Report: Ravens to release Woodhead for cap reasons
BALTIMORE, MD - DECEMBER 23: Running Back Danny Woodhead #39 of the Baltimore Ravens catches the ball in the fourth quarter against the Indianapolis Colts at M&T Bank Stadium on December 23, 2017 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Baltimore Ravens will release running back Danny Woodhead due to salary-cap constraints, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Woodhead carried cap numbers of $3.3 million for 2018 and $3.75 million for 2019, according to Over The Cap. Cutting him now saves $1.8 million against the cap next season.

The 33-year-old was signed to a three-year, $8.8-million contract last offseason. He played just eight games in his one season with the Ravens, spending time on the injured reserve due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1.

He finished the season with 14 carries for 56 yards and no touchdowns, adding 33 receptions for 200 yards.

His release leaves Alex Collins and Javorius Allen as the lead backs in Baltimore's backfield.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
