We seem to have come across the reason the Ravens terminated the contract of a guy whose contract expired this year anyway.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, Ravens nose tackle Terrence Cody is under investigation for animal cruelty.

The Baltimore County State’s attorney’s office said the case involves a dog, and no charges have been filed yet.

The Ravens are aware of the allegations, which has to explain why they made the move to part ways with a player who was going to be an unrestricted free agent in March.
