Ravens waive Huff and Spears add Brown and Trawick

Michael Huff in 2012The Baltimore Ravens made a bunch of roster moves today as they have cut Michael Huff and Marcus Spears.  To replace them the Ravens signed Omar Brown and Brynden Trawick from the practice squad.  The Ravens also added Kamar Aiken a wide receiver and Nick Stephens a quarterback to the practice squad.

Huff was one of the Ravens starting safeties in the opening game against the Denver Broncos.  Huff came in to the Ravens as a veteran player that was going to bridge the gap for Matt Elam.  After Huff played poorly in Denver Elam replaced him.  Huff’s time on the field has diminished week by week and he has been playing mostly on special teams.  Huff struggled on special teams and became expendable, he only had six total tackles.

Spears has also struggled and with Terrence Cody expected back from injury and Brandon Williams playing well he became expendable. Spears only had ten tackles this season.

Brown and Trawick will make their money on special teams, both have been on the Ravens roster before.  Brown was on the roster last year during the Ravens Super Bowl run and played well.  Trawick started the season on the active roster, he was the player that ran into Jacoby Jones in Denver.

I like the moves getting some fresh young talent on the field.  Huff has been very disappointing and Spears has not been very productive.

Here is the Ravens press release.
