No surprises here.

 

The #Ravens will release fullback Vonta Leach and LB Jameel McClain, per sources. Not official but should be soon

 

League source confirms Jameel McClain has been informed of his pending release, they want to sign him back

Sad but expected. Love the leadership and hard-nose play both of them bring/brought.

Also, this saves $4.95M.  For 2 guys that aren't long term pieces, this is the move to make.

Good move especially considering it gives us nearly $25 million in cap space.

Sounds like McClain could be back at a reduced price, but Leach is most likely gone for good.

Ryan: Jameel McClain said the news is fresh to him, but he said the team wants him back. Said "the story's not finished."

Considering the timing, I would expect this move is to free up money for Monroe or Pitta before they hit the open market.

 

In some games last year Leach was only used in a couple of snaps, so it doesn't make sense to keep him.

You sure it's not $27 million? John Clayton said the cap should be at least $132 million, if not more (could get up to, but will not exceed $135).

It's a good move, I feel bad for Vonta though. This is the second time in two years we have cut him, and he really is a great player, but was just not being used enough for the price tag. Also a shame, we could not reunite him with Kubiak as I feel he would have been excited for.

Ravens are currently at $106.4M on the cap with these moves.  We can't really project cap space as no one know what the cap is, but it's at least ~$20M or so based on the low number of $126.3M.

Imagine if it did hit $135 million. Could you imagine Ozzie with $30 million in cap space to play with?
