Sorry I couldn't provide more, but I'm not paying the money to become an "insider" for the Ravens...

This must mean he's healthy if they're giving him a second look.

They have a tendency to sign other teams' old o-lineman over the past couple of years...Willie Anderson, Matt Birk, maybe Marvel Smith. We may not be huge fans of Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, and Willie Colon but at least they are all young and have the potential to grow and improve. The guys the Ravens bring in are already on the back nine of their careers and have nowhere to go but down.

I agree with you...I think we will see a noticeable improvement in the OL with a year together. I would like to see a new RG (Rookie) or Colon moved inside with a new RT(Rookie). I think that could set this OL up for several years together after Hartwig leaves. I'm thinking one of the following is a Steeler to replace Hartwig at C next year... Mack, Unger, Wood, Luigs, Caldwell, or Shipley. Most of them could play G this year.
