Re-projecting the Ravens' final 53-man roster

The Ravens whittled down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday, putting linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo and running back Matt Lawrence on the reserve PUP list. On Monday, they cut cornerback Doug Dutch and put offensive lineman Daniel Sanders and defensive back Marcus Paschal on injured reserve.

Tougher decisions will be made Saturday, when NFL teams must trim their rosters to 53 players. Two weeks ago, I projected how the Ravens' final roster would look. Please allow me to adjust, and, as always, let me know if you disagree.
