Ravens cut Gorrer

Defensive backDanny Gorrer learned a hard truth on Monday: Just because he made the Ravens'53-man roster on Friday didn't necessarily mean he would be suiting up for theRavens in Week 1.The Ravens signedformer Patriots safety James Ihedigbo on Sunday and needed to make amove to make room for Ihedigbo on the 53-man roster. Turnsout, Ihedigbo took the spot of Gorrer, who was released by the Ravens onMonday. That's happeningacross the league as teams comb the waiver wire to sift through each team'sfinal cuts. When a player is signed, someone else has to go; Graham Gano thought he had won the Redskins kicking job, but when Billy Cundiff was let go by the Ravens, the Redskins signed him and booted Gano."You know in this league it is very fluid nothing is certain," Ravens coach John Harbaugh had said on Friday. "Once you get past the first eek, you go to the second week, and you see where were at.Gorrer played in11 games for the Ravens last season, primarily on special teams, and had beenviewed as being on the roster bubble when the 53-man roster was set. Gorrerbroke into the NFL with the Rams, playing three games for them in 2009, andthen spent the 2010 season on the Ravens practice squad. He started last seasonon the Ravens practice squad again before being moved to the active roster."Woke up witthe biggest smile on my face... Im still a Raven Blessed," Gorrer hadtweeted Saturday morning.But a little morethan 48 hours, that had changed completely."Damn it'sfunny how things in this business works out," he tweeted Monday, "butman like I said God has a plan for us all."Safety BernardPollard said, "Its tough. Danny is my boy, but this is the business sideof it. Anytime you think things are going well, things can change. We cantcontrol it. One thing Ive always been told from when I got in thisleague is you can control the controllables, and thats one thing thats outof our hands.In other Ravensroster news:--- Several mediareports have indicated that the Ravens will complete their eight-man practicesquad by adding quarterback Dennis Dixon, linebacker Adrian Hamilton and safetyAnthony Levine.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
