Street Talk Final 53 Reset, Ravens Add LB James

ROSTER NOTES: The Ravens have added former Atlanta Falcons linebacker Robert James to their 53-man roster. James, 29, was a 5th round selection by the Falcons out of Arizona State in 2008 and he’s been a core special teams player for Mike Smith’s club.

This move and the corresponding release of LaQuan Williams gets the Ravens to the league mandated roster limit of 53.

However, included in that 53 are Dennis Pitta and Ryan Jensen. The Ravens will place Pitta on IR with a designation to return tomorrow, September 2. They will fill Pitta’s spot with a corresponding roster move, more than likely with an offensive lineman or a cornerback.

Jensen, a player the Ravens hoped could provide interior offensive line depth as both a guard and center, has a broken foot. His inclusion in the 53 could signal that the Ravens are comfortable with his healing and rehabilitation.

It could also mean that the Ravens are simply parking the rookie from Colorado State Pueblo on the roster until the team makes another move before Thursday’s contest against the Denver Broncos.

Here’s the 53 as of today (9:50 AM)
