of last season on the training team and is back in his second year there. He made strides this summer but was still part of a crowded competitive field. Victor made one of the most spectacular plays of the preseason with a 50-yard leaping grab over his head.

Washington fielded the first 53-man roster last year and played in three games, but he suffered a broken foot. He missed much of summer rehab but made a good impression upon his return. Washington had six tackles in the preseason finals and defended well the final pass that sealed the Ravens’ 23rd straight preseason win.

Webb showed up preseason and hit a 38-yard touchdown in Arizona in the second game. He, Polk and Shemar Bridges all fought for a roster spot and can now continue their rise.

CB Daryl Worley (Veteran)

The Ravens brought Worley back on August 8 after linebacker Vince Biegel’s injury at the end of the season. Worley then grabbed an interception in the first preseason game just three days later and played well for much of the preseason. Worley only played four games last season and this will be his seventh year in the league.

The only Ravens released as part of the final cutdown that were not retained were defensive end Brent Urban, safety Tony Jefferson, undrafted rookie cornerback David Vereen, undrafted rookie inside linebacker Zakoby McClain, undrafted rookie outside linebacker Chuck Wiley, and End running back Nate McCrary, tight Tony Poljan and guard/center Jimmy Murray.
