Ravens terminate contract of LB Ayanbadejo
By Associated Press

The Baltimore Ravens have terminated the contract of reserve linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, a three-time Pro Bowler on special teams.

Ayanbadejo has played 10 seasons in the NFL, the last five with Baltimore. He started four games at linebacker for the Ravens, but his main contribution was on special teams.

General manager Ozzie Newsome announced the move Thursday.

Ayanbadejo has been an open proponent for gay marriage, a stance he reiterated in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.

The 36-year-old Ayanbadejo had a career-high 30 tackles from scrimmage last season for the Super Bowl champions. He also had a sack and 14 stops on special teams.

He made the Pro Bowl on special teams in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Ayanbadejo started his career with Miami in 2003.
