American football strong safety Tony Lemar Jefferson Jr. (born January 27, 1992) is currently a free agent. He attended Oklahoma University and in 2013 became an undrafted free agent for the Arizona Cardinals football team.
The older players of the Baltimore Ravens are responsible for both sound football and the mentoring of the team’s younger players. It’s likely that not all of Baltimore’s established core of veteran contributors who can provide quality snaps will make the cut before rosters must be finalized on Tuesday, August 30 at 4 p.m. EST.
On Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Ravens are going to cut safety Tony Jefferson II. After being re-signed by Baltimore in the middle of the 2021 season, the veteran finished the year strong.

According to reliable sources, the Ravens want to let safety Tony Jefferson go. Since Baltimore chose Kyle Hamilton in the first round and added former Saints star Marcus Williams, Jefferson, who had a terrific preseason with 9 tackles in one half on Saturday against Washington, has less playing time.

According to reports, the Ravens are likely to let safety Tony Jefferson go. Jefferson had a good preseason, making 9 tackles in one half on Saturday against Washington, but his opportunities have diminished since Baltimore chose Kyle Hamilton in the first round and added former Saints star, Marcus Williams.
Jefferson has decided to skip his senior year in order to focus on the 2013 NFL Draft. ESPN had Jefferson as the fifth-best safety prospect in the draft before the NFL Combine. He was present at the NFL Scouting Combine among 20 other safeties. He got through most of the activities at the combine, but his ability to run was severely hampered by a hamstring injury he suffered there.
He ran the 40-yard dash in a time that was 17th-slowest out of the 18 safeties who took part. Although Jefferson attended Oklahoma’s pro day on March 18, 2013, he was limited to merely running the short shuttle and three-cone drill due to a hamstring ailment.
WalterFootball.com published a scouting report claiming to have heard from credible sources that he had bad practice habits and an attitude, but the report was swiftly discarded after his teammates and the Oklahoma coaching staff disputed the charges. The site eventually changed its mind about the claims. NFL scouts and experts said he may go as high as the fifth round but as low as the second or third.
