Plenty of Ravens fans hope that the decision to cut veterans Willis McGahee, tight end Todd Heap, and receiver Derrick Mason means that the Ravens will make a play for a guy like cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Their first transaction will be far less sexy.

Per a league source, the Ravens will sign University of Miami running back Damien Berry on Tuesday morning.

Berry rushed for 899 yards in 2010 and 616 in 2009.  He had an impressive per-carry average of 6.6 yards in 2009.
