OWINGS MILLS — Some of the more interesting aspects of the Ravens’ 53-man roster that was announced Saturday:

- Seven wide receivers were kept.

Michael Campanaro, Kamar Aiken, and Deonte Thompson all made it. I thought Campanaro would make it for weeks, but I thought the Ravens would choose between Aiken and Thompson. Do the Ravens really need seven wide receivers, in an offense that will also feature two-tight end sets? If somebody wants to trade for Aiken or Thompson, the Ravens will certainly listen.

- The cornerback position remains fluid.

The Ravens cut both Dominique Franks and Derek Cox. It’s possible that either could be brought back. Lardarius Webb (back), Jimmy Smith (chest), and Asa Jackson (ankle) were all on the practice field Saturday, but Webb and Jackson had been absent from practice for weeks. Will they be ready for heavy reps Week 1 against the Bengals? Even with Chykie Brown still on the roster and Anthony Levine capable of playing both corner and safety, don’t be surprised if the Ravens make more moves at this spot.

Hey Clifton did not know you were such a late owl. On my way home from a establishment Friday night I had WFAN on out of New York and you were on with Tony Paige at 2 am talking football. I thought it was a cool segment that you did with him.Compliments to the both of you it kept me entertained until I got home.

There isn't much point in placing a player on the team just because he has 'CB' after his name on the roster sheet. If we bring back Cox or Franks, or add another corner with lack luster skills, what exactly does that player do for this team other than add another inactive player to the sidelines?
