Ravens cut Gorrer to make room for Ihedigbo


Posted Sep 3, 2012


To make room for James Ihedigbo, Baltimore releases CB Danny Gorrer.

To make room for safety James Ihedigbo on the 53-man roster, the Ravens released cornerback Danny Gorrer on Monday. 

Gorrer saw game action in 11 games in 2011, tallying five tackles and four pass deflections. It was a bit of a surprise to see Gorrer go after having a solid preseason with Baltimore.

  But the move was made to ensure safety depth for the upcoming season. 

"24 hrs til I find out where my new home will be!!!! Hurt but thankful, never get comfortable cause we never no in this business!!!!" Gorrer tweeted. 

Gorrer initially made the 53-man roster on Friday for the second season in a row. But being the fifth corner on the roster wasn't enough for him to stick around for the opener. Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown's roles on special teams didn't help Gorrer's case either. 

Ihedigbo and Sean Considine are now the backup safeties on the roster, with rookie Christian Thompson still learning the ropes. Corey Graham is a versatile defensive back, who can play corner as well as safety. 

Safety Bernard Pollard said it was tough to see his teammate go. 

"It's tough, Danny's my boy," Pollard said. "But this is the business side of it. This is the side where if you think things are going well, things can change. We can't control it. One thing I've always been told since I got in this league is you can control the controllables. This one is out of our hands. We know it, we understand it and we have to be ready that if we do get that phone call, that we have to be ready to bounce back."
