Baltimore became the third team to get down to their 53-man roster on Saturday, with a huge group of cuts that including linebacker Tavares Gooden.

Gooden started 10 games in 2009, but slowly fell out of favor.  Here’s the full list of cuts:

Center Tim Barnes, running back Damien Berry, guard Justin Boren, linebacker Prescott Burgess, linebacker Josh Bynes, quarterback Hunter Cantwell, defensive back Danny Gorrer, defensive tackle Lamar Divens, tight end Davon Drew, wide receiver James Hardy, defensive tackle Bryan Hall, cornerback Talmadge Jackson, fullback Ryan Mahaffey, tight end Johdrick Morris, wide receiver Brandon Jones, center Jason Murphy, running back Jalen Parmele, guard Andre Ramsey, long snapper Patrick Scales, defensive tackle Marcus Simmons, wideout Marcus Smith, linebacker Chavis Williams, safety Nate Williams, and cornerback Josh Victorian.

Burgess was a solid special teamer last year. Hardy was a second round pick with the Bills; Marcus Smith was a fourth-rounder by the Ravens in 2008.

Baltimore also placed second-year tackle Ramon Harewood on injured reserve. He hasn’t taken a snap in the regular season in two years because of injuries.
