The Ravens finished setting their 10-man practice squad Monday by signing former New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Marcel Jones.
A seventh-round pick in the 2012 draft, Jones has yet to play in an NFL game after spending his rookie season on injured reserve and the 2013 campaign as a member of the Saints’ practice squad. The 6-foot-7, 320-pound lineman was cut over the weekend after playing 25 snaps against the Ravens in the preseason finale last Thursday.
The Nebraska product has the ability to play tackle or guard and gives Baltimore more depth in the event of injuries to their current 53-man roster that includes nine offensive linemen.
The Ravens signed nine players to their practice squad on Sunday as offensive lineman Ryan Jensen, cornerbacks Tramain Jacobs and Deji Olatoye, defensive tackles A.J. Pataiali’i and Jamie Meder, linebacker John Simon, tight end Phillip Supernaw, running back Fitzgerald Toussaint, and quarterback Keith Wenning rejoined the organization after being waived at the end of the preseason.
