NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora and the Carroll County Times’ Aaron Wilson have reported that the Baltimore Ravens will release veteran cornerbacks Chris Carr and Domonique Foxworth, and wide receiver Lee Evans. These moves will free up a good amount of cap space. This will make it easier for the Ravens to manage the future, potential contracts of Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, and Ben Grubbs.
Lee Evans faces a similar fate that T.J. Houzmanzadeh did last year. After dropping critical passes in the final game of the season, both were released that offseason. However, Evans drop cost the Ravens a trip to the Super Bowl. Additionally, a bad ankle injury that sat him out for the majority of the season didn’t help his cause either.
Chris Carr played mainly as a nickel corner in 2011 and struggled with a hamstring injury. His stats took a huge dive and he was no longer a value to the team. After the AFC Championship loss to the Patriots, Carr mentioned that he expected to be cut at the end of the season.
The veteran Domonique Foxworth is also expected to be cut. With $7 million salary and a bad knee, Foxworth is dead weight on the Ravens roster and it’s time for him to go.
