The Baltimore Ravens plan to release safety Tony Jefferson, according to The Athletic.
After drafting Kyle Hamilton out of Notre Dame in the first round and signing Marcus Williams, playing time in the Ravens defensive backfield would be at a minimum this season. The Ravens reportedly want to keep Jefferson on the practice squad.
Jefferson played in one game last year after signing to the Ravens practice squad for his second stint with the team. He spent 2017 to 2019 with the Ravens—much of that time as the team’s starting strong safety. The last time Jefferson played a full season was 2017.
The 30 year old signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma in 2013. He has 452 tackles over his career along with 4 interceptions, 9.5 sacks, 1 defensive touchdown and 4 fumble recoveries.
This is a developing story and The 33rd Team will continue to update as more information becomes available.
