The Steelers aren’t the only AFC North team saying goodbye to one of their players on Thursday.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times and Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network are both reporting that the Ravens are releasing cornerback Chris Carr. Carr played just nine games for Baltimore in 2011 because of a back injury and the emergence of rookie Jimmy Smith helped make him expendable a year after signing a four-year contract with the team. Carr, who was a healthy scratch for the playoff win against the Texans, was set to make $2.5 million in 2012 and had $7 million coming his way in 2013 and 2014.
He’s not likely to be the last Ravens cornerback sent packing. Wilson reports that Dominique Foxworth will likely find himself on the chopping block, as will wide receiver Lee Evans. Lardarius Webb, Cary Williams and Smith are expected to be the top three Ravens corners in 2012.
