According to Ian Rapoport, the Baltimore Ravens have traded for Jaguars center Luke Bowanko, in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick. The Annapolis native and Virginia product has started 14 games for the Jaguars, since being drafted in 2014.
The trade comes a day after the Ravens acquired offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom, from the Arizona Cardinals, for a conditional draft pick. As Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Zrebiec has noted, this could mean the end for Bergstrom. If the Ravens elect to cut him, they would, in all likelihood, retain the pick they sent to Arizona.
Ravens traded a conditional pick for Tony Bergstrom. So if they immediately cut him, they won't be giving Cardinals a pick.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) September 2, 2017
With questions swirling around the offensive line, the Ravens are doing due dilligence as teams make their roster cuts. Bowanko is the third of three players, including Jeremy Zuttah and Bergstrom, that the Ravens have brought in to compete for a spot along the offensive line.
