Ravens Release DB Justin Bethel


The Baltimore Ravens announced Monday that they’ve released DB Justin Bethel and r=DT Jeremiah Ledbetter.

This move ensures that the Ravens will still receive a projected fourth-round compensatory pick they could have lost after the Titans cut Brent Urban loose last week.

Bethel, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract before signing a four-year, $15.66 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed with Arizona back in 2015.

Bethel was set to make base salaries of $4.5 million and $5 million over the final two years of the agreement when he agreed to a restructured contract that allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent last year. 

The Falcons signed Bethel to a contract for the 2018 season before he joined the Ravens this past March. 

In 2019, Bethel has appeared in seven games for the Ravens and recorded four tackles and a fumble recovery.
