The Ravens have cut veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley and have re-signed veteran tight end Billy Bajema.
Stokley's release is a good indication that Jacoby Jones (knee), Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Deonte Thompson (concussion) are nearing a return.
The veteran wide receiver, a member of the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV championship team, had been dealing with a groin injury and didn’t play in the Ravens’ 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday.
Stokley didn’t practice Friday and was listed as questionable on the injury report.
As a vested veteran, Stokley’s $940,000 contract is guaranteed and counts against the Ravens’ salary cap.
Bajema is known for his blocking. He was cut Thursday when the Ravens made their trade official for offensive tackle Eugene Monroe.
Bajema is playing under a 1-year contract tthat counts $155,000 against the salary cap under the minimum salary benefit.
