Danny Woodhead Reportedly Released by Ravens After 1 Season with Team

Danny Woodhead: Baltimore Ravens release veteran RB

The Baltimore Ravens will not pick up the option for right tackle Austin Howard, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He finished 2010-11 with a single-season career-high 545 yards rushing, including five touchdowns on the ground. He has now played eight or fewer games in three of the last four seasons. Baltimore signed Woodhead to a three-year, $8.8 million deal, reportedly beating out the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers for him.

In the last two seasons he has played all 16 games Woodhead had 76 (2013) and 81 receptions (2015), with six receiving touchdowns in each, and he averaged over four catches per game previous year. That's when he aggravated a hamstring injury and was eventually placed on injured reserve.

Howard, 30, struggled early last season after getting a late start with his new team and having to work himself into better shape following an offseason spent rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

The Ravens have the options of moving Hurst or projected starting left guard Alex Lewis to right tackle although coach John Harbaugh has said in the past that they'd prefer leaving Lewis at guard.


Woodhead was only set to make a little over $2.5 million this year, and the Ravens will only clear $1.8 million in salary cap space by cutting him.

Like Woodhead, Howard is gone after one season with Baltimore. The Ravens, though, may have to fill openings at center and right tackle.

The Ravens entered this week ranking among the teams with the least amount of cap room.
