This was revealed by his former teammate Jamal Lewis to TMZ Sports.
« I have to say it’s a sad day to be a Raven, » the former running back said Wednesday.

The New Jersey native was hired by the Ravens through the free agent market in 1997, after spending the first seven seasons of his NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts.
As part of the Baltimore roster, Siragusa was a mainstay of one of the best defenses in league history. In 2000, the Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV and the defensive unit set the record for the fewest points allowed in the regular season (165).
After his playing career, the man nicknamed “Goose” delighted fans with his unique analyzes by serving as a field journalist during the broadcast of NFL games on the Fox network.
