The Baltimore Ravens have surprisingly cut offensive guard Alex Lewis.

Lewis, a 2016 fourth-round pick who started 10 games, was expected to compete at Baltimore's left guard spot.

He's missed a total of 28 games over three seasons.

Two days after passing his physical, Lewis said he is no longer in the Ravens' plans.

"It has been a memorable three years," Lewis posted on Instagram. "Appreciate all my teammates and coaches I have met along this way. Unfortunately, I was released today. Thank you Baltimore. As one door closes another opens."
