Former Ravens Center Jeremy Zuttah cut by 49ers only five months after trading for him

On March 15, 2017, the Baltimore Ravens traded Jeremy Zuttah and a sixth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers to jump up twelve spots in the 2017 NFL Draft. This trade was clearly a success on the Ravens side, as less than five months later the 49ers released Jeremy Zuttah.

Zuttah was an up-and-down player for the Ravens. A clear upgrade from Gino Gradkowski, but he wasn’t the second coming of Matt Birk.

Ozzie must be smiling with this update. He shed $5.8 million in cap before free agency and received a better draft pick (Ravens jumped 12 spots in the sixth round), all the while not losing anything they didn’t already plan to cut.

Below is the initial article from Baltimore Beatdown, discussing the Zuttah trade with the 49ers.
