The Baltimore Ravens have continued their string of releasing players today as the team will reportedly cut ties with their starting center of the last three seasons, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.
Looks like #Ravens bidding adieu to veteran OL Jeremy Zuttah. Person apprised of team's plans says he'll be released today, 6 days into FA.— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) March 15, 2017
Jeremy Zuttah is the latest of these expected Ravens cuts that many believed would happen this offseason. Zuttah's release comes after the team parted ways with Shareece Wright, Kendrick Lewis, Elvis Dumervil and Lardarius Webb. This move could save the Ravens $3.5 million in cap space if this is labeled a post-June 1st designation.
The Ravens actually tried to trade Zuttah away before releasing him according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Ravens tried to trade Zuttah, but couldn't find a deal. Thus, today's decision to release him.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) March 15, 2017
Zuttah got off to a good start in Baltimore in 2014, but has struggled mightily over the last 2 seasons, making his release all the more expected. The Ravens are now officially in the market for a center and with Nick Mangold still out there, the Ravens could decide to go after the former New York Jet. Either way, the Ravens aren't done. Stay tuned.
