Robert Nelson: Cut by Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was released by the Ravens on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Even after the Ravens signed Nelson to a reserve/future contract back in January, the cornerback was always going to be seen as a long shot to make the team's final roster. He'll now be an unrestricted free agent and look to potentially latch on with another team before the start of training camp.
