Orlando Pace Visiting Baltimore

New, comments

Rumor has it that veteran left tackle and former All Pro from the St. Louis Rams, Orlando Pace will be visiting Baltimore today, as the free agent is pondering his options after spending his entire career in a Rams uniform. Long considered one of the best LT's to play the game during his tenure in the NFL, Pace was injured over the past couple of years and was not re-signed by the Rams.

The Ravens are obviously still in a signing mode in free agency and Pace might be a great pickup if the money is right. While I wouldn't want to stunt the growth of current Ravens LT, Jared Gaither, Pace is still a better LT than Gaither and would be an upgrade for a year or two. Not too sure what that would mean for Willie Anderson, although the thought of Pace on QB Joe Flacco's blind side and Anderson on his right sounds pretty good to me. This way, we would have significant depth with both Gaither and Adam Terry as reserves, as they continue to learn from two of the best at their positions.

Of course, this is still a rumor and just a visit, but we all know what happens with free agents once they walk into the "Castle" as free agents. They usualy walk out as Baltimore Ravens!
