Yesterday the Ravens officially cut cornerback Samari Rolle. It was a move that was good for both Rolle and the Ravens. Rolle told reporters that he felt like he was not wanted in Baltimore anymore. He was plagued with injuries throughout his career, but was well respected in the locker room.

Last week wide receiver Derrick Mason asked the Ravens for a contract extension. The 35-year-old played hurt most of last season, but was Joe Flacco‘s number one target last year.

Today, the Ravens are expected to announce a deal with cornerback Chris Carr for 2-years and $5 million. Carr is a 25-year-old free agent from Tennessee and will most likely be the Ravens kick returner in 2009.

The Ravens also cut linebacker Nick Greisen three days ago. Without him the Ravens still have four inside linebackers. The move will save the team saves $716,000.

As a side note, the Rams released wide receiver Torry Holt. Many expect the Ravens to be a front runner for Holt, though I expect them to draft a wide receiver.
