    AW is wrong. He neglects the fact that BA's slot in the Top 51 is filled by a new player, who will account for $480,000. So adding $807,000 to our previous free cap space is not correct.

    Draft Tom Wort.

    Best of luck to BA, and I wish to thank him for his time with the team; he always came across as a pretty decent guy and was excellent in his role. As a bisexual man and Ravens fan, I've been proud that he has been one of the flag bearers for issues of equality.

He always seems to play well in those instances, so this is quite a peculiar move.

    If you make it to camp and can't justify giving a player that old a spot in the 53 man roster, that's fine. Why do it now, particularly with Jameel McClain being no sure thing to even play a single snap in 2013? You can always cut him in training camp if it's apparent he's not making the team. Doing it now just further limits future options all for a very minimal cap savings.

    The Tweet about the $5.356M under was about two hours before the Tweet about BA's release and the $807K in cap savings.

    Re: Ayanbedjo released (?)

    Thanks for the special team play....

    Is it sad that I now wait to read the Facebook comments on the ravens page when someone is released for humor? A VAST minority get the situation where as the majority is just comic relief. Quite the opposite on these threads where 99.0% of the posters understand the game of football. Makes me appreciate this site more and more.

    Regardless, $807,000 isn't added to anything. Only $327,000 is.

    Remove $807,000 for BA
    Add $480,000 for his replacement
    = $327,000 cap savings

    As for current cap space, Ravor can tell us soon, and Luke has a comprehensive sheet as well, though last I saw his total was a couple hundred thousand off from Ravor's (still not sure why).

    I think people are assuming this was for cap reasons.

    I think it's because he's 37 and simply not going to fit into the newer, younger defense that Ozzie is trying to create.

    Less $480,000 for his Rule of 51 replacement.

    I think it's to clear up space to either resign McKinnie or possibly even Dansby. Just tossing a name out there,Braylon Edwards could probably be had for little more than the vet minimum at this point.Any interest?

    I think cap space is a secondary reason...I think this move is much closer to the Pollard release. We don't get much savings, but he was no longer worth the amount we were paying him.

    Minus the $480k that now gets paid to the guy who replaces him on the RO51 roster. Nobody seems to ever factor that in.

    Hard to factor it in until we know who that player will be.If It's Dansby or McKinnie that's $807K that can be applied towards their 2013 salary

    Our figures are off by $200-300k. Not sure why, since I have all the same cap values as him.

    Re: Ayanbedjo released (?)

    They couldn't possibly be trying to make room for McKinnie are they? Would they consider Brandon Albert for a draft pick? The Ravens just don't make room for nothing. Wait..... Dennis Pitta possibly for long term? Just throwing out ideas.
