    Because the Ravens pride themselves on being "player- friendly" and releasing him now - with a June 1 designation - allows him to hit the market when it opens and have a fair shot at free agency, as opposed to June when there's less money to go around and jobs are already spoken for.

    Plus, he's obviously not in their plans.

    TRue, but wonder if cutting him before June 1st saves more money for 2013. But if not, cut him after June 1st, save an extra 1.9 million and training camps haven't even started he would have more than enough time to find a team.

    Barring anything unexpected, that should be their only dead money in 2013 (unless Cundiff loses his job in TC), other than the minor amounts for the bonuses paid to UDFAs.

    I see your point, but we have 2cb's to tender and 2 coming
    Off surgery. I'd wait to see how it all pans out first before releasing him. Plus at a cost of nearly 2 million bucks. The Ravens don't need to be that friendly to leave them exposed and take a cap hit. Carr has plenty of time to find a job, injuries happen and other June 1st cuts as well.Plus having an extra 2 million after June 1st allows Ravens to add needed peices if need be ie like last year Gurode and MCKinnie. It is a business afterall.

    I think you're making a mountain out of a mole in regards to the injuries. I'm pretty sure these moves were made with these injuries in mind and if the Ravens didn't feel comfortable they wouldn't have been so quick to act.
    I have to admit that Carr's release (especially as the first one) is still a little surprising. That tells me the Ravens are very comfortable with Cary's healing time and the play of Ghorrer and Brown.

    There are plenty of cases where off-season procedures go unreported. This is nothing to be alarmed about. Last year, Jarret Johnson was asked how his off-season went. Johnson said that he had a great off-season, since he only had one procedure. There guys have so many procdures that most of them go unreported.

    Not sure why folks are surprised.

    And I wouldn't count on Foxworth either. Just because Carr is gone doesn't mean Foxy is staying.

    No one is completely surprised by the release but more likely the timing of it. As for Foxworth, everyone and their grandmother knows he's gone. Much has been said about his impending release on this board.

    More like an exit physical.

    Carr was a lock to be cut.

    Foxworth was the lock of the century to be cut.

    He also reported Pagano was staying.

    Grain of salt.
