Ravens Swap Return Men

The Ravens have swapped return men. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley reports (via Twitter) that the team has promoted returner/wideout Tim White from the practice squad and waived returner/wideout Janarion Grant. The team has also waived offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor and promoted defensive back Robertson Daniel.

Grant, an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers, made the Ravens’ initial roster as their primary kick and punt returner. However, the 24-year-old has struggled through his first two regular season games, losing a pair of fumbles. There should be some room for optimism, as his kick return average (28 yards) and punt return average (7.4 yards) are plenty impressive.

Now, White will have his chance at being the team’s primary return man. The 24-year-old joined the organization last year as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State, and he spent the majority of his rookie season on the injured reserve. He was cut by the Ravens at the end of this year’s training camp, but he quickly caught on with the team’s practice squad.

With Anthony Averett struggling through a hamstring injury, Daniel should provide the team with some additional depth. The former undrafted free agent out of Bringham Young has bounced around the NFL, but he’s spent the past two-plus seasons with the Ravens. The 26-year-old only has a single career game under his belt, and he’ll likely slide in to the bottom of the team’s cornerback depth chart.

Eluemunor was a fifth-round pick by the Ravens in 2017, and he appeared in eight games (two starts) as a rookie, earning him an All-Rookie nod. However, the 23-year-old was buried on the depth chart heading into the 2018 campaign, and he didn’t see the field during Baltimore’s first two regular season contests. With the move, the Ravens are now only rostering seven offensive lineman: Ronnie Stanley, Alex Lewis, Matt Skura, Marshal Yanda, James Hurst, Orlando Brown, and Bradley Bozeman.

Minor NFL Transactions: 7/20/17

The latest minor transactions from around the NFL:

  • The Ravens made a few moves on Thursday, per the Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec, who reports that the club waived/injured defensive back Daniel Henry, placed offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor on the non-football injury list, and put wide receiver Aaron Bailey and defensive end Patrick Ricard on the physically unable to perform list (Twitter links). With the exception of the English-born Eluemunor, a fifth-round pick, all of those players joined the Ravens this year as undrafted free agents.
  • The Patriots cut offensive lineman Chase Farris, opening up a spot on their 90-man roster, tweets Doug Kyed of NESN. Farris went undrafted out of Ohio State last year and then signed with the Lions, who cut him prior to Week 1. He has been in and out of the New England organization on multiple occasions since then.
  • The Saints placed Travin Dural and Devaroe Lawrence on the non-football injury list. Dural’s condition is “nothing serious,” Nick Underhill of The Advocate (on Twitter) hears.
  • The Jaguars sent fullback Marquez Williams to the PUP list, according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union (Twitter link). Williams, out of Miami (Ohio), went to Jacksonville in the seventh round of this year’s draft.

Ravens Sign Rookie CB Marlon Humphrey

The Ravens announced that they have signed first-round cornerback Marlon Humphrey. In addition to the Alabama product, linebacker Tyus Bowser (second round), guard Nico Siragusa (fourth round), offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor (fifth round), and safety Chuck Carr (sixth round) have also inked their deals. Marlon Humphrey (vertical)

Humphrey was widely ranked as one of the top three cornerbacks available in what was a very deep class for the position. Depending on who you asked, some talent evaluators had him as the second-best corner on the board, behind Marshon Lattimore but ahead of Gareon Conley and Adoree’ Jackson. Humphrey wound up becoming the second cornerback drafted when the Ravens selected him at No. 16, though Conley’s draft week incident might have had something to do with that.

Humphrey, a 6’1″, 196-pound athlete, had 36 total tackles, two interceptions, and five passes defensed in his final year at Alabama. One of those interceptions was a pick six in the season opener against USC.

With those five under contract, only two Ravens draft picks remain unsigned. Baltimore will look to finalize things with third-round defensive end Chris Wormley and third-round linebacker Tim Williams in the coming days.
