Quincy-native Jack Cornell cut from Baltimore Ravens

Posted:

(WGEM) -- Quincy Notre Dame product Jack Cornell has been cut from the Baltimore Ravens roster heading into the regular season.

Cornell announced on his Facebook fan page Friday that he did not make the final 53-man roster. NFL teams had to reduce their rosters from a 75 to 53 players following Thursday's final preseason game.

However, it appears as if the dream of playing in the NFL is far from over for Cornell.

"Unfortunately, I did not make the Ravens 53-man roster. The good news is I have a spot on their practice squad if I do not get picked up by someone else," Cornell posted on his Facebook fan page.
 
Cornell played extensively during Thursday's preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, being on the field during three Ravens scoring drives.

"Unfortunately, I did not make the Ravens 53-man roster. The good news is I have a spot on their practice squad if I do not get picked up by someone else. The way this works is the Ravens put me on waivers and other teams will know I am a free agent and can pick me up, and then I would be on their 53-man roster. Everything I have heard from the front office is the word is out on me and teams are aware of how good of a camp I had. There is a strong possibility I can make someone else's team its just a matter of wait and see. Either way I know I have a job in the NFL and that is all that matters.
 
To all of my fans, I really appreciate all of the support you have given me during the beginning of my career in the National Football League and know that this is not the end, it is only the beginning. To everyone from Quincy, you have no idea how appreciative I am that so many of you came to the St. Louis game last night. It truly means the world to me that you all came out to show your support. I feel so blessed and honored to come from a community who supports their own the way you guys do. Love the city I come from and the school I went to. Raider for life!"
