BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The same day that Eric Weddle signed his contract, the Ravens released Will Hill.

This decision comes about eight months after the Ravens gave Hill a reported two-year, $7 million extension. Releasing Hill roughly frees up a reported $3 million in salary-cap space, more than releasing other safeties would have freed up.
