Thompson does have practice squad eligibility.

After serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, safety Christian Thompson was cut by the Ravens, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.


Thompson was a fourth-round draft pick in 2012. As it stands, the Ravens are now without Thompson and receiver Tommy Streeter, a sixth-round pick from the 2012 draft.

Next on the list that could be cut from that draft would be cornerback Asa Jackson, who's reached the halfway point of an eight-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. Jackson was drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 draft.

Thompson does have practice squad eligibility, though it might be tough for the Ravens to bring him on. Already on the practice squad are safeties Brynden Trawick and Omar Brown. Many thought Brown had 53-man roster capabilities and Trawick was recently moved from the active roster down to the practice squad.

What's next for Thompson remains to be seen.
