Ravens Waive Five Players, Including Murphy Holloway

Posted May 7, 2013

Baltimore cut ties with four rookie free agents after rookie minicamp.


The Ravens cut four rookie free agents and another first-year player Tuesday, two days after their opening rookie minicamp.

Among the cuts is tight end Murphy Holloway, the Ole Miss basketball player who hadn’t played football since his sophomore year of high school. Holloway was an intriguing prospect because of his athleticism, but had a long ways to go.

“It’s a tough adjustment,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. “It’s different playing basketball and playing football.”

The Ravens cut three other rookie free agents: quarterback Nathan Stanley (Southeast Louisiana), running back Ray Holley (Louisiana Tech) and cornerback Jose Cheeseborough (Florida International).

The Ravens cut defensive tackle Swanson Miller, who the team first signed in early February. Miller had previously been with the New Orleans Saints, but has yet to see any game action.

Holloway tweeted about the crossroads in his life Monday morning, saying he had some "life changing decisions" in the coming days. He decided he'll go back to trying basketball.
