Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2009-03-20
--Samari Rolle, a four-year starting cornerback for the Ravens, was granted his release by the Ravens after the team signed Chris Carr.


Rolle, 32, envisioned a diminished role after the team signed Domonique Foxworth on the first day of free agency.

"Everyone got what they wanted out of this," Rolle said. "I wish the Ravens nothing but the best of luck."

--The Ravens released backup inside linebacker Nick Greisen after two seasons.

Greisen, 29, made just five tackles on defense last season, 33 fewer than the season before. He finished fifth on the team with 12 special teams tackles last season. His release comes one year after he signed a three-year, $4 million contract with the Ravens (which included a $1 million signing bonus). The Ravens saved $716,000 in salary cap space.

--Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti attended Ray Lewis press conference even though it took place in the middle of Maryland's NCAA first-round game against California. Bisciotti is known as one of the Terps' biggest supporters.

--Ravens linebackers Brendon Ayanbadejo and Jameel McClain will team up Thursday with other NFL players and members of Congress in lobbying for the FIT Kids Act, which would put a greater priority on physical education in schools.

--Ravens offensive line coach John Matsko attended McNeese State's pro day, where he watched offensive tackle Kyle Link. Expected to be drafted in the sixth or seventh round, Link had an unimpressive showing, according to NFL.com.

--The Ravens' 2009 home opponents are: the three AFC North teams (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland), Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Kansas City and Indianapolis. Their road opponents are: the three AFC North teams (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland), Green Bay, Minnesota, San Diego, Oakland and New England.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "When we talk about the type of person we want as a Raven, we talk about a player like Samari. He's smart, tough, works hard and made us a better team. When you talk about a player having courage, you point to Samari and what he has fought through the last few years. He's a special guy. There will be other teams who will make a run at him now, but we have not closed the door on bringing him back to the Ravens at some point." -- General manager Ozzie Newsome on the release of cornerback Samari Rolle.
