The Ravens have acquired offensive tackle Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars according to league sources.
Terms of the deal were not available Tuesday night.
Monroe is a starting left tackle and will likely be competing with Bryant McKinnie for a starting spot on the Ravens offensive line.
McKinnie was signed to a two-year contract worth $6.3 million including a $2 million signing bonus in May. However McKinnie reported to training camp overweight for the second year in a row and wasn’t immediately cleared to practice. He has started every game this season but has not drawn much praise.
Monroe is under contract through 2014 with a base salary of $3.8 million this season and $2.562 million in 2014.
The Ravens rank 28th in rushing offense averaging 64 yards per game. And quarterback Joe Flacco has been sacked a dozen times.
The motivation for Jaguars general manager David Caldwell would be to acquire all the draft pick ammunition he can get to try to upgrade the roster.
