6. The Ravens could target Cornelius Lucas in free agency
Cornelius Lucas is going to be one of the best value free-agent signings for some team this offseason. At 30-years-old, Lucas has ample NFL experience having first entered the league as an undrafted free agent back in 2014.
Since then, he’s appeared in 82 games making 31 starts for five different teams. Lucas is widely seen as one of the best swing tackles in football, holding down the fort whenever called upon.
He has experience playing both tackle spots and has started 23 games over the last three seasons grading out as a top-30 tackle in the NFL by Pro Football Focus in each year.
Lucas would be an affordable, high-quality swing tackle option who could even start in a pinch. Think of him as the Ravens’ Ronnie Stanley insurance policy.
5. The Ravens could target Riley Reiff in free agency
Riley Reiff wouldn’t be your typical swing tackle. Unlike Lucas, Reiff will likely be looking for a starting job this offseason, and it’s likely he garners some interest on the open market.
The 33-year-old has started a whopping 139 games over the course of his 10-year career. He could serve as the Alejandro Villanueva signing of this offseason, only in the form of someone playing at a higher level with more versatility.
Reiff has started at both tackle spots in his career most recently starting 12 games for the Bengals at right tackle in 2021.
He could step in as the Ravens’ Week 1 starting right tackle while also providing insurance at left tackle in case Stanley’s injury issues pop up again.
