A week ago the Ravens announced they were going to terminate defensive tackle Terrence Cody's contract following the Super Bowl. They lived up to the statement, officially announcing that Cody is no longer a part of the organization.

Cody's tenure in Baltimore concludes with 87 tackles and zero sacks over the past five years. A second-round draft pick out of Alabama, Cody never lived up to the hype surrounding him as a college standout.

Cody was slated to become a free agent this offseason. However, The Baltimore Sun reported that Cody is being investigated for animal cruelty, which could have played a role in the Ravens preemptively releasing him.

This past season, Cody did not record any statistics and was only active for one game. He spent most of the season on the physically unable to perform list due to a hip injury.
