By Marc A. Greenberg

The season hasn’t even started yet and already the New York Jets received some good news.

The Baltimore Ravens have cut ties with RB Willis McGahee, TE Todd Heap and WR Derrick Mason, head coach John Harbaugh confirmed Tuesday.

“It’s just the reality of the salary cap,” Harbaugh said. “It’s the situation we’re in now, and going forward we’ve got to try to make the best team we can.”

Jets killer Heap is the Ravens’ all-time leader in receiving touchdowns (41) and ranks second in receptions (467) and career receiving yards (5,492).

The Jets visit the Ravens on October 2 (Week 4).
