The Ravens have decided to terminate the contract of Bobbie Williams, the team announced.
Looking to find a steady replacement for departed left guard Ben Grubbs, the Ravens signed the veteran guard before the 2012 season. He made six starts and played in 12 games, but was a reserve during the playoffs.
Williams, who turned 36 in September, signed a two-year, $2.925 million contract last spring that included an $800,000 signing bonus. By terminating his contract, the Ravens will free up $800,000 in salary cap space.
Free agency begins in four days, and the Ravens has 12 unrestricted free agents, led by linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe.
Williams had said he hoped to return to the team in 2013.
