Ravens Cut Former Bama DL Terrence Cody Amid Animal Cruelty Investigation
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) – The Baltimore Ravens intend to cut ties with defensive tackle Terrence Cody, who’s under investigation for animal cruelty.
The Ravens made no reference to the investigation Friday, when it issued a one-sentence news release that said Cody’s contract will be terminated after the Super Bowl.
The 26-year-old Cody is the subject of an investigation launched by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s office.
A Baltimore County police official says no charges have been filed, and that the investigation is ongoing.
Cody missed the first 12 games of the 2014 season following hip surgery. He was activated on Nov. 4 but played in only one game, seeing limited action in Miami on Dec. 7.
His one-year, $730,000 contract was set to expire in March. Cody will then become an unrestricted free agent.
