The Baltimore Ravens announced today that they have released defensive backs CB Shareece Wright and FS Kendrick Lewis. Wright and Lewis were veteran defensive backs that struggled last season.
Lewis signed with the Ravens prior to the 2015 season and played in only six games last season for the Ravens. Lewis finished the season on injured reserve and never recorded an interception for the Ravens. Lewis is a good tackler but lost his position when the Ravens signed Eric Weddle.
Wright signed a three-year contract extension with the Ravens last year but again struggled. Wright had 92 tackles for the Ravens in 23 games over the past two seasons.
The Ravens need salary cap space and these two cuts will provide a little more room for the Ravens. Wright and Lewis are two guys the Ravens can replace in the draft or free agency.
