Ravens release Trevor Pryce

In a somewhat surprising move, the Ravens announced this morning that they’ve cut DE Trevor Pryce, the team’s sack leader last year, and have re-signed S Ken Hamlin.

Perhaps Pryce should have known his roster spot was in trouble when he took a $2.5 million paycut before the season. He hadn’t played as much this year, and he only recorded a single assisted tackle in the team’s first three games.

Cory Redding had moved ahead of him on the depth chart, and DT Brandon McKinney has been playing well. Although Redding suffered a concussion last Sunday – another reason the release of Pryce is a surprise – expect rookie NT Terrence Cody to be active for the first time in his career when the team faces the Steelers on Sunday.

Considering the 35-year-old Pryce has slowed down considerably, today might have been Pryce’s last day in an NFL locker room.

For his career, Pryce totaled 90 sacks, the fourth-most among active players and the 34th-best number in NFL history.

UPDATE (10:22 a.m.):
According to a Pro Football Talk source, the Ravens could have dumped Pryce simply to make room for Hamlin. That means the team might re-sign Pryce next week.

UPDATE (11:35 a.m.): During his meeting with the media today, Harbaugh said it was a high possibility Pryce would be back with the team.

Raves release Trevor Pryce

This really ISN'T that much of a shock to see Trevor Pryce released. Quite honestly he should have never made the original 53 man roster. His best playing days are behind him and he was playing in a reserve role on a team that is deep on defensive lineman. Besides the fact that he does not play special teams and isn't a pass rush specialist - what was left for Trevor to fill in for on this team? Ken Hamlin makes our secondary that much deeper and he contributes on special teams and makes us the Ravens a better team.

Best of luck Trevor in your post football career. Thanks for a few good years.

I like Trevor, but with the production the Ravens have seen out of him doesn't fit what they're needs are. He is constantly getting single coverage (while Ngata gets the dbl's) without the pressure the Ravens expect. I think Cody will come in and be a run stopping force. That and the addition of Paul Kruger will up those specific needs (to get pressure & to not repeat the Hillis incident). They made mention about bringing Trevor back and I think for the rotation, that will help.
