Ravens Claim OT Madsen off Waivers

More Competition at the Tackle Spot

The Ravens claimed offensive tackle Paul Madsen off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills Saturday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

The 6-foot-4, 309-pound rookie from Colorado State will likely compete for a spot on an offensive line that boasts four other tackles, including Bryant McKinnie, Michael Oher, Ramon Harewood and Kelechi Osemele.

Madsen, 26, is older than most rookies because he delayed his college enrollment to 2007, after signing a letter of intent in 2004, in order to serve a mission in Lubbock, Tex. for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon church).

At Colorado State, Madsen became a second-team all-conference selection the last two seasons.

To make room for Madsen, the Ravens released undrafted rookie running back Brandon Pendergrass (Wake Forest), according to Wilson.
