Ravens release Dennis Pitta (hip)

Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has been released with an injury settlement.

What It Means:

Pitta dislocated his hip for the third time at OTAs last week, and this could very well be the end of the 31-year-old's career.

In 6 NFL seasons (66 games) Pitta has caught 224 passes for 2098 yards and 13 touchdowns. He finished 2016 with 0.37 Reception Net Expected Points per target -- the third-lowest mark among tight ends that saw at least 50 targets on the year.
