Baltimore Ravens to Release Safety

The Baltimore Ravens are clearing the way for their new safeties. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team plans to release Tony Jefferson:

Jefferson was competing with new additions Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams for snaps in a crowded Ravens defensive back room, but given the resources the team committed to those two players, Jefferson was a long shot to see meaningful time on the field. The Ravens made Williams one of the highest-paid safeties in the league this past free agency and drafted Hamilton 14th overall in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Jefferson leaves the Ravens having only appeared in 11 games over the past two seasons. As teams continue to trim their rosters before Tuesday's 53-man cutdown deadline, he'll be one of many veterans competing for spots across the league heading into the regular season.
