    Awesome player. He kicked my team’s @$$.

  2. 22M guaranteed for one decent season and 42M overall.
    BMore lineman only do it in BMore. Don’t take my word for it,
    Just ask Adalious Thomas, Paul Kruger, Bart Scott, and the
    rest of the Gang Plank Crew. And the list continues 😵

  3. Love this move, I’ve been frustrated that Licht hasn’t done anything meaningful other than bringing back or extending the Bucs own players but this improves the team in a big way. Now Ali Marpet can be kicked back out to Guard where he belongs and this opens the way to cut JR Sweezy since I doubt he’ll ever fully recover from his back injury. If they draft one of the top Guard prospects in the Draft like Nelson, Hernandez, or Smith and get a decent RB then suddenly the Bucs will have a balanced offense.

    On a side note I really love the nasty and loyalty this guy brings to the O-line, if I remember correctly he’s the one who got into a fight with Kiko Alonso after Alonso took that cheap shot at Joe Flacco, I love that in a teammate.

  4. A decent player – and the Ravens will miss him. But $22 million guaranteed? I don’t think so

  5. Jensen is a great runblocker, but really mediocre as a pass blocker. He is nasty, but it got him penalties. I think they paid waaay too much for a decent player.

  6. One of Ozzie’s rare offensive draft picks that amounted to something. 6th rounder who is a clear starter now. Wish we didn’t have so much money wrapped up in free agents plugging other holes that we could have kept him in purple and black.

  7. Dirty player who is always starting stuff on the field. He flies in late down field to hit the DB’s often.
