      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Welcome to Bmore, Zuttah

254 posts in this topic

I like the move. At only 27, Zuttah could be here for a long time, and he could be the glue that holds the line together. 

 

On the other hand, Tampa Bay was the 22nd ranked rushing attack in 2013 and they only averaged a 7th worst 3.8 yards a carry. They also allowed a 7th most 47 sacks. I don't know how much Zuttah had to do with that, but I guess we'll find out. I'm not ready to sing praises yet, but there is reason for optimism.

At this point anybody is better than our current option in Gino. I'll hold any excitement till I see him with the other 4 on the line but I'm optimistic.

6'4 and 308 lbs.

 

Ozzie wanted to get bigger up front, and that's exactly what he did.

 

Yeah, one inch and five pounds bigger. Lol

I still think we should have gotten EDS, but I'm happy we got Zuttah. I think he can be solid, and that's what we need.

Aaron Wilson reporting they already agreed to a long term contract extension

 

Oh nice!

 

This isn't a big name signing but a signing that people may hate now because he isn't Alex Mack but when our o-line improves, nobody will be hating this trade.

Makes sense. His cap hit for this year was 4.5 mil.

Most anyone would be an upgrade over Gino, so I'm very happy. When assessing his play, consider the Bucs were scrapping their entire line, so he didn't have the best talent next to him. In Baltimore he'll have Kelechi and Yanda. He's also got experience with making calls, so that's a very underrated boost

Unless we sign Mack and he plays LG and KO moves to RT!

Can I dream?

Gino was dead last.

Doesn't really fit that typical "AFC North / Smashmouth" mold but the coaching staff must like what they've seen from him skillwise. He can play guard too, that's always a plus.

Zuttah is very versatile, he can also play guard. Could be the start to move KO back out to right tackle... We may still be after Mack or another center. I like the trade no matter what Zuttah is used for though.

Zuttah ranked 21st in Matt Miller's center rankings on Bleacher Report. Basically, Miller says Zuttah is a good athlete but he lacks strength and struggles with big DTs. From what I've gathered, Zuttah is what Gino will be in a few years time. Athletic enough to hold his own but not quite strong enough to dominate.

I wouldn't assume Zuttah is being brought here to start at center or guard, probably more for depth and insurance.

 

Who knows, maybe the change of scenery turns him into The Hulk.
