The Ravens released reserve cornerback Doug Dutch, the first of five cuts the team has to make to get down to the 75-player limit by Tuesday.
Dutch was acquired from the Washington Redskins for fourth-string quarterback John Beck earlier this month.
"He did a nice job for us," coach John Harbaugh said. "We appreciate it."
Harbaugh indicated that the Ravens will reduce the roster by reaching "a couple" of injury settlements with players.
The final major cutdown is Saturday, when the Ravens have to reduce their roster to 53 players.
