Ravens' Oniel Cousins Wants RT Position

Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Oniel Cousins is rarely mentioned in the battle to see who will be the team's starting right tackle in 2011. Usually the talk has been between re-signing Jared Gaither and rookie 3rd round draft pick, Jah Reid (Central Florida). Also in the mix could be 2010 NFL Draft pick Ramon Harewood, who was injured and missed all of the 2010 season.

However, Cousins has no plans to simply concede the position to one of the aforementioned players, according to a story on Football News Now. Cousins has played a reserve role since he came to the team and his biggest memories have been the number of penalties and fights he has gotten into, both in games as well as at Training Camp.

The Ravens would like to see one of these players step up and take hold of the position, which has been an issue that has contributed to the offensive line being the biggest obstacle to this offense opening up and scoring a lot of points. Their lack of pass protection as well as failures to consistently open holes for the running game in 2010 needs t be addressed and the solving of the right tackle position will be the best way to settle it.
