The Ravens decided Monday that both Hayden and James Hurst will not remain with the team moving forward. Although they are no biologically related, the one common denominator is that both Hurst's will no longer be playing in Baltimore.
His versatility and experience helped the offensive line tremendously, but the decision to release Hurst comes down to a variety of factors.
Baltimore will save $2.75 million in cap space and will surely need all the flexibility they can receive. After adding defensive tackles Calais Campbell and Michael Brocker, the Ravens are currently over the salary cap and releasing Hurst will relieve the Ravens financially.
Note that the Ravens have already extended offensive tackle Andre Smith for 2020 and with enough depth already, the Ravens will move into 2020 without Hurst.
