There’s only three players that have been with the Baltimore Ravens longer than center Mike Flynn. Jonathan Ogden, Ray Lewis and Matt Stover. That should tell you what kind of career with the Ravens came to an end yesterday when the Ravens cut their starting center of the last seven seasons.
Flynn was a casualty of the annual salary cap campaign, and his $2 million salary for the upcoming season will make for $3.3 million in cap room for the franchise.
You hate to see a true team cornerstone go, but in an era of free agency and big payouts for superlative players, it’s a necessary evil to remain competitive in the NFL.
