Ravens sign Vladimir Ducasse, place Sheldon Price on IR

The Ravens ended last Sunday’s loss to the Raiders without either of their starting offensive tackles and they made a move on Tuesday to insure they’ll have enough healthy bodies on the offensive line for this week’s visit to the Giants.

The team announced that they have signed guard Vladimir Ducasse to the 53-man roster. Ducasse spent the offseason and preseason with the team, but was released when the team made their cuts in early September.

Ducasse made 11 starts for the Bears last season and has also spent time with the Vikings and Jets since entering the league as a Jets second-round pick in 2010. The Ravens moved left guard Alex Lewis to left tackle in place of Ronnie Stanley against Washington and then shifted right guard Marshal Yanda to right tackle when Rick Wagner hurt his thigh, leaving the team short on depth on the interior if John Urschel and Ryan Jensen are pushed into the lineup again.

Cornerback Sheldon Price was placed on injured reserve to open a roster spot. Price suffered a biceps injury during a game he started in place of Shareece Wright.

    Praying for a quick return from Stanley. I just fear it is worse than the team is letting on.

    Amazed this guy keeps finding work. He’s been a bum from the get-go. Better hope he doesn’t play

    “Ducasse” must be the French phrase for “swinging door”.

    Vladimir Ducasse sounds like a foreign car maker.

    Vlad is Bad.

    Somewhere there’s a 22-yr old kid from a D3 school who could outplay this guy but isn’t getting a chance cause desperate teams keep signing him to their rosters.

    I believe a ducasse is one of those brandy dishes where the waiter sets it on fire and then charges you $100. Seems fitting.

    Vladimir Ducasse sounds like a European designer of high en women’s clothing.

    “Vlad the impaler” was in Minnesota a couple of years ago. You could say the stadium held the world’s largest swing in doors, when he was there.

    More like “Vlad the emploded”..

    ^^^THIS
    A player who *might* end up being pretty good is better than a guy you *KNOW* is a bum, right? NFL doesn’t see it that way though
