The Baltimore Ravens, following a regular season in which they won an NFL-high 13 games, have been resting and sitting around watching the Wild Card round of the playoffs while preparing for their postseason opener.
They have been a bit banged up lately, but they will have a decent amount of time to get healthy before they begin their quest for their third Super Bowl championship.
On Monday, they made a minor roster move when they waived veteran wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, per their official Twitter account.

Treadwell played five games for Baltimore this season, and in those games, he registered one catch for 16 yards.
He has been a journeyman throughout his eight NFL seasons, and he has career totals of 111 receptions, 1,242 yards, and five touchdowns.
Treadwell’s best season was 2021 when he had 434 yards and a touchdown off 33 catches for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He was originally the No. 23 pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings out of the University of Mississippi, where he put up 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns in his third and final season.
The wide receiver position has seen a major improvement for the Ravens this season, as rookie Zay Flowers has emerged as a stud and Odell Beckham Jr. has been productive in spots.
But they will need star tight end Mark Andrews back in order to bolster their championship hopes.
Andrews has been out since Week 11 with an ankle injury, but he has returned to practice and could return either in the Divisional round or in the AFC Championship Game, should they make it that far.
