The Baltimore Ravens waived running back Mark Ingram and backup quarterback Robert Griffin III on Tuesday.

In addition, the Ravens parted with defensive back Davontae Harris, wide receiver De'Anthony Thomas (COVID opt-out) and defensive back Tramon Williams.

Ingram implied the news was coming on Monday in a farewell and thank you to the team. The transaction would save $5 million in salary-cap space for Baltimore, which was eliminated from the playoffs last weekend by the Buffalo Bills.

Griffin said via Twitter on Tuesday, "As year 8 comes to a close, I just want to say thank you to my teammates, the fans, @Ravens organization. This season was a trying one with a lot of adversity there were no better people for the job. Honored to be a part of the brotherhood with yal. The best is yet to come."

The 31-year-old Ingram was inactive for the game after slipping behind Gus Edwards and rookie J.K. Dobbins on the depth chart. He rushed for 299 yards and two touchdowns in 2020 -- one year after rushing for 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns and earning his third career Pro Bowl selection.

In 132 career games (87 starts with the Ravens and New Orleans Saints), Ingram has rushed for 7,324 yards and 62 touchdowns. He also has caught 260 passes for 1,895 yards and 10 touchdowns.

New Orleans selected Ingram in the first round (No. 28 overall) out of Alabama in 2011.
