Baltimore followed up a successful draft by adding depth to its offensive line, agreeing to terms with veteran D.J. Fluker, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
The retirement of Marshal Yanda leaves a question mark along Baltimore's offensive line, one that isn't answered easily. Adding a veteran with plenty of experience to the mix is the safest move as the Ravens look to fill that position long-term (Baltimore drafted Mississippi State offensive lineman Tyre Phillips with the final pick of the third round on Friday). Baltimore has demonstrated it isn't afraid of adding seasoned depth, too, signing Andre Smith during the season and retaining him during the offseason.
