Coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens put the team on notice.

For Ravens players not producing, you will be let go. That seems to be the statement the organization made when it released defensive end Marcus Spears and safety Michael Huff on Wednesday.

Huff entered the season as a starter at free safety, with the organization holding hope that he could fill in for Ed Reed, who left via free agency to Houston. Huff had a horrible opening game against Denver and failed to produce on defense and special teams, losing his starting spot to rookie Matt Elam in the process.

Spears was brought in to help stop the run, which was a problem a year ago. But a nagging knee injury and up-and-down play led to his release. Spears thanked the city of Baltimore for supporting him during his time with the Ravens.


Filling the two roster spots are safeties Omar Brown and Brynden Trawick. Replacing those two on the practice squad are quarterback Nick Stephens and receiver Kamar Aiken.

The Baltimore Sun reported this morning that Stephens and Aiken had recently tried out for the Ravens.
