Ravens begin putting together practice squad


Less than 24 hours after making final cuts to reduce their roster to the 53-man limit, the Ravens welcomed back several players to their practice squad.
On Sunday afternoon, Baltimore announced the signings of linebacker Brennen Beyer, wide receiver Jeremy Butler, guard Kaleb Johnson, safety Nick Perry, quarterback Bryn Renner, tight end Konrad Reuland, and offensive lineman De’Ondre Wesley to officially fill seven of their 10 spots on their practice squad.
However, the Ravens appear to be on the verge of filling the remaining spots.
Waived on Friday, rookie wide receiver Daniel Brown indicated on Twitter that he was joining the Ravens’ practice squad after spending the spring and preseason with them. A punt block and a touchdown reception in the preseason finale in Atlanta helped his cause a great deal.
According to multiple reports, the Ravens are also adding former Houston Texans cornerback Charles James to their practice squad. A charismatic figure in HBO’s “Hard Knocks” series this summer, James has also played some running back and has ability as a returner, which could lead to him getting a long look in practices. The third-year defensive back and Charleston Southern product also posted via Twitter that he was joining the Ravens, but nothing had been made official as of Sunday afternoon.
The Ravens saw two of their former players claimed by other teams on waivers Sunday as cornerback Asa Jackson was awarded to the New York Giants and rookie guard Robert Myers was assigned to the Indianapolis Colts. Baltimore was not awarded any players off waivers on Sunday.
