Since being drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, Michael Oher has started every game for the Baltimore Ravens. Oher is a free agent in 2014 and just finished through his rookie contract. However, the 27-year-old tackle is not a priority to be re-signed according to a report.
Oher’s 2013 campaign was not a great one by any means. He allowed eight sacks and 43 total quarterback pressures. Now, it seems that the most famous tackle in football, because of the hit movie a few years ago, “The Blind Side,” has played his last game with the Ravens.
Oher struggles heavily in the running attack. According to Pro Football Focus, Oher averaged a grade of -1.06 a game in run blocking. Oher finished average in pass blocking. Oher never formed into a left tackle like the Ravens hoped for and he stayed at right tackle for the most part.
Oher should be able to find a home somewhere else in the National Football League without any real problem. Oher has a nice track record of being a first round choice, a Super Bowl champion, and durability to start in 80 consecutive games. Oher was making a salary of about $3,785,000 in Baltimore. That price may fall a bit for Oher with his next team.
