Ravens Could Sign Eric Winston


The Baltimore Ravens had a productive draft but they didn’t address one of the team’s biggest needs at the right tackle position.

According to Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com, the Ravens could sign veteran tackle Eric Winston.

Newsome pointed to the Ravens’ in-house options at right tackle with Ricky Wagner (a fifth-round pick last year) and the potential of moving Kelechi Osemele over from left guard to tackle, where he played his rookie season.

“We’ll just shake things up and see how the best thing happens,” Newsome said. “[But] if the opportunity presents itself for us to acquire a player to play tackle if we need to, we’ll be able to do it.”

Newsome seemed to point towards the possibility of signing a veteran. One player pundits point to is Eric Winston, who is still a free agent. He played six seasons under new Ravens Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak in Houston. Winston is just 30 years old and hasn’t missed a start since 2007. He bounced between the Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals the past two years, however.
