Ravens, Monroe: “Nowhere Close”

Eugene Monroe introduced

The start of free agency is less than a week away, and the Baltimore Ravens and impending free agent left tackle Eugene Monroe remain “nowhere close” to agreeing on the terms of a long-term contract that will keep Monroe in Baltimore, according to a source.

It’s still possible a deal could be worked out, but it’s unlikely one will be agreed on before free agency starts March 11, according to the source.

That has to be frustrating for the Ravens.

They traded a fourth- and a fifth-round pick in this year’s NFL draft for Monroe in October, and members of the organization have said multiple times since the end of the season that they want the 26-year old Monroe to be their starting left tackle going forward.

Monroe has also talked before about the respect he has for Baltimore’s organization and has said he would like to work out a long-term deal to remain with the Ravens.

But it comes down to money, and another team could be willing to pay more than Baltimore is if Monroe does in fact become an unrestricted free agent next week.

      @Rick,
      He joined us midway through the season and was still our best O-lineman. I get not wanting to pay a #12 LT like a #5 LT. That’s good business. But he was neither a chump nor a disappointment.

      • Dale on said:

        Saying he was the best on our O-Line is really not saying much at all. I agree he’s not a chump and you can’t blame the guy for wanting a big Pay Day but like you guys said, Ozzie should not break the bank on this guy

    Let him go and take the 3rd RD Supp Pick next year…Also MOher & AJones to get us 2 4 RD Supp Picks and a 7th for CGraham…Don’t let them Hold us Hostage Like Flacco did last year causing us to Cut ABoldin and Hurt the Team…Then Trade Down in the 1st RD at least once or Twice to recoup the other Picks lost Trading for EMonroe…This Draft is loaded if we make the CORRECT PICKS Ozzie !!! If we have another Poor Off-Season like Last Year, it will be 2 years in a Row OUT of the Playoffs…And it May Cost Ozzie’s Coach His Job…VERY Important Off-Season for Ozzie with lots of Consequences to Follow…Im Rooting for Ozzie to Hit a HomeRun or 2 With a Grand Slam for Good Measure !!!
