Who's Out There? Interior Offensive Line


If the Ravens want to upgrade the interior of their offensive line, there are veteran targets available in free agency.

Baltimore's offense will focus on bulldozing holes for quarterback Lamar Jackson and the running game.

Here's a snapshot look at the prospective free agent offensive linemen:

C Mitch Morse, Kansas City Chiefs
Unrestricted; 26 years old; 6-foot-6, 305 pounds

Morse was the sixth-highest graded center in the league per Pro Football Focus (PFF) last year. He anchored a strong Kansas City offensive line that paved the way for one of the best offenses in the league. Morse, a 2015 second-round pick out of Missouri, didn't give up a single sack last season, per PFF. He has missed 14 games over the past two seasons with injuries (foot, concussion), however.

C Matt Paradis, Denver Broncos
Unrestricted; 29 years old; 6-foot-3, 300 pounds

Paradis was graded the ninth-best center in the league by PFF last year in an injury-shortened campaign. He fractured his fibula after nine games, which sent him to the sideline for the first time in his career. The 2015 sixth-round pick out of Boise State became an instant starter.

OG Rodger Saffold, Los Angeles Rams
Unrestricted; 31 years old; 6-foot-5, 323 pounds

Saffold was the 11th-best guard in the NFL in 2018, per PFF. He got especially high marks for his run blocking in the Rams' dangerous offense. Saffold will likely command big money on the open market.

OG T.J. Lang, Detroit Lions
Unrestricted; 31 years old; 6-foot-4, 318 pounds

Lang went to back-to-back Pro Bowls in 2016 and 2017. The former Green Bay Packer signed a three-year deal with the Lions two years ago. After a strong first year, he suffered from head, back and neck injuries last season, which limited him to just six games.

OG Mike Iupati, Arizona Cardinals
Unrestricted; 31 years old; 6-foot-5, 331 pounds

A four-time Pro Bowler and former first-round pick, Iupati has plenty of experience and talent, but has been struck by injuries in recent seasons. His 2017 campaign was cut short after one game because of a triceps tear, and he sat out six games last season with back and knee (MCL) injuries.
