The Ravens released veteran DE Trevor Pryce on Wednesday and re-signed S Ken Hamlin.

Pryce, a four-time Pro Bowler, signed with Baltimore in 2006 after playing nine seasons with the Broncos. He led the Ravens in sacks last season with 6½, despite losing his starting spot midway through the year.

According to Baltimore Sun writer and PFW Ravens correspondent Jamison Hensley, the timing of Pryce's release is somewhat surprising considering that DE Cory Redding is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers because of a recent concussion. However, the writing may have been on the wall for Pryce when the Ravens replaced Redding in last week's game with Brandon McKinney, not Pryce.

The way we see it

Pryce lasted longer in Baltimore than many believed he would. After losing his starting job a year ago, Pryce was in danger of being cut in the offseason because of a bloated base salary. He agreed to take a paycut from $4.5 million to $2 million for this season.
