Villanueva agrees to two-year deal with Ravens

Recommended Posts

Very solid move. The line is set but not in sync because of everybody moving around. Stanley back after a year off. Bozeman at center. Villanueva at RT. RG up for grabs between Cleveland and others. New LG. They need camp and the preseason to get their timing down. The Ravens should have a great road grading bunch and better pass protectors. 


according to Pro Football Focus, he allowed just three sacks on 724 pass-blocking snaps last season, a better rate than Brown in 2020. :thumbup:

The Ravens have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $14 million deal with free agent Alejandro Villanueva, including $8 million fully guaranteed, finding a potential replacement right tackle just 11 days after they traded away Pro Bowl starter Orlando Brown Jr.

The 6-foot-9, 320-pound Villanueva, who turns 33 in September, started 90 straight games from the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2015 to 2020.

Nice find grubber!

Another good point. He's insurance for Stanley....


The Ravens also get a safety net for left tackle Ronnie Stanley, who is coming off a season-ending ankle injury and hasn't played a full 16-game season in his five-year career. Villanueva made 90 starts at left tackle from 2015 to 2020 and reached the Pro Bowl in 2017 and 2018.

This potentially gives Baltimore one of the most formidable-looking offensive lines in the league with left tackle Stanley (6-foot-6, 315 pounds), left guard Ben Cleveland (6-6, 357), center Bradley Bozeman (6-5, 325), right guard Kevin Zeitler (6-4, 315) and right tackle Villanueva (6-9, 320).

By signing Villanueva after Monday, he will not cancel out any of Baltimore's compensatory picks.

Dude is 6-9.  Holy shit!

Also read a poorly translated interview with him.  He was not a fan of the Steelers offensive scheming

This was a 'must do' action by the Ravens. If Stanley comes back healthy, the line will be plenty good enough now with a lot of potential.
