Jah Reid Re-Signs With Ravens


The Ravens have re-signed offensive lineman Jah Reid to a one-year contract.

General Manager Ozzie Newsome hinted that the move was coming during Wednesday's pre-draft press conference.

The one-year deal is for the veteran minimum and has playing time clauses, reports The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

While Reid didn't become a regular starter after the Ravens traded up to draft him in the third round of the 2011 draft, he provides depth for Baltimore's offensive line. He can play right tackle and both guard spots.

Reid has battled multiple injuries, including a broken hand and calf ailment. He was active for just four games last season. Reid hasn't started since 2012, when he stepped in at left guard for seven games.

The 6-foot-7, 320-pound Central Florida product will be looked to if right tackle Rick Wagner, who is recovering a season-ending foot injury, isn't ready to suit up in summer camps or when games begin.

The only other backup tackles are rising sophomore James Hurst, who is more suited for the left side, and Marcel Jones, who hasn't suited up in three NFL seasons (two on the practice squad and one on injured reserve).
