Ravens release linebacker Jake Ryan weeks after signing him

Ryan's release is a bit of a surprise, but more proof of Baltimore's confidence in her young linebacking corps.
The Ravens used their selection in the first round in April in the NFL Draft for Patrick Queen from LSU, who many experts considered the best linebacker in the class. A day later, Baltimore added Ohio State LB Malik Harrison, who was one of the most productive Buckeye linebackers in program history.
Both Queen and Harrison are expected to play a significant role as newcomers to Baltimore. Head coach John Harbaugh said this last week.
"These two guys will be walking around these two linebacker spots, both base and sub, and we'll see how much time they deserve," said Harbaugh. "We expect them to play a lot of football this year. We are really excited about these two boys."

Ryan, who played 43 out of 48 possible games for the Green Bay Packers from 2015 to 2017, has been seriously injured in the past two seasons. The linebacker missed the entire 2018 season with a torn ACL and played in just two competitions for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019, mainly as a specialty teammate.
