On Monday, the same day that he was released from the Ravens after five years with the team that drafted him, a Baltimore grand jury indicted Cody on multiple counts of animal cruelty towards his dead dog, as well as possession of marijuana and the illegal possession and neglect of an alligator. The Baltimore Sun reported that Cody was indicted on 15 total charges.
Cody reportedly turned himself into police custody and paid the $10,000 bail.
A 2nd round draft pick out of Alabama in 2010, Cody has played in 57 career games at the NT position, with 21 career starts. He has no career sacks but started all 16 games in 2011, recording 39 tackles that season.
Cody’s contract was due to expire at the conclusion of the 2014 season, but in a year where the Ravens have had so many PR problems stemming from the Ray Rice incident, the team decided to just release him.
