Dallas Cowboys Guard Ronald Leary requesting a trade, Baltimore an option?

During the 2013 and 2014 seasons the Dallas Cowboys clearly re-built the entire offensive line to dominating prowess. People were nicknaming the second coming of, "The Great Wall of Dallas". Big names to be a part of the line were Tyron Smith & Travis Frederick. Another player that was a part of the last two seasons, Ronald Leary OG. Back in 2012 Leary signed as a prized UDFA and produced top end talent.

With 2016 underway, the Cowboys met for OTA's and Leary was nowhere to be found. In fact, he is rumored to be requesting a trade.

Big reasoning for the trade request is another UDFA taking his job during the 2015 campaign. La'el Collins snatched up the gig, and with no end in site to his blocking skills will Collins be leaving.

Would Baltimore be a landing spot for Leary? The quick response is no, but another top talent guard with a $2.5 million cap hit isn't bad in the slightest.

The Ravens lost a top five offensive guard as Kelechi Osemele signed with the Oakland Raiders. The replacement as of now looks somewhat of a shuffle. Eugene Monroe back healthy (for the time being) slides him in the starting role of LT. Ronnie Stanley will presumably take snaps at left guard, getting his feet wet in the NFL. Zuttah or Urschel will be the starting center, and the right side is obviously locked up by Marshal Yanda and Ricky Wagner. But, this could all be shifted around with a trade for Ronald Leary.

Stanley, if capable of becoming an NFL tackle from the get-go could mean Eugene is gone, and Ronald Leary takes over the open LG spot.

In the bigger picture it wouldn't make sense, as the Ravens are a team that builds from within the roster. The Ravens would only be offering very low picks or players, and Dallas wants a sizeable return. Ozzie won't be making any true phone calls.
