Ravens: Ravens cutting Chris Carr

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens are cutting veteran cornerback Chris Carr.

Carr was due a $2.5 million base salary and carried a $3.45 million salary-cap figure for next season.

He signed a three-year, $14 million contract last year that included a $3.8 million signing bonus.

He was due base salaries of $3 million and $4 million in 2013 and 2014.

Carr dealt with a back injury that limited him to nine games last season after starting every game the previous year.

His production dipped from 67 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass deflections and three forced fumbles in 2010.

Last season, he started one game and recorded 19 tackles, one sack, three pass deflections and no interceptions.

The Ravens are also expected to cut cornerback Domonique Foxworth and wide receiver Lee Evans.

Foxworth spent most of the season on injured reserve and has a surgically repaired knee that might end his NFL career.

Under his $27 million contract, Foxworth is due a $5.6 million base salary and an $8.6 million salary-cap figure for next season.

His release isn't regarded as imminent, but is expected before free agency begins on March 13.

Evans dropped a potential game-winning touchdown pass in the AFC championship game against the New England Patriots.

He's due a $3.275 million base salary and carries a $5.607 million salary-cap figure. And a $1 million roster bonus is due March 18 if he's still on the team.

He caught only four passes for 74 yards and no touchdowns during the regular season after being acquired via a trade from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.
