BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Ravens have terminated the contract of tight end Dennis Pitta.
Pitta re-injured his hip during an OTA practice last week on a no contact play.
According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, doctors confirmed that it’s a dislocated hip. Pitta first dislocated and fractured his hip during training camp practice in 2013 and then again in Week 3 of the 2014 season.
After almost two years away from football, Pitta returned last season and led all NFL tight ends in receptions (86).
The Ravens gain $2.5 million in salary-cap space with Pitta’s release, per ESPN.
