NFL Trade: Baltimore Ravens acquire Jeremy Zuttah from Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers put the purging of their offensive line to rest earlier this month but they’re right back at with their latest transaction. After rumors surfaced that he could be cut, the Buccaneers have traded center and guard Jeremy Zuttah to the Baltimore Raven for an undisclosed 2015 Draft pick.

The deal isn’t official yet, but the Buccaneers have agreed on the draft pick they’re receiving from the Ravens and it’s now up to Baltimore to work out a deal with Zuttah. The former Rutgers lineman showed some flash with the Bucs a few years ago but failed to find a home on the line. He moved from guard to center under Greg Schiano but he was part of a terrible offensive line ravaged by injuries and poor play.

In Baltimore, he’ll be on a line with much more talent, but the expectation to excel in blocking for Joe Flacco will remain the same as it was before he disappointed in Tampa.
