Looks like #Ravens bidding adieu to veteran OL Jeremy Zuttah. Person apprised of team’s plans says he’ll be released today, 6 days into FA.

The Ravens have been cutting vets left and right this offseason, and with good reason. They were paying too many older players a lot of money for the performance they were getting back, and Zuttah is the latest to be let go.
The Ravens had talked about getting bigger and stronger on the offensive line, and as a small center, Zuttah didn’t fit that mold. But this is now two starting offensive lineman from last year that are gone, after Rick Wagner signed with the Lions, and the Ravens have yet to add anyone to replace them.
I love what the Ravens have done this offseason, including this move, so we’ll see what their plan is to build the line back up.
