With the return of Deonte Thompson to the Ravens lineup, and with Jacoby Jones not too far behind him, Brandon Stokley had become expendable for the Ravens. The receiver position is still a question mark for this team, but with all of the young talent, the team felt like they had to get these young guys on the field. It didn’t help Stokley either that he was dealing with a groin injury these past few weeks, and it eventually became clear that the team was ready to move on. It is now time to really see what Deonte Thompson and even Tandon Doss can do on the field with extensive playing time.
In a corresponding move, the Ravens resigned tight end Billy Bajema, who was cut when the team traded for new left tackle Eugene Monroe.
