OWINGS MILLS,Md.--The Baltimore Ravens made 12 cuts this past Sunday. The team cut a dozen players to get down to 77 in advance of Tuesday's NFL deadline to reduce the roster to 75 players.
The Ravens' cut included veteran tight end Visanthe Shiancoe and offensive lineman Ramn Harewod.
Shiancoe, the former Minnesota Vikings was cut Sunday. Shiancoe was signed after Dennis Pitta suffered a probable season-ending hip injury, and had more playing time than any Ravens tight end through the three preseason games. The Ravens also cut Tommy Streeter. His time in Baltimore lasted more than a year being a sixth-round pick in 2012. The 6-foot-5 inch receiver had high expectations with the Ravens, but never materialized on the field.
The Ravens also cut wide receivers, Rashad Carter and Gerrard Sheppard, running back Damien Berry, offensive lineman Jack Cornell, Ramn Harewod and David Mims, linebackers Bryan Hall and Meshak Williams, defensive back Moe Lee and defensive end Will Pericak.
The Ravens did make additions with signing Dayne Crist and second-year line backer Adrian Hamilton on the injured reserve with a wrist injury.
Crist will be signed in order to backup Tyrod Taylor after his concussion tests after last Thursday's game.
