The Ravens have re-signed guard Parker Ehinger, the team announced Tuesday, the latest move in a flurry of changes along the offensive line.
Ehinger spent much of last season on the Ravens’ practice squad before appearing in two games. He started the team’s season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and coach John Harbaugh said afterward that he was “knocking people off the ball.”
But after suffering a shoulder injury, Ehinger was placed on injured reserve in early January. His replacement was free-agent offensive tackle Andre Smith, who on Tuesday opted out of the 2020 season.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Ehinger, a fourth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016, suffered two knee injuries early in his career. He started at left tackle in college but has played only at guard in eight career NFL games, which could hurt his chances at earning a job as a backup tackle in Baltimore.
On Monday, the Ravens waived offensive linemen Evan Adams, Daishawn Dixon and R.J. Prince as part of their roster-trimming process. The team must have 80 players on its roster by the start of padded practices in mid-August.
