Ravens, Eugene Monroe agree on extension

Yahoo Sports

Eugene Monroe, widely considered the best offensive lineman available in this year's NFL free-agent market, has agreed on an extension with the Baltimore Ravens for five years and $37.5 million, league sources told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday.

The Baltimore Ravens traded for Monroe in early October – getting him from the Jacksonville Jaguars for fourth- and fifth-round draft picks – and declined to put the franchise tag on him, which would've cost about $11.6 million.

Monroe, 26, was a first-round pick for the Jaguars in 2009. He started 73 of 76 games for Jacksonville.
