The Ravens will be scouring the waiver wire for reinforcements over the next two weeks, and I wouldn't be surprised if they opted to sign a veteran cornerback or wide receiver instead of keeping a shaky fringe player on the 53-man roster. It's usually the other way around; lower-tier teams scramble for the Ravens' leftovers when roster cuts are made.

I haven't had the chance to check and see which cornerbacks across the league are on the chopping block, but Sports Illustrated's John P. Lopez speculated on some bigger-named players (mostly on offense) that could become available soon. A few of the receivers Lopez listed might interest the Ravens with Mark Clayton, Donte' Stallworth and Demetrius Williams sidelined.

Lopez mentioned speedy Dallas wideout Sam Hurd, who is battling Patrick Crayton for a roster spot. Hurd has the deep speed to fill the void left by Stallworth's broken foot. And if Crayton got axed, the Ravens could maybe use him as a punt returner and slot receiver.

Other names on Lopez's list were Deion Branch (too old), Brandon Stokley (too similar to what the Ravens already have) and Sinorice Moss (too not-like-his-older-brother-Santana). Obviously, none of those guys wow me, though Moss can return punts.
