Editor's Note: Props to me for finding a photo of both of these guys getting beat by some random Jaguars receiver.
Lewis, 28, has played seven NFL seasons with the Chiefs, Texans and Ravens. He started 15 games for the Ravens in 2015 but was a backup last season.
Wright, 29, also spent the last two seasons with the Ravens and started 15 games in that time. Wright, who previously played with the Chargers, has one career interception in 67 games. (Pro Football Talk)
The purge has begun. The signing of Wright was a huge mistake before last season so I'm glad the Ravens cut bait on him when they did. Kendrick Lewis was nowhere to be found in 2016 so his departure will hardly be noticed. Despite losing two underperforming players, the secondary is now in serious need of some depth.
Here are some other Ravens that we could see getting release this week......
- Kyle Arrington
- Dennis Pitta
- Lardarius Webb
- Elvis Dumervil
- Benjamin Watson
- Mike Wallace
Right now the Ravens only have about $15 million in cap space, 5th lowest in the league. They have to make some serious additions to a roster with some huge holes. Stay tuned here for more news about potential salary cap cuts and free agent comings and goings.
