The Ravens resigned left tackle Eugene Monroe, who was acquired in a midseason trade from the Jaguars. He started in place of Bryant McKinnie during the final 11 regular season games. Looking at the offensive line with Marshal Yanda, Kalechi Osemele, and Monroe, they still need more bodies to protect the franchise’s $120.6M Quarterback Joe Flacco.
General Manager Ozzie Newsome remained open minded about Monroe returning to the team because he is well aware that Tuesday marked the beginning of free agency and if a better offer was on the table he might have to take his talent elsewhere. Monroe was overjoyed about his new five-year contract worth $7.5M each year, rounding out at $37.5M after the completion of the 2019 season.
