NFL Trade Rumors -

Report: Eugene Monroe “Unlikely” To Re-Sign With The Ravens

March 7, 2014 Ravens

 

Aaron Wilson reports that the Baltimore Ravens and free agent LT Eugene Monroe are still “far apart” in contract talks, which means Monroe will test the free agent market next week.

  • Wilson adds that based on the kind of money that Monroe is likely to get from other NFL teams, it’s “unlikely” he returns to Baltimore next season.
  • Matt Zenitz reports that Monroe is looking for a long-term deal that averages close to $10 million annually while the Ravens are offering something in the range of $8 -$9 million per year.

Wilson mentions that the Ravens will have several options at left tackle in free agency and the draft to consider.

Monroe, 26, was able to step in and play very well for the Ravens at position of need for them after coming over from the Jaguars. Mid-season trades rarely produce immediate results in the NFL, so there is something to be said about Monroe’s performance last season.

Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 qualifying left tackle in the league. We have Monroe listed as the No. 5 player in our recently updated Top 50 Free Agents list.
