The Baltimore Ravens have had to find different ways to maneuver their roster over the course of the 2021 season. That hasn’t changed as they get ready to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16, as injuries and now COVID-19 have taken their toll on the team.

On Wednesday, the team announced a flurry of roster moves, and among them was the signing of center Jimmy Murray to their practice squad. Baltimore needs offensive line depth badly, and Murray will provide another option at center while backup center Trystan Colon is still on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic also shed light on the fact that the team worked out offensive tackle Adrian Ealy, who was with the team on the practice squad for part of the year already.

Murray played football at Holy Cross, and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He’s also spent time with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.

Ealy signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2021, and spent all of training camp and the preseason with the team. Baltimore let go of Ealy during the last round of cuts, but brought him back on their practice squad, where he would stay until being released a few months later. If Ealy is brought back, he would be offensive tackle depth on a unit that is missing multiple key contributors.
