The Ravens have begun the process of building their 2022 roster, as they signed eight players to Reserve/Future deals Monday and another player Thursday.
Baltimore signed these players the day after their 2021 season ended:
DB Robert Jackson OT Jaryd Jones-Smith G/DT Khalil McKenzie WR Jaylon Moore C James Murray TE Tony Poljan DB Kevin Toliver WR Binjimen Victor
On Thursday, Baltimore inked:
NT Isaiah Mack
Reserve/Future deals do not count against the team's salary cap until the new league year begins but keeps the players in Baltimore. They are usually for young players who the Ravens think could have a future with the team and battle for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Some of last year's players who signed Reserve/Future deals were quarterback Tyler Huntley, long snapper Nick Moore, cornerback Chris Westry and running back Ty'Son Williams.
Mack played in two games this season and was a bright spot in the Ravens' loss in Cincinnati, playing 33% of the defensive snaps and notching a sack. Undrafted out of Chattanooga in 2019, he has also spent time with the Titans, Patriots, Broncos and Steelers. He spent last offseason in Denver.
Jackson played in five games for the Ravens, helping to fill in for an injury-devastated secondary. McKenzie played in five games, all on defense, but was also training on the offensive line. Poljan suited up for one game in Cincinnati. Jones-Smith was active for three games down the stretch.
