The Baltimore Ravens have traded for offensive lineman Jeremy Zuttah. In return for Zuttah the Ravens will send their 2015 fifth round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The story was broke by Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson. Zuttah provides some flexibility to the Ravens’ offensive line. He has started a majority of his career at center but also played both guard positions.

The current center Gino Gradkowski looks to have some competition this season. With the new head coach in Tampa, it looks as though they are cleaning house.

"“We said at the beginning of the offseason that we would be adding quality players to our line, and Jeremy fits that description. We are getting a player who has started at both center and guard and played well at each position. We’re excited to have him as a Raven and believe he can play a significant role for us.” Ozzie Newsome statement on acquiring Zuttah."

The Ravens are still in need of another tackle to replace the departure of Michael Oher. Unless another trade happens, the next time they acquire a tackle may be the NFL Draft.
