On Saturday, the Baltimore Ravens announced a roster move to improve depth in the secondary ahead of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Baltimore promoted cornerback, Maurice Canady from the practice squad, and waived offensive tackle Greg Senat.
Canady was drafted by the Ravens in 2016. He spent the last few years on Baltimore’s 53-man roster but was cut at the end of the 2019 preseason. Canady was signed to the practice squad, with the intention of using him as a reserve cornerback. When veteran cornerback, Jimmy Smith, suffered an MCL sprain in last week’s game, many speculated that Canady could be promoted to provide depth in the secondary. This is exactly what happened. The Ravens were already short on cornerback after the team lost Tavon Young to a neck injury in the preseason.
Baltimore waived offensive tackle, Greg Senat, to make room for Canady. Senat joined the Ravens as a member of the 2018 draft class. Although the team had high hopes for the young offensive lineman, Senat failed to impress coaches over his two offseasons in Baltimore. The Ravens may elect to sign him to the practice squad.
