Here are 5 players that could be cut to free up cap space for the Baltimore Ravens
With the 2017 free agency season right around the corner, there are going to be decisions made in the Baltimore Ravens organization.
The Ravens rank 28th out of 32 teams in cap space for 2017. They only have $19-20 million in cap room. This may seem like a lot, but there are teams like the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns that have $80-100 million. While both of those teams are terrible, it shows that the Ravens are in a tight spot.
Joe Flacco’s contract takes up a whopping 14.25% of the cap space in 2017. That is ginormous for just one player. But for the Ravens, Flacco is not the only problem. They are still paying dead money to former players. Eugene Monroe will be paid $4.4 million next season and he doesn’t even play football anymore.
On the other hand, there are other players that the Ravens could cut to free up some cap space. It may not be to the pleasure of some fans, but the NFL is a business. The Ravens need to focus on signing key free agents such as Brandon Williams, Kyle Juszczyk, and Rick Wagner
