The Ravens are gearing up to sign whoever they draft and some free agents, while also extending Ray Rice and maybe re-signing Ben Grubbs. For all of that to happen, they need to fit all of their players within the salary cap. Baltimore continued that process today. According to multiple reports, the Ravens released cornerback Domonique Foxworth after he failed a physical with the team. He is still recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered before training camp in 2010. According to this tweet from Aaron Wilson, Foxworth had a base salary of $5.6 million and an $8.6 million number against the cap. The Ravens have now released three players, Lee Evans, Chris Carr and Foxworth, and placed Ricky Williams on the retired/reserve list.

Ricky Williams placed on reserve/retired list

The Baltimore Ravens placed running back Ricky Williams on the reserve/retired list last Friday. By placing Williams on the reserve/retired list, the Ravens would retain Williams’ rights should he return for the 2012 season. Williams, 34, is under contract through next season, but Baltimore gets to take his $1.5 million base salary off its salary [...]

Ravens release Foxworth

The Baltimore Ravens released cornerback Domonique Foxworth on Monday after he failed a physical. The move had been anticipated for sometime, as Foxworth was set to make $7 million in base salary in 2012, but had played in just two games over the past two seasons because of a serious ACL tear. Foxworth, 28, is [...]

How long is too long for Rice?

To no one’s surprise, the Ravens placed the franchise tag on running back Ray Rice Friday. The hope is to work out a long-term deal for the Pro Bowler. That brings up the question how long is too long? Rice just turned 25, so conventional thinking is he has four great years left. His agent is reportedly seeking a deal similar to the one Adrian Peterson signed before the 2011 season...

Ravens release cornerback Foxworth

The Baltimore Ravens have released cornerback Domonique Foxworth. Foxworth played in 18 games over three seasons with the Ravens. He missed the 2010 season after tearing a ligament in his right knee on the first day of training camp and appeared in two games in 2011 because of knee problems. He was entering the final year of a four-year, $27.2 million contract. The 29-year-old...

Texans, Foster provide blueprint for Ravens, Rice

Wasn’t it just yesterday I wrote about a possible contract for Ray Rice? As I was perusing the Internet Sunday night, I saw the Seattle Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch reportedly came to a contract agreement on a four-year deal worth $31 million with $18 million guaranteed. Then I see this morning the Texans and Arian Foster agreed to a five-year deal worth $43.5 million and $20.75...

Ravens Update

Domonique Foxworth's frustrating and painful tenure with the Baltimore Ravens reached an unsurprising end Monday afternoon.

Ch-Ch-Changes at the Nest

I know there’s been a dearth of posting around here lately, and I apologize. There is, however, a very good reason. Let me explain… The times, they are a-changin’ here at B’More Birds’ Nest. When I started this blog way back in September of 2007, it was just a fun way to vent about the Ravens, who had just lost an incredibly frustrating game to the Cincinnati Bengals to...

For now, Foxworth remains a Raven

It’s somewhat puzzling that veteran cornerback Domonique Foxworth wasn’t released Friday along with veterans Chris Carr and Lee Evans. It has been highly publicized for weeks that Foxworth was likely on his way out with both Carr and Evans. But for the time being, Foxworth still has a job with the Ravens. Foxworth, 28, has [...]

It’s NFL Tagging Time

Ever since it’s inception in 2007, the franchise tag has been applied to some of the best players in the NFL. It’s an easy way for teams to keep their stars for at least one more year, without having to sign them to a long-term deal. Teams and players are then able to take the franchise tag year to work out a longer deal if possible. Some players don’t take too kindly to the...

Baltimore pulls plug on the Lee Evans era

Last time we saw Lee Evans, he was busy getting stripped by New England Patriots defensive back Sterling Moore during the AFC title game in what should have been a game-winning reception that propelled Baltimore into Super Bowl XLVI. Instead, Evans was unable to cradle the ball in the end zone in the closing moments of January’s AFC title tilt that Baltimore lost 23-20. Today...
