Ravens plan to bring Chris Chester back as a backup

The Ravens offensive line struggled last season after being considered one of the better young groups in the league.

That means changes are coming, apparently starting with a demotion of free agent Chris Chester — if Chester returns to the team.  Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun writes that Chester, who started 14 games season at right guard, will be brought back as a reserve center.

The Ravens want Chester to back up Matt Birk, who is entering his fourteenth season.  Of course it’s also possible another team will give a decent contract to Chester considering he’s young (28) and has started 38 times for a winning teams over the last three years.
