The Ravens could be in pursuit of a new safety.
Baltimore reportedly released Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle on Tuesday and now may pursue free agent Tyrann Mathieu, according to a report from CBS Sports.
The free-agent safety is fresh off a one-year deal with Houston, which paid him $7 million. The Texans are also looking to retain the star, according to a Houston Chronicle report.
Texans are making a push to try to retain safety Tyrann Mathieu, including a preliminary contract offer, according to league sources. Fluid situation, but they are doing what they can to keep him. My sense is he wants to remain in Houston, but he will have plenty of offers

Mathieu totaled 89 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions in 2018.
Baltimore finished last season 10-6 and fell to the Chargers, 23-17, in the Wild-Card Round.
