Ravens Dump 10-Year Vet Chris McAllister
Posted by Matt Loede on February 16th, 2009 in News

The Ravens today released cornerback Chris McAlister, a player that fell out of favor with new coach John Harbaugh and ended the season on IR after starting the first five games of the season. The 10-year veteran was also a three-time Pro Bowler, and was also a part of the Ravens Super Bowl winning team in 2001.

The 31-year-old ranks third on the Ravens’ career list with 26 interceptions and scored seven touchdowns for Baltimore—including a 107-yard return of a missed field goal. McAllister was put on IR on November 11th due to a right knee injury, but by then, there were plenty of stories about his issues with coach Harbaugh, and how he was in the coaches doghouse.

McAlister finished the season with three interceptions and 19 tackles. He was due to make $8 million this year. “We want to thank Chris for all he did for the Ravens in the past 10 years,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said. “He was a major contributor to many big wins, including the Super Bowl.”

well, this sounds good. But, well have to wait and see if this pans out. Not jumping up and down yet.

I like the pick up. But this is a wait and see. Approach with caution.

McCalister was a stud when he was with the Ravens pre-HC Harbaugh.
This signing has GW written all over it.
Dude isn't that old. If he can get some of the Raven studliness back for 5-6 games until Porter comes back, that'll do it.
