The Baltimore Ravens finalized their inaugural roster on Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST, with 53 players. They parted ways with a number of outstanding players, but after amassing such a large quantity of quality depth, they were faced with some difficult choices.
With the waiver period closing at 12 p.m. EST on Wednesday, the New York Jets linebacker, Del’Shawn Phillips was claimed by Baltimore.
