Ravens Release RB Alex Collins Following Friday Arrest Near Teams Facility

The Ravens today dumped one-time starting running back Alex Collins after he was arrested following a morning car crash in Owings Mills.

The 24-year-old was set to be a restricted free agent before his release, but now if he is not claimed, he will immediately become a free agent.

“We have spoken to the police and are aware of the situation,” the Ravens told NFL.com in a statement on Friday morning.

Baltimore County police responded to a report of a car that had crashed into a tree about 6:48 a.m., police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Peach said. The location is approximately a mile from the team facility.

Collins put up 516 total yards and eight touchdowns in 2018, his second year in Baltimore, splitting time in the backfield with Gus Edwards, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon.

The running back finished the season on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in late October.

As of now it’s not known if Collins was driving the car that crashed.
