Ravens expected to trade or cut LT Eugene Monroe

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

After not arriving to mandatory mini-camp, the Baltimore Ravens are expected to be done with Eugene Monroe.

Over the past two seasons Eugene Monroe and the Ravens have experienced difficulties. Injuries have forced Monroe to the sideline, and leaving Joe Flacco with back-up left tackles to protect him. It hasn't worked well, with Flacco sustaining an ACL tear during the 2015-2016 season.

Baltimore traded for Eugene Monroe in 2013, giving fourth- and fifth-round draft selections in the 2014 NFL draft. On March 11, 2014 the Ravens re-signed the left tackle to a five-year, $37.5m deal. That same year, on September 24, Monroe underwent knee surgery, taking 3-4 weeks to recover.

The next season didn't go as planned with Monroe and Baltimore, after a game one injury sidelined Eugene once more. He was eventually placed on injured reserve December 12, 2015.

With Monroe not arriving for camp it looks as if things may have turned sour. And more tweets have come in discussing his absence today may mean departure soon.
