The Ravens terminated the contract of CB Samari Rolle on Tuesday. Rolle missed the 2009 season with a neck injury.

Rolle, 33, joined Baltimore in 2005 after seven seasons with Tennessee. He made 47 starts for Baltimore, intercepting nine passes.

Injuries limited Rolle in the latter stages of his Ravens career. He missed 10 games in 2007 because of a reaction to medication he took for epilepsy and a shoulder injury.  Also, he missed six games in 2008 because of shoulder and neck injuries. However, he started 12 games in '08, including postseason wins at Miami and Tennessee.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh praised Rolle on Wednesday for "the way he carried himself and the way he handled adversity, the way he fought through the medical issues, the injuries, the way he played at the end of the (2008) season and the playoff run when he came back and just played great for us through all that stuff — I think that speaks to him."
