Michael Oher is heading to Tennessee.
Oher, the offensive tackle who has spent his entire five-year career with the Ravens, agreed to terms today on a contract with the Titans. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, it’s a four-year, $20 million deal that includes $9.5 million guaranteed.
Although Oher has started all 80 games since the Ravens selected him in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft, he struggled at times last season. And although he was drafted with the hopes that he’d be a franchise left tackle, he seemed to be more suited to the right side.
As the subject of the best-selling book and hit movie The Blind Side, Oher is the NFL’s most famous offensive lineman. In Tennessee, he’ll be counted on to help turn around an offense that new coach Ken Whisenhunt was hired to revitalize.
