OWINGS MILLS — The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms with former New England Patriots offensive tackle Mark LeVoir on Saturday following a workout, according to his agent, Eric Metz.

Looking to bolster their depth on the offensive line, the Ravens tried out LeVoir and former Tennessee Titans center-guard Jason Murphy.

Given the Ravens’ offensive line situation, it’s a strong possibility that the Ravens will add Murphy to the roster as soon as today. The Ravens would need to cut some players to do so.

LeVoir, 29, was claimed off waivers by the Patriots from the St. Louis Rams three years ago following a previous stint with the Chicago Bears.

Originally signed by the Bears as a rookie free agent in 2006 out of Notre Dame, the 6-foot-7, 310-pounder played in 32 games, including two starts over three seasons in New England.

LeVoir reportedly refused to take a pay cut in New England, leading to his release three days ago.

LeVoir played in six games last season for the Patriot, seeing most of his action in short-yardage situations as a tight end and on special teams.

He played left tackle against the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints.

A Parade Magazine and USA Today All-American in high school as a tight end who also played fullback, tailback, wide receiver and punter, LeVoir was a three-year starter for the Fighting Irish offensive line.

Murphy, 29, is a 6-foot-2, 304-pound Baltimore native who has previously played for the Titans, San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks. He has also played in the United Football League with the New York Sentinels and Florida Tuskers.

Murphy played collegiately at Virginia Tech.
