The Ravens released CB Chris Carr and WR Lee Evans on Friday. The news was first reported on Thursday.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, Carr was due a $2.5 million base salary and carried a $3.45 million base salary for next season.
Injuries knocked Carr down the depth chart in 2011, and he played in only nine regular-season games. He was a healthy scratch in the team's wild-card round playoff game against Houston. He signed a four-year deal last offseason.
Last season, Carr had 19 tackles and one sack. He has six picks and 24 passes defensed in his career.
The Ravens acquired Evans from the Bills last offseason. In nine games, he had four catches for 74 yards.
"Each year we have to make tough, difficult decisions to manage our roster," said GM Ozzie Newsome. "Chris Carr and Lee Evans were valuable Ravens, and both helped us get to the AFC Championship game and the brink of the Super Bowl last season with the way they played and the maturity they added to the locker room. Chris was instrumental in helping us earn the playoffs the last three seasons.
"As we talked about when we informed Chris and Lee of these moves, this does not close the door on them coming back to the Ravens."
The team also placed RB Ricky Williams on the reserve/retired list. Williams announced his retirement last month.
The Ravens had no news on CB Domonique Foxworth, who is coming off two serious injuries.
