The Ravens have released three undrafted rookies to create roster spots for five new players.
The Ravens cut safety Dexter Moody (Albany State), linebacker Xavius Boyd (Western Kentucky) and cornerback Avery Patterson (Oregon).
Moody had drawn praise from Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Thursday during the final day of a mandatory minicamp, but the team is crowded at safety.
"Dexter is a very good athlete," Harbaugh said. "He has size, speed. He’s a tough guy with good hand-eye coordination. Coming from a smaller school, he’s had more to learn. He’s done a pretty good job with it, but that’s always a challenge with a young guy like that."
