Two former Ravens claimed off waivers

A couple of players that the Ravens waived Saturday as part of their cut down to 53 players found new homes today.

Cornerback/kick returner Asa Jackson, who failed to secure the Ravens' primary returner job because of a mistake-filled preseason, was awarded to the New York Giants via a waiver claim. Jackson provides insurance for a Giants' team that has been decimated by injuries in their secondary this summer.

Rookie guard Robert Myers, a fifth-round pick out of Tennessee State, was claimed by the Indianapolis Colts. Myers was the highest draft pick to be cut by the Ravens after his first preseason since fifth-round tight end Davon Drew was waived in 2009.

The Ravens were not awarded any waiver claims and the majority of the players that they waived yesterday cleared and are now available to sign elsewhere or return to the practice squad. That group includes quarterback Bryn Renner and outside linebacker Brennen Beyer.

The Ravens are expected to put second-year defensive end Brent Urban, who had surgery to repair a torn biceps last month, on the injured reserve list with a designation to return. That will open up a spot on their 53-man roster.
