The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of vested veteran G Bobbie Williams Friday afternoon, executive vice president/general manager Ozzie Newsome announced.
"We were fortunate to have a man like Bobbie Williams on the Ravens last season," Newsome stated. "His contributions and significance to the team went far beyond his play on the field – and he responded on the field every time we called him. Bobbie is first-class in every way. You could not find anyone from the Ravens who got to know him this year who would say anything but good things about Bobbie. We thank him for helping us win the championship."
"Bobbie was a bigger part of the puzzle to win the Super Bowl than most people know," head coach John Harbaugh said. "This is an outstanding person, and we loved having him on the Ravens. His maturity, leadership, practice habits and the way he played were all impressive for us. To come in here for one season and fit the way he did says a lot about him. We are all better for having Bobbie on the Ravens for a season."
Williams played 13 years in the NFL, including last season with the Ravens, seeing action in 13 regular season games (including six starts) and all four postseason contests.
