2014 Free Agency: No movement in negotiations between Ravens and Eugene Monroe

If Monroe hits free agency, it helps the Bengals because it add an already decent class of free agent offensive tackles.

No progress has been made in negotiations between the Baltimore Ravens and offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, according to Aaron Wilson with the Baltimore Sun. Now that agents can work out principle contract language with teams (no actual offers are allowed), Monroe will most likely check the open market.

According to recent reports, Monroe is demanding something in the neighborhood of $10 million per season whereas the Ravens are looking at $8-9 million.

The addition of Monroe in free agency helps Cincinnati retain offensive tackle Anthony Collins, largely because it saturates the market for pass protection specialists. Both are expected to join Jared Veldeer, Brandon Albert, Charles Brown, Chris Williams, and Bruce Campbell as unrestricted free agents when the new league year begins at 4 p.m. this Tuesday.
