The Sergio Kindle project has ended.
The Ravens cut Kindle from their practice squad Monday, ending a three-year period where their second-round pick in 2010 never really got his career going.
Kindle was the team's top pick in 2010 and nothing went right from the start.
He fractured his skull when falling down the steps before training camp in 2010. Kindle missed all of 2010, made it back last year but struggled and played in just two games.
He fared better in training camp and pre-season in 2012, doing well at times, but made it into just one regular-season game. The Ravens then moved him to the practice squad when Terrell Suggs was ready to return in October.
Coach John Harbaugh clearly felt sympathy for Kindle, who went through a very difficult situation from start to finish with the Ravens.
"I feel some responsibility for him and really want to see him do well," Harbaugh said when speaking to the media on Monday. "I really think he has a chance to be good in this league. Just in the future, we’ll be there. I’ll be there to support him and do whatever we can to help him. He’s hoping for an opportunity somewhere where he can maybe take the next step.”
