Ravens Cut CB Victor Hampton


The Ravens have cut cornerback Victor Hampton, who was arrested over the weekend on charges of driving while impaired.

Hampton, 22, was reportedly traveling at 100 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was charged with speeding, reckless driving and open container violations.

The two passengers in Hampton's car were also cited for carrying concealed weapons.

The Ravens signed Hampton to a reserve/future contract in January, but he never played a game or even practiced with the team. Hampton went undrafted out of South Carolina last year and spent part of the season with the New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals.

The Ravens made it clear going into the offseason that they would low tolerance for players getting into trouble off the field.

"It's a privilege to play in the National Football League. It's a privilege to be a part of the Ravens," Head Coach John Harbaugh said after the season. "There's a standard to uphold there, and we expect them to [do that]. We've always expected them to do that. But I would think that it will be a little bit shorter leeway, maybe than it's been in the past."
