Eugene Monroe Trade Finalized, Billy Bajema Cut

Posted Oct 3, 2013

The Ravens kept left tackle Bryant McKinnie on their active 53-man roster.


Left tackle Eugene Monroe is now officially a Baltimore Raven.

Monroe reported to Baltimore Thursday morning and passed his physical exam, completing the trade with Jacksonville for a reported fourth- and fifth-round pick in next year’s draft.

The Ravens made room for Monroe on their 53-man roster while keeping tackle Bryant McKinnie. Baltimore terminated the contract of vested veteran tight end Billy Bajema.

Bajema spent all of last season with the Ravens and was re-signed just before the start of the regular season. The primary blocking tight end caught his first pass as a Raven in Week 2 against Cleveland, which went for 18 yards.

There was a thought that Baltimore could part ways with McKinnie, but the Ravens may need him to start this Sunday in Miami if Monroe isn’t ready to go that quickly. His first practice with the team will presumably be today.

Harbaugh was asked on Wednesday whether he thought Monroe could face the Dolphins.

“I don’t know,” he said. “He’s not here yet, so once we get him here we’ll figure that out. … Obviously we’re bringing Eugene in to play. How soon that can happen remains to be seen.”

Harbaugh was also asked what the Monroe addition means for McKinnie’s status with the team.

“I think we’ll find that out. We’ll see as we go,” he said.

There are reports that Baltimore is expected to try to trade McKinnie. The Ravens may also want to keep him as a reserve.

With Bajema gone, the Ravens now have tight ends Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark on the active roster and undrafted rookie Matt Furstenburg on the practice squad.

Monroe will wear No. 60 in Baltimore. He wore No. 75 in Jacksonville, but that number isn’t given out because it was worn by Hall of Famer Jonathan Ogden.
