Ravens Tag Ray Rice, Officially Cut Lee Evans & Chris Carr


Ray Rice

Several outlets are reporting that the Ravens have made the decision to franchise RB Ray Rice.

We all knew that this move was coming so it’s by no means a shock. Baltimore will pay him $7.7 million for the 2012 season but will know have to figured it they’re going to keep players Ben Grubbs and Jarret Johnson.

The Ravens have bought some extra time to negotiate a long-term deal with Rice but the talks are likely to spill over into season.


Lee Evans & Chris Carr

The Ravens have officially announced a number of transactions today and among them, the release of WR Lee Evans and CB Chris Carr.

Yesterday we mentioned that both players would be released in the coming days so once again, no surprises here.

Evans had a base salary of $3.275 million which just wasn’t an option after he couldn’t get healthy last season. Carr lost his starting job and wasn’t the contract that he signed last season. Both moves make plenty of sense considering their performance and the fact that Baltimore needs the extra cash.


Ricky Williams

The Ravens place Williams on the reserve/retired list which means that there’s a chance that he could return at a later time. Williams will be 35 at the start of next season so it’s hard to imagine that he’ll be willing to return again.
