Ryan Jensen is the most important player that the Baltimore Ravens could lose this offseason, however they can spend their money elsewhere:
Signing Ryan Jensen would be a luxury for the Baltimore Ravens. The purple and black would have a starting center instead of a question in the middle of their offensive line. The Ravens would welcome back Marshall Yanda and Alex Lewis from injury and all would be good up front for the Baltimore Ravens. The offensive line has a chance to be great next season considering how it did okay with all the adversity of the 2017 season. Jensen coming back, would be a huge move for the offensive line.
At the end of the day though, the Ravens have bigger things to check off their list, than a center who had one good season as a starter. Jensen is a valuable center, but we can’t act like he is a dominant player. He’s not the best center in football, and he’s not even close to that level. The Ravens have needs at other positions that are much more important to the Ravens cause. The Ravens need play-makers, they can find more blockers.
I want Jensen to come back as much as the next guy. With the top two receivers off the market because of the dreaded franchise tag, it is a little easier for the Ravens to consider giving some cap space to the center from Colorado State-Pueblo. However, it would take a hard sales pitch to get me on board with signing Jensen instead of a play-maker (or two). Here are three reasons the Ravens can and probably should replace Jensen.
