Could Sunday’s game be the last for Michael Oher as a Raven?


Baltimore’s week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals is important for many reasons. They have a shot to make the postseason with the last AFC spot available, however, if they don’t make the playoffs, it could be the last game in a Ravens jersey for a few players, including Michael Oher.

According to ESPN,

Oher, who has played right and left tackle for the Ravens the past five seasons, will be a free agent at the end of the season. The Ravens likely will let Oher go elsewhere and make it a priority to re-sign left tackle Eugene Monroe, especially since the team gave up a fourth- and fifth-round pick to acquire Monroe this season.

Oher knows that the NFL is a business, and that anything could happen once this season is over. It’s no surprise that he wouldn’t mind staying with the Ravens, but he’d be happy playing anywhere else as well.

“If it happens, that would be great. You don’t want to pick up and move,” Oher said about re-signing with the Ravens. “But that’s the nature of the business. This is a great organization. They’re going to put themselves in the best situation to win. If that means getting rid of me, they’re going to do what’s best for the team. I totally understand that.”

What do you think happens to Oher at the end of the season? Leave a comment below.
