Here are 3 former Baltimore Ravens that are still being paid in 2017
No team ever wants to have to pay dead money.
Dead money is salary that is paid to players who have been cut or released from a team. The team must still pay the remaining money left on their contracts. It is frustrating for NFL teams, but it ensures that the players are paid the money that they were guaranteed when they signed their contracts. The Baltimore Ravens are dealing with this problem going into the free agency.
According to Spotrac, the Ravens rank 4th in the NFL in dead money for the 2017 season. They are tight on cap space as it is and have key free agents that they need to bring back this offseason. A total of $5.4 million is owed to 9 different players. There are three former players who take up the majority of this dead money.
