    He's only 5'11", 225 lbs, ran the second slowest 40 for all Safeties back in the 2013 combine (4.75).

    He’s a good safety. Only reason he was released was his cap hit was high and Chuck Clark emerged as their strong safety.

    If healthy, he’s a solid plug and play SS.

    Jefferson had missed just three games over the course of seven seasons before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 5 against Pittsburgh, which caused him to miss nine games. Before the injury, the former undrafted free agent was on pace to eclipse 500 career tackles. He has also contributed 8.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, four interceptions and one touchdown over the course of his career.

    Two different positions.

    Weddle was a FS
    Jefferson was a SS

    Earl came in and replaced Weddle. Chuck Clark played well enough for a new contract and is the cheaper option than Jefferson.

    Clark is 26, on a 3 year, 16 million deal.

    Jefferson is 28, was due 8 million this year and coming off an ACL injury. Ravens fans are sad to see him go. He was a leader to that defense.

    It's going to be a long FA period.

    I would be hesitant. The Ravens defense was great last year, but before he was injured they were terrible ranked 30th through 4 games (they finished 2nd or 3rd).

    Now other than him they also traded for an all pro corner (for a bloody 5th round pick), and 2 new inside linebackers so its hard to say how much of it was on him, but he is getting cut because a 6th round pick in his 3rd year outplayed him and is cheaper.

    Not the Ravens Safety I would have interest in as a FO person with the Cowboys.

    Lol at people saying Jeff Heath is better. No way a single 1 of you has even seen Jefferson play if that’s your opinion. Jefferson is a bonafide starting SS that was a cap casualty because of an unfortunate ACL tear. His replacement was good in his place and the Ravens chose to go the cheaper route...with that said, a guy not known for his speed approaching 30 coming off an ACL is for sure risky, depends on the contract obviously. Wouldn’t invest too much, but if he can be had on a buy low contract I’d definitely kick the tires.

    He's been baller in the NFL none of the test stuff matters. I'm not sure he's way better than Jeff Heath but he is better. Heath may be better in coverage actually.

    Before he got hurt the Ravens had one of the worst defenses in football and routinely gave up big plays. When Clark came in the defense became one of the top 10 defenses in the league and allowed the fewest big plays.
