Michael Oher signs with Tennessee Titans


The offensive line talent pool for prospective teams continues to thin early into 2014 NFL Free Agency as teams scramble to lock up talent in the trenches to bolster depth in their blocking. With the Oakland Raiders meeting with recently released Tampa Bay Buccaneer OT Donald Penn today, the team had scheduled a visit for former Ravens lineman Michael Oher for the weekend after Oher visited with the Tennessee Titans.

Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders never got that visit as Oher signed a four year deal with the Titans on Friday afternoon.

$5 million a year for a veteran with some poor play of late is not a bad price for the Titans as if Oher can return to form they will have a guy who can be a quality starter somewhere on their offensive line. Hopefully the signing of Oher will lead to a development in the Raiders negotiations with Donald Penn as the team desperately needs to add another offensive line talent after voiding their offer to Rodger Saffold earlier in the week. Expect news on the Penn situation later tonight as he has a planned weekend meeting with Washington in the works so the Raiders will be pressing to lock down a deal much like the Titans did with Oher today.
