Ravens claim Billy Turner

The Ravens claimed guard Billy Turner via waivers from the Dolphins Wednesday.

Turner’s help is needed immediately. The Ravens practiced Wednesday without tackles Ronnie Stanley and Rick Wagner and guard Marshal Yanda due to injuries.

Turner was forced to start at left tackle last Sunday for the Dolphins after Laremy Tunsil suffered a pregame injury. It was a disaster for the Dolphins as quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked six times, and Turner and fellow offensive lineman Dallas Thomas were released earlier this week.

The Dolphins drafted Turner in the third round in 2014. He’s made 14 career starts.

The Ravens cut backup linebacker Chris Carter to make room on the roster for Turner.

    That’s a win for both Turner and the Ravens. I hate Baltimore but it’s better than Miami. At football that’s it

    Now watch him become a Pro Bowl caliber guard!

    The Ravens offensive line is a dumpster fire. They need to get serious about getting a top flight left guard or center in this next draft, or Flacco will keep getting battered.

    Signing Turner is a totally desperate move, he has sucked since the day he was drafted.

    Joe may need to run for his health, what you see in the Miami game was real. Bill

    Please – Billy Turner is a TACKLE.

    He was an OT in high school – 3 years (33 games)
    He was an OT in college – 4 years (56 games)
    He was an OT on draft day.

    Was to be heir apparent to Brandon Albert his rookie season. Was placed at guard for the first time in his career last season by the offensive wizard Joe Philbin.

    I liked Turner’s potential, size and mean streak – but he gave up 7 sacks in 4 games (Regular & preseason) this year. Not good.

    Wish him well.
