On Thursday, PFT speculated that the Ravens could be interested in former draft pick Tony Pashos, now of the Jaguars, as an option to shore up their depth at offensive tackle.
It turns out, they have been looking at a player with a lot more experience in the league.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens tried to gauge whether right tackle Willie Anderson would consider returning to the team after “retiring” in May.
Anderson tweeted about the news: “Just had to inform Raven’s coaching staff and manangement that for now I’m staying retired. They’ve been in talks with me since May about coming back. I wanted to come back too!”
It sounds like Anderson would consider returning if the team is in a serious bind.
“Not saying that down the line if they need [me], I won’t come back. I know I can play for 3 more years so who knows what may happen down the line,” wrote Anderson.
Coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens already successfully convinced Derrick Mason to “unretire” early in training camp. The team clearly isn’t comfortable with its backup situation behind Jared Gaither and rookie Michael Oher.
