The Ravens made a bit of a surprise transaction on Saturday, when they waived defensive tackle Daylon Mack and punter Dom Maggio.
Mack, a fifth-round pick from a year ago, played in just one game last season before being placed on Injured Reserve. Maggio was a rookie punter out of Wake Forest.
Mack only played nine snaps in the entirety of his rookie season. He was expected to compete for the backup nose tackle spot with Justin Ellis to play behind Brandon Williams.
The Ravens boosted their defensive line spot significantly in the offseason, as they drafted Justin Madubuike and Broderick Washington, traded for Calais Campbell, signed Derek Wolfe and re-signed Jihad Ward and Justin Ellis.
Maggio is a local product, from Monkton, Maryland. He attended Boys' Latin in Baltimore in high school. He was set to give the Ravens an extra camp body at punter behind Sam Koch, one of the top punters in the league.
