Ravens Cut C Jeremy Zuttah

UPDATE: The Ravens have traded Zuttah to the 49ers.

The Ravens are releasing center Jeremy Zuttah, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com (on Twitter). Zuttah has been a starter for Baltimore for the last three years. "<strong

By cutting Zuttah, the Ravens will save $2.392MM in cap space. They’re also going to need a new center though some of the best options, like new Browns addition J.C. Tretter, are off the board. Veteran Nick Mangold is among the bigger names still available, but he’s not the player he used to be. Multiple teams, reportedly, have asked him to switch positions and that’s not a great sign. Alternatively, the Ravens could fill the void from within by putting John Urschel in the starting role.

Zuttah, 31 in June, started in all 16 games for the Ravens last season. Generally, he has had a pretty good attendance record over the course of his nine-year career with the exception of 2015 when he missed six regular season contests. Last year, Pro Football Focus rated Zuttah as the 13th best center in the NFL. His 82.7 score was his best showing since his rookie season (86.7).

    btw, so that’s now 3/5, (or 60% for u non-math majors), of last year’s starting O-line…which is(was?) supposed 2 b the strength of the team, along w/the D-line, who oh yeah, lost guy…but at least they have kafusi, w.henry, or c.davis 2 replace him…but the O-line doesn’t have that same kind of depth, so again i say…WTGDF OZZIE???!!!

    Jeremy Zuttah is terrible. Glad he was released. If he wasn’t getting pushed in the backfield, he was committing a huge penalty during a long drive. Good riddance.

    i agree he made some mistakes, but he wasn’t constantly getting pushed in2 the backfield…n he’s been ranked b/t 13-17 each of the last 3 years at C…so w/o him, who do they get?

      In Ozzie we trust! I’m sure there’s some old busted former roll tide player he has in mind…
