So, what now?

The Ravens have made their final round of cuts and have settled on this 53-man roster.

But that doesn’t mean they’re done making moves just yet.

Over the next couple days, the Ravens will sift through the players that have been let go by the other 31 teams, and they could continue to tweak their roster.

In other words, the 53 players who remain with the Ravens might have made the team for now, but they aren’t out of the woods just yet.

Two positions in particular that I would keep an eye on are offensive tackle and cornerback.

The Ravens have just eight offensive linemen on their current 53-man roster, and with tackle Jared Gaither still sidelined with a back injury and Oniel Cousins coming off a concussion, I think GM Ozzie Newsome might be looking to bolster that position.

Undrafted rookie cornerback Prince Miller made the team as the fifth cornerback, but I don’t think Miller’s spot on the roster is secure just yet. The Ravens might look to bring in a more experienced corner to fill that role until Cary Williams returns from his two-game suspension.

Once the players that have been released have cleared waivers, teams can start establishing their practice squads.

Anytime after noon tomorrow, teams can sign eight players to that developmental roster. Those players can practice with the team but are not a part of the active roster, meaning they cannot play in games.

Players who do not have an accrued season of free-agency credit or who were on the 45-player active list for fewer than nine games in their only accrued season(s) are eligible for the practice squad. A player cannot participate on the practice squad for more than three seasons.
