The Baltimore Ravens have told running back Willis McGahee they will release him when the league calendar permits it, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. With the lockout over, the league has set a 4 p.m. ET deadline on Thursday for players to be cut or waived. This really should not come as a shock to Ravens fans or others in the league.
Ray Rice is now the feature back in the Ravens offense and McGahee was not getting the type of carries he needs to be effective. I am sure he will hook on with another club once he is released. This is something that we will see more of as Thursday arrives and teams start trimming the fat from their rosters.
