According to the Carroll County Times, contract talks between the Ravens and offensive lineman Eugene Monroe have hit a standstill.
The Baltimore Ravens traded for Eugene Monroe in October hoping that Monroe could be a long-term answer for them at left tackle.
But five months after the Ravens gave up two middle-round 2014 draft picks for Monroe, the 26-year old is likely to leave as a free agent, per sources.
Retaining Monroe was one of Baltimore’s biggest priorities entering the offseason, but negotiations between the Ravens and Monroe have reached a standstill, per sources.
Monroe is looking to make $10 million a year, which the Ravens aren’t willing to pay.
Per a source, Monroe wants a long-term deal that averages around $10M annually. The Ravens want him for closer to $8M or $9M per year
