The Ravens withdrew Rolle's (Achilles) contract tender Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Rolle, formerly a restricted free agent, will now hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. He spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve after suffering a torn Achilles the summer prior and is unlikely to land a new contract until he can prove he is fully recovered.
Rolle (Achilles) spent the 2016 campaign on injured reserve.
The journeyman defensive back suffered a torn Achilles during the offseason program, ending his season before it could kick off. Although the ailment could impact his workload in the coming months, the upcoming restricted free agent may be hard-pressed to land a gig with 22 tackles (18 solo) to his name in 19 games across two prior years in the NFL.
Rolle tore his Achilles during the team's offseason program in May, so his placement on this list means his season isn't necessarily over. Expect Rolle to be placed on short-term IR in advance of Week 1, giving him a chance to return at some point during the season, but any playing time he may see in 2016 completely depends on how fast he can recover from the typically harsh injury.
Rolle was signed to the Ravens' practice squad once waived by the Texans last November, and then resigned by the Ravens on a one-year deal in April. Rolle could be back with the team in 2017, but, to date, has recorded just one tackle during his stint in Baltimore.
