Michael Oher signs four-year deal with the Titans

Moves him to home state of Tennessee.

Michael Oher had a solid run in Baltimore.

He got to start at both left and right tackle, he helped pave the way for Ray Rice to some successful rushing seasons and he was a part of the Super Bowl XLVII champions.

But the Ravens weren't going to pay him $20 million over four years, with $9.5 million of that guaranteed.

On Friday, that was exactly the contract he received from the Tennessee Titans, which he accepted and signed.



Oher will return to his home state of Tennessee, though Nashville is about three hours from his hometown of Memphis.

Oher's departure leaves the Ravens with position to fill at right tackle. That could either be done through the draft, or with Kelechi Osemele and Rick Wagner entering into the mix.

Oher becomes the third Raven from the 2013 roster to leave via free agency this offseason. Corey Graham signed a new deal with the Bills and Arthur Jones inked a new contract with the Colts. One silver lining is that those three departures give the Ravens three compensatory picks for the 2015 NFL draft.
