Offensive tackle Michael Oher is set to become a free agent in March and it looks like he will not be returning to the Baltimore Ravens when the 2014 NFL season officially begins. According to the Baltimore Sun, re-signing Oher “isn’t a priority” for the Ravens front-office and they are expected to let him walk.
The report added that Oher has ”probably seen his last days in Baltimore.”
Oher has spent the first few seasons of his career working on the right side of the Ravens offensive line, but he has never been able to develop into the top-tier bookend that the team had been hoping for.
With an underwhelming portfolio of work, it will be interesting to see what the market is like for Oher when he hits free agency.
There are plenty of teams who will need offensive line help, but not many will be willing to shell out the money that Oher may be looking for. If push comes to shove, it would not be a surprise to see Oher landing on a team like the Miami Dolphins, who will be in desperate need of offensive line help, on a deal worth just over the veteran minimum.
