The Ravens may still have some ideas for a couple of veteran players who aren’t currently on the 53-man roster.
Running back Justin Forsett, who was cut yesterday, and return man Devin Hester, who tried out in Baltimore last week, both could be signed, according to ESPN.
One option for the Ravens could be waiting until after Week One to sign Forsett and Hester. Both players are vested veterans, so their salaries would be guaranteed if they’re on the Week One roster but not if they’re signed in Week Two or later.
The decision to cut Forsett saved the Ravens $3 million in salary cap space, and the team could bring him back at a lower price. Hester has been a free agent for six weeks and seems to be drawing more interest from the Ravens than anyone else.
At the moment the Ravens’ running back depth chart includes Javorious Allen, Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon. Tavon Young is slated to return kickoffs while Lardarious Webb is the favorite to return punts.
