The Baltimore Ravens gave up the Alex Collins race Friday afternoon, a few hours after his arrest after a car accident in Owings Mills, Maryland.
Police responded to a call about a car accident on Dolfield Road at 6:48 am local time. The location was about a mile from Crows facilities. During his investigation of the accident, Collins was placed under arrest as a suspect, confirmed the Baltimore County Police at NFL.com.
No additional information will be available until Collins, 24, is formally charged, which is expected to take place on Friday afternoon, the police added.
"We spoke to the police and are aware of the situation," the Ravens told NFL.com in a statement Friday morning. By 4 pm local time, Baltimore had given up Collins.
Restricted free agent before his release, Collins will now be subject to waivers. If he is not claimed, he will immediately become a free agent.
Collins totaled 516 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 2018, his second year in Baltimore, sharing the same time in the background with teammates Gus Edwards, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. The Ravens rider finished the season on a reserve after being injured at the end of October.
Collins begins his fourth season in the league.
