Ravens release LB Ayanbadejo

The SportsXchange

Veteran linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was released by the Baltimore Ravens.

The 10-year veteran is primarily a special teams player. He turns 37 before the start of next season.

His minimum salary given his total years of NFL service will be more than $900,000 next season. Because he doesn't play in the base defense, Ayanbadejo might be pressed to find work in a role that typically is filled by younger and much cheaper backup defensive players.

He has played for the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent from UCLA.

Ayandadejo might be best known for his support of same-sex marriage, a campaign he has taken public along with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe.
