Ravens Fill Roster With Additions Of Quarterback And Guard

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Just last week the Baltimore Ravens added a few more names to the team with the signing of Ronnie Stanley and veteran cornerback Jerraud Powers, but that did not stop General Manager Ozzie Newsome from signing even more talent to now full, 90-man roster.

The Ravens signed quarterback Josh Johnson and guard Vladimir Ducasse Monday morning, May 16, adding even more competition at the positions.

Offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse was a draft pick of the Jets in 2010, and started 11 games last year with the Chicago Bears. The Ravens will be his fourth team in four seasons (Jets, Vikings, Bears).

Johnson will have to compete with Ryan Mallett and Jerrod Johnson for one of Joe Flacco's backup spots. But for now, he's an extra arm to have during team workouts and the upcoming Organized Team Activities (OTAs). Josh Johnson is entering his ninth season and joining his seventh team in six seasons.

The Ravens also signed another rookie free agent Sam Brown, a defensive back from Missouri Western State.
