OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens cut imposing wide receiver Clarence Moore on Saturday, parting ways with a former sixth-round draft pick who was inactive for three of the first five games.
Linebacker Dennis Haley was immediately promoted from the practice squad to take Moore’s place on the active roster.
Moore was installed as a starter last season, but quickly lost his job due to frequent dropped passes and a lack of toughness over the middle.
Drafted 199th overall in 2004 out of Northern Arizona, Moore emerged as a red-zone threat because of his 6-foot-6, 220-pound size and leaping ability. As a rookie, he started six games and led the team with four touchdown catches.
In 2005, he slumped to three catches for 59 yards and was deactivated for the final 12 games. He hasn’t caught a pass this season.
Moore missed all of the team’s minicamps while recuperating from hernia surgery and began training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
If Moore clears waivers, he could be re-signed.
The Ravens didn’t make a corresponding roster move to take the place of Haley, a former University of Virginia starter, and currently have seven players on their practice squad.
