The Baltimore Ravens decided to part ways with nose tackle Terrence Cody after five seasons as his rookie contract is set to expire.
Cody was selected by the Ravens in the second round but never played a significant role with their defense.
It was initially assumed that the nose tackle was cut due to being expendable, but a report from the Baltimore Sun has come out saying that he is being investigated for animal cruelty.
This is now the likely reason why the Ravens will not move forward with Cody, and the incident allegedly involved a dog. Although it will be hard to top, it remains to be seen whether this situation is as serious as the Michael Vick dog fighting scandal.
