OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens shuffled their defensive line on Tuesday by re-signing veteran…
Leonardo Carson released
According to the Mobile police, a woman told officers that Carson had forcibly entered an apartment, physically assaulted her and forced her into his vehicle. At the time, he was on leave from the team to attend his grandmother's funeral.
A civil suit has since been filed against Carson.
With recent proceedings taking Carson back to Mobile to face his accusers and a past that is checkered, the team felt it was best to cut ties with the defensive tackle. Carson had just two tackles on the season.
The Chargers signed five year veteran NFL defensive tackle Joe Salave'a.
Salave'a, 6-3, 310 pounds, originally entered the league with the Tennessee Titans in 1998 as a fourth-round draft pick (107th overall). He spent four seasons (1998-2001) in Tennessee, playing in 49 regular season and five postseason games. He recorded 76 tackles, five sacks and three passes defensed in regular season action and three tackles in the playoffs.
After being out of football in 2002, Salave'a joined the Baltimore Ravens this year but was released at the end of training camp. He re-signed with Baltimore on Sept. 8 and was inactive for three games, including the Ravens' game against the Chargers on Sept. 21 in San Diego. He was later released by Baltimore on Oct. 7.
The Chargers also released rookie offensive lineman Kevin Breedlove on Tuesday.
