The Ravens have made a big addition to their offensive line.

Free agent guard Kevin Zeitler has agreed to a three-year, $22.5 million contract with the Ravens, according to multiple reports.

Zeitler can sign now, rather than waiting until the start of the league year on Wednesday, because the Giants cut him last week.

The 31-year-old Zeitler started all 16 games last year, and the Ravens hope he can step in as an immediate upgrade for a line that needs to give Lamar Jackson time to pass and room to run.

  1. On the surface it’s a good signing. Dig deeper and it’s excellent. Ravens are about to lose a number of guys to big deals in free agency. Signing Zeitler doesn’t hurt their comp picks next year. Wouldn’t surprise me if they sign Rick Wagner back too, cut from Green Bay, and trade Brown away.

  2. The Giants couldn’t rework his contract down to these numbers? Should have fired Gettleman after the Barkley pick.

  3. Great signing – Zeitler fills a need – may see another signing on O-Line if Brown is traded – the AFC North knows how good this guy is – you don’t see a lot of 1st round Guards and he was one – perfect plug in for the hole Yanda left when he retired.

  4. Haven’t followed him after that crazy deal he signed with Cleveland. Think they cut him later due to high $. How does he rate these days?

  5. Ravens always signing the released players, never the free agents. Always piling those comp picks.

  6. Zeitler was the best o-lineman on the Giants last year…and that is with him having his worst statistical season of his career. Sort of tells you how bad the Giants o-line was. He’s ok but he’s never even been a pro-bowler and his best years are behind him on top of it.

  7. Lamar passing is funny. You meant room to run.

    ======================

    Not sure if you watch football at all. Lamar is just 1 season removed from a 36 TD, 6 INT season where he led the NFL in passing touchdowns. 😉

    “Legal” tampering.

    ————————

    It’s not tampering, Zeitler was cut by the Giants. It’s amazing how much information about football is out there and fans still don’t understand simple things like getting waived vs. your contract expiring and being a FA.
