Report: Ravens & OT Eugene Monroe “Nowhere Close” To Deal

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Matt Zenitz, citing a league source, reports that the Ravens and impending free agent LT Eugene Monroe remain “nowhere close” to reaching an agreement on a long-term extension.

  • Zenitz’s source did not rule out a potential deal at some point, but believes that Monroe will “at least test the free agent market.

The Ravens reportedly considered the idea of franchising Monroe, but ultimately elected not to, likely because it would have cost them $11.654 million fully guaranteed.

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.
