BALTIMORE, MD. (KAIT) - Former ASU star Cleo Lemon was cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday. NFL teams are making the final cuts to their rosters, and Lemon who just signed with the Ravens a few weeks ago, was let go as the Ravens trim the roster to make the league requirement of 53 players by September 5th.
Lemon was a four-year letterman (1997-2000) at Arkansas State, where he played in 42 games during his career. In his four seasons, Lemon completed 551 of 1,128 passes for 7,706 yards with 48 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. He is the school's all-time leader for pass attempts, completions, passing yards and touchdown passes.
Lemon's most productive season came as a sophomore in 1998 when he completed 183 of 387 passes for 2,721 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was the only quarterback in school history to pass for over 400 yards in a game (403), a record broken by Nick Noce, who passed for 418 yards against Memphis on September 18, 2004.
Lemon's pro career has included stops with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars.
