Less than a month ago tight end Visanthe Shiancoe signed with the Baltimore Ravens as a free agent, now he is cut from their roster. Shaincoe signed with the Ravens in late July after Dennis Pitta was sidelined with a fractured hip. So far this season, Shiancoe has only played during the preseason and currently has five recorded catches. With Dallas Clark being added to the roster just recently, Shiancoe evidently becomes useless to the team.
Shiancoe is a former Minnesota Vikings’ starter who agreed to a one-year, nonguaranteed $940,000 contract early during training camp. Although Visanthe is a 10 season NFL veteran it is becoming more and more likely that he will retire in the near future.

With the Ravens needing to get their roster down to 75 players by Tuesday, the coaching staff has already released 11 other players. Running back Damien Berry, wide receiver Rashaad Carter, offensive lineman Jack Cornell, inside linebacker Bryan Hall, offensive lineman Ramon Harewood, cornerback Moe Lee, offensive tackle David Mims, defensive end Will Pericak, wide receiver Gerrard Sheppard, wide receiver Tommy Streeter and outside linebacker Meshak Williams. Harewood (2010) and Streeter (2012) were former Ravens’ draft picks.

In advance of the Tuesday deadline for teams to cut down their
rosters to 75 players, the Baltimore Ravens cleaned out the cage parting ways with a flock of players, including tight end Visanthe Shiancoe.

Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been cut by the Baltimore Ravens, less than one month after joining the team as a free agent.
Shiancoe signed on July 28 after the Ravens lost tight end Dennis Pitta with a dislocated and fractured hip. The 33-year-old Shiancoe caught five passes in the preseason.
The addition of free agent Dallas Clark earlier this month made Shiancoe expendable...
The Ravens announced a flurry of roster moves Sunday morning as they continue the process of shrinking their roster from 90 to 53 players.
Damien Berry (RB) Rashad Carter (WR) Jack Cornell (OL) Bryan Hall (LB) Ramon Harewood (OL) Moe Lee (CB) David Mims (OT) Will Pericak (DE) Gerrard Sheppard (WR) Tommy Streeter (WR) and Meshak WIlliams (OLB) were placed on waivers.
The Ravens won the Super Bowl with Joe Flacco at the helm last year. I have been down on Flacco over the years, but I have to give him credit. In the offseason he landed a huge contract, great for him. Now what? Boldin is gone, Pitta is gone, who's he going to throw to each week? Smith? Sure he has skills but he needs help.
The bottom line is that the Ravens are...
Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker and current ESPN NFL analyst Ray Lewis would deliver inspirational speeches before every Ravens game. They got the team fired up to play the game and roll some opponents, and more often than not, that's exactly what ended up happening.
Maligned Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was there for Lewis' pregame rituals over each of the last...
I guess I have a higher opinion of Tommy Streeter's talents than the Ravens do, because I thought the wide receiver from Miami had an inside track on making the team as a fourth wideout--- especially with David Reed gone.
But that ship has sailed--at least for now. Maybe Streeter gets picked for the Practice Squad later on. Maybe he gets picked up now by another team? Maybe...
It looks like the Baltimore Ravens invited some nuns to watch them practice today.

Visanthe Shiancoe‘s days in the NFL might be numbered.
After signing with the Ravens late last month to help fill the void left in wake of tight end Dennis Pitta‘s season-ending injury, Shiancoe was waived by the Ravens on Sunday as they seek to get down to that 75-man roster limit by Tuesday’s deadline.
Shiancoe didn’t look very good in training camp, according to reports...
The Baltimore Ravens have cut Caleb Hanie and Dayne Crist, leaving two quarterbacks on the roster heading into next week's regular season opener in Denver.
Starting quarterback Joe Flacco will be again backed by Tyrod Taylor. Hanie saw limited action during the preseason and Crist was signed last week after Taylor was being tested for a concussion.
Other cuts Friday included...
It was pretty obvious that Joe Flacco needs go-to receivers who know what Joe needs to do after enduring last week's preseason game against Carolina.
I will never forget Joe's hollering at Tandon Doss after Doss completely mucked up a route--- which resulted in a game-changing INT.
Fortunately for the Ravens it was still preseason.
But the misadventure of Tandon...
The one thing we can take away from Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's performance in this bank ad is that he will never be foraying into the Hollywood movie scene.

Last year during the preseason, John Harbaugh brought Muhammad Ali to camp to help inspire his Ravens players for the season ahead — and it worked out Super. This season, the head coach brought in another special guest, only this time he went in a more lighthearted direction.

In the Baltimore Ravens’ third-preseason game, the defending Super Bowl champions were handed its first-loss by the hands of the Carolina Panthers.
The NFL preseason is funny because it gives coaches and fans a glimpse at what they are working with, in terms of talent and capabilities, but really gives no edification of what to expect for the regular season.
