Now he'll get the chance with two visits lined up. First, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports that Oher will visit the Tennessee Titans on Friday.

Oher won't stop there. Following the Titans visit, he'll take a trip to Oakland to see what the Raiders have to offer.

Oher has had an up-and-down career in Baltimore. For the most part, he's been a solid right tackle. Sure, he's had his mental lapses that resulted in false starts or missed pass blocking assignments. But all in all, he's played better than the reputation he's earned in Baltimore.
He was instrumental during Baltimore's Super Bowl run in 2012. However, with the Ravens re-signing Eugene Monroe and going after Steve Smith — not to mention the possibility of moving Kelechi Osemele to right tackle — the organization can probably afford to let Oher walk, especially if he makes more money elsewhere than they'd be willing to pay.
Of course, visits don't mean a player is definitely gone. As was the case with Jacoby Jones, if the Ravens make a competitive offer to Oher, he very well could be back in the fold for 2014.
The question now is how much of an effort will the Ravens actually make to bring him back?
