Ravens cut Asa Jackson as part of moves to roster limit
The Ravens cut 15 players Saturday, getting them to the roster limit.
The biggest names among them were cornerback Asa Jackson and offensive lineman Jah Reid, both former starters.
Jackson got chances as a returner this preseason but fumbled twice in the last two preseason games, which didn’t help his chances. They had hung onto him for three seasons, a time marked mostly by injuries and a pair of PED suspensions.
They also released wide receiver Jeremy Butler, guard Robert Myers, cornerback Cassius Vaughn, linebacker Brennen Beyer, guard Kaleb Johnson, running back Terrence Magee, running back Fitzgerald Toussaint, fullback Kiero Small, tight end Konrad Reuland, quarterback Bryn Renner and safety Nick Perry.
They also waived-injured defensive end DeAngelo Tyson and defensive tackle Micajah Reynolds (waived-injured). Undrafted rookie linebacker Zach Thompson was placed on injured reserve.
