The Ravens cut a pair of veterans today, but quickly admitted one of the economic realities of the business.
General Manager Ozzie Newsome admitted it was all about the money, saying both players might be back.
“There could come a point later on when we would consider bringing back Vonta and Jameel,” Newsome said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “They are our types of players.”
The Ravens peeled nearly $5 million off the salary cap with today’s moves, and while both have been solid players, they aren’t the kind that are going to command big markets in free agency.
So if the Ravens don’t find someone cheaper between now and then, bringing them back for the league minimum (at a number far less than $5 million) might just be in the cards.
