Ravens Sign Former Patriots Lineman

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with former New England Patriots offensive tackle, Mark LeVoir, a five-year veteran, according to BaltimoreRavens.com. LeVoir tried out for the Ravens Saturday, according to a report by Aaron Wilson, and was signed shortly afterwards.

He only started two games over the past three seasons and while the Patriots wanted him back, he refused to take a cut in pay and was therefore released into free agency. The Ravens have been looking for help along the offensive line as their depth has been thought to be the weak link in their revamped offense that has seen them released three starters from 2010 in WR Derrick Mason, TE Todd Heap, and FB Le'Ron McClain. In addition, although tackle Jared Gaither did not play in 2010, he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving the Ravens relatively thin on the line.

The injury to center Matt Birk made them worry that their depth was not where they wanted it to be heading into the regular season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers in only three weeks. LaVoir gives them added depth along the line and if they can get Birk Healthy, they can have a higher level of confidence in protecting QB Joe Flacco.
