Terrance West's Run In Baltimore Appears To Have Come To An End


By Bo Smolka, PRESSBOX

The story of Baltimore native and Towson University star Terrance West winning the starting running back job for his hometown Ravens was a heartwarming one, but there might not be a happy ending. After a season in which West went from Week 1 starter to perpetual fourth-string bench-warmer, West is set to be a free agent and seems to recognize that his NFL future likely lies elsewhere.

As he cleaned out his locker at the team's Owings Mills, Md., complex Jan. 1 after the team's stunning, season-ending loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, West acknowledged that it "hurt" the way his role this season was essentially reduced to that of a practice squad player.

West, who turns 27 this month, won an underwhelming competition for the starting job during the preseason. But the emergence of Alex Collins -- signed to the Ravens' practice squad after he was among the Seattle Seahawks' final cuts -- completely changed the dynamic of the Ravens' backfield.
