It's roster cut-down day in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens, as a result, are trimming down on players. According to a report, one of those players is veteran quarterback Brett Hundley. 

The Ravens are reportedly cutting veteran quarterback Brett Hundley. The leaves the AFC North franchise with three quarterbacks: Lamar Jackson, Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown. 

It was previously believed Hundley would make it further into Baltimore's camp and that Brown, the former Oregon quarterback, would be the first quarterback cut. However, the undrafted prospect performed well in the Ravens' recent preseason game and is now getting another opportunity. Hundley, meanwhile, is now a free agent. 

"Ravens cut quarterback Brett Hundley, per a league source," said Aaron Wilson.

Hundley was recently demoted to the Ravens' No. 4 quarterback behind Anthony Brown. He was also not present at practice this Tuesday, indicating the Ravens are releasing him as previously reported. 

"QB Brett Hundley is not present at Tuesday’s practice for Ravens. Baltimore has to cut down its roster to 85 players by 4PM today. Hundley has been the No. 4 QB behind Lamar Jackson, Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown," said Jamison Hensley. 

In the Ravens' preseason opener last weekend, Tyler Huntley got the start and threw for 109 yards and one touchdown. Anthony Brown was second in line at quarterback and completed 10 of his 15 attempts for 117 yards. Hundley threw just two passes for 42 yards. 

Brown and Huntley will continue competing for Baltimore's backup quarterback role. Huntley is expected to win the job.
