The Ravens announced their first round of roster cuts Monday as they waived three players, all of whom were undrafted free agents, and placed wideout DeAndrew White on Injured Reserve.


The team’s first cuts were defensive end John Daka, offensive lineman Sean Pollard and wide receiver Michael Dereus. 

Daka, a James Madison graduate, had a prolific FCS career but was buried on the depth chart behind a few roster locks. Pollard and Dereus were in similar situations; Pollard went to Clemson and Dereus went to Georgetown. 

Reportedly, there was some drama Monday as the Ravens informed tight end Charles Scarff he was to be released. Then, undrafted free agent Eli Wolf, in competition with Scarff for the team’s third tight end spot, reportedly tweaked a leg muscle in the morning’s practice allowing the team to hang onto Scarff for now, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.



Baltimore’s roster is now at 76 players. The team has to be down to its 53-man roster by Saturday at 4pm.
