The Baltimore Ravens cut running back Alex Collins, the team announced Friday.

Collins, 24, was arrested after police responded to a report of a auto that had crashed into a tree on the 10000 block of Dolfield Road at about 6:48 a.m.

The NFL team took to twitter to share a short message that Collins, a running back with the Ravens, was waived following his arrest early Friday morning. That is less than a mile from the Ravens' Under Armour Performance Center.

Collins has not yet been formally charged.

Collins, a 2016 fifth-round pick of Seattle, was released after just one season with the Seahawks, but found success in Baltimore, where he rushed for 973 yards and six touchdowns in 2017.

Collins finished his second season with the Ravens with 516 total yards and eight touchdowns. Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Gus Edwards is the team's top running back, and he indicated that the Ravens would add some competition to the position this offseason.

Collins was with the Arkansas Razorbacks from 2013-2015. He became the third player in SEC history to open his career with three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons on the ground, joining former Razorback Darren McFadden and Georgia's Herschel Walker on that list.
