On the same day that the Jaguars released a first-round pick from the 1998 draft, the Ravens have done the same thing, albeit with less fanfare, to a first-rounder from the following year.
Per a league source, the Ravens have parted ways with cornerback Chris McAlister.
The move comes as little surprise, given that McAlister was due to earn base salaries of $8 million in each of the next three seasons.
McAlister played in only six games last season before hearing to the injured reserve list. He was benched at one point by coach John Harbaugh after violating the team’s dress code.
The ten-year veteran was the first draft choice of the Brian Billick era.
