The Baltimore Ravens have cut ties with nose tackle Terrence Cody since being eliminated from the playoffs, which occurred in heartbreaking fashion against the New England Patriots.
The Ravens lost, 35-31, after blowing a 14-point lead as the defense broke down and allowed quarterback Tom Brady to torch them.
Cody has been notorious for his massive weight, and he entered the draft with weight concerns as he weighed in at 370 pounds at the Senior Bowl. Cody currently weighs 345 pounds.
He was released for becoming expendable though despite being drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft. He played just one game this season after recovering from hip surgery.
Since Cody is still 26, he may be able to still find work as a 3-4 nose tackle, which he played in Baltimore.
