Ravens Insider: Ravens cut Graham, T. Smith, others

The Ravens have revealed the players who did not make the team’s 53-man active roster.

The biggest development is the decision to waive kicker Shayne Graham, the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history. Graham connected on 2-of-3 field goals in preseason games, while incumbent Billy Cundiff was perfect on all three of his attempts.

In training camp workouts at Westminster when reporters were permitted to watch, Graham converted 83 of 103 attempts, a success rate of 80.5 percent. Cundiff went 82 of 96, or 85.4 percent.

The organization also cut quarterback Troy Smith, who completed 54.0 percent (34 of 63) of his passes for 388 yards this preseason. But he was intercepted twice in the team’s 27-21 loss to the St. Louis Rams in the preseason finale Thursday night, and he was bumped in the depth chart when the Ravens signed Marc Bulger in July.

The following players were also released: Cornerbacks Travis Fisher, K.J. Gerard, Prince Miller, Chris Hawkins and Brad Jones, wide receivers Demetrius Williams, Justin Harper and Eron Riley, offensive tackles Joe Reitz and Devin Tyler, guard Bryan Mattison, tight end Davon Drew, running back Curtis Steele and linebacker Albert McClellan.

The team moved offensive tackles Stefan Rodgers (right ankle) and rookie Ramon Harewood (knees), defensive tackle Kelly Talavou (left leg) and guard/center David Hale (bruised tailbone) to injured reserve.
