Ravens Have Options At Guard

New, comments

Even if former Baltimore Ravens right guard Ben Grubbs has not signed a new contract by the time you read this, it is still virtually a certainty that he will not be returning to Baltimore unless it is in a visiting team's uniform. However, the Ravens are already on the move looking for his replacement and could have a variety of free agency options that could seamlessly fill the void, while still considering moving a current player such as Jah Reid, over to that spot.

Former Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis is visiting the Ravens today and it is entirely possible that he leaves Owings Mills after signing a contract. The Seattle Seahawks have just released veteran guard Robert Gallery, who was the second overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns just announced that they will be releasing veteran guard Eric Steinbach, who was a second round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2003 NFL Draft.

All three of these guys are age 30 or over and while the team may still draft a guard for the future, these players are all solid veterans who could immediately get up to speed and help the Ravens continue to open holes for RB Ray Rice and protect QB Joe Flacco for another run at the Super Bowl.
