Ravens release WR Sanders



OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens released wide receiver Frank Sanders on Tuesday.

Sanders had 14 catches for 170 yards and no touchdowns during an injury-plagued 2003 season. He signed a four-year contract with Baltimore as a free agent following an eight-year stint with the Arizona Cardinals.

He became expendable after the Ravens drafted three receivers over the weekend and acquired Kevin Johnson in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
