Eugene Monroe rumors: Free agent offensive tackle “in no rush”

Veteran is non-committal on idea of playing the right side, says he will wait for best situation Free agent offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, a player widely linked to the New York Giants since the days immediately preceding his recent release from the Baltimore Ravens, said Tuesday on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he is "in no rush" to sign with a new team. The 29-year-old Monroe said there have been "discussions with a few teams." "I'm weighing my options right now. I don't feel like I have to jump on one of the first opportunities that come up," Monroe said. "I'm just trying to be patient, wait...

Eugene Monroe update: Seattle Seahawks reportedly out

Monroe could still be in play for the Giants, but it will take time One of the teams considered to be a possible landing spot for free-agent offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, the Seattle Seahawks, is reportedly out of the running. That is one less competitor for the New York Giants, who apparently remain interested in the 29-year-old. Monroe reportedly recently turned down the Giants, who want him to play right tackle. He also apparently turned down offers to play right tackle from the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. ESPN’s John Clayton had said several days ago that it appeared...

Should the Baltimore Ravens add a veteran offensive tackle?

The Eugene Monroe era is officially over after the Ravens released the unreliable left tackle. Without Monroe on the roster, the projected starters at offensive tackle are rookie top ten pick Ronnie Stanley on the blindside and fourth-year mauler Ricky Wagner bookending the right side of the offensive line. If one of the starters incurs an injury that forces them to miss time, the Ravens do have some in-house options. Elite right guard Marshal Yanda has performed admirably when called upon to slide out to right tackle on multiple occasions during his career. James Hurst played adequately as...

What now for New York Giants on the offensive line?

Jake Long? Anthony Davis? Phil Loadholt? Who might Giants turn to if Eugene Monroe won’t play right tackle? If the report is true that Eugene Monroe has rebuffed overtures from the New York Giants and won’t join them to play right tackle, and let’s not be certain that is the case, then where might the Giants turn in an effort to upgrade the offensive line? First, let’s talk about Monroe. Jason Cole of Bleacher Report reported a few days ago that Monroe, a career-long left tackle, would not come to New York because he does not want to play right tackle. With all due respect to Cole,...

Don’t expect the Buccaneers to pursue Eugene Monroe

The Baltimore Ravens made a surprise move by cutting tackle Eugene Monroe this past week. The former first-round pick has started nearly every game he’s played, but has been limited by injuries in recent years. That likely led the Ravens to cut him, after drafting Ronnie Stanley in the first round of this year’s draft. Then again, maybe it was because of Monroe’s medical marijuana advocacy. Regardless of what the reason was, there’s now a very good offensive tackle on the market, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were linked to several tackles in free agency and the draft — though they...

Eugene Monroe turns down Giants, wants to remain at left tackle, per report

The San Francisco 49ers are set at left tackle, so if it Monroe does want to remain at the position, cross them off the list. It is safe to say that for the time-being, the San Francisco 49ers will not be signing Eugene Monroe. Jason Cole (wait before laughing) is reporting Monroe turned down overtures from the New York Giants largely because he wants to stay at left tackle. Josina Anderson reported after Monroe’s release that he preferred staying at left tackle, so this is not exactly a shocking development. Cole’s video was a bit off in discussion what might be next for Monroe. He...

Baltimore Ravens Minicamp: 3 Things We Learned

Ravens Minicamp just wrapped up, and boy did a lot happen this week. So after this crazy week of minicamp, what have we learned? 1. The Ravens like Ronnie Stanley, a lot The Ravens cut left tackle, Eugene Monroe, this week, essentially giving rookie let left tackle Ronnie Stanley the starting job. We already knew the Ravens liked Stanley a lot, why else would they have spent the sixth overall pick on him. But Ozzie was trying to work out a trade to get rid of Monroe. The potential trade was figured to have involved the Ravens getting draft picks in return for Monroe. We don’t know exactly...

Eugene Monroe [reportedly] turns down the New York Giants

The Giants want Eugene Monroe to play right tackle, but the former Raven wants to stay on the left. Is the Giants' pursuit of him over? The New York Giants expressed early interest in former Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Eugene Monroe. First they tried to work out a trade for him, which fell through when they wanted to pay him based on starts rather than with guaranteed money, and now they are attempting to sign him as a free agent. After saying that he would take his time in choosing a new team, a report surfaced on Friday that Monroe has turned down an offer from the Giants to play...

Ravens LT Ronnie Stanley understands the pressure that is in front of him

When the Baltimore Ravens released left tackle Eugene Monroe on Wednesday this week, rookie left tackle Ronnie Stanley immediately became the starter for the Ravens at the position not only in 2016 but for years to come. There's obvious pressure on Stanley to perform not only because the Ravens selected him with the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but because the Ravens are a bit thinner in terms of depth at left tackle. The Ravens need Stanley to stay healthy like humans need air to breathe. If Stanley goes down with an injury, the Ravens are looking at rookie fourth-round...

Giants insist lineman’s marijuana stance isn’t a drawback

Eugene Monroe’s public stance on the use of medical marijuana in the NFL won’t deter the Giants from signing the free agent offensive tackle. At least, that was the message coming from coach Ben McAdoo and his players after the final practice of the team’s three-day minicamp on Thursday. Released by the Ravens on Wednesday,...

Ben McAdoo: OK with Eugene Monroe's stance on medical marijuana

The Giants may or may not sign veteran tackle Eugene Monroe, a free agent since his release from the Ravens on Wednesday. Either way, that decision will have very little to do with Monroe's controversial stance on the use of medical marijuana.

Ravens PR mentioned Eugene Monroe marijuana advocacy in release article

The Giants head coach has since said Monroe’s advocacy on a controversial topic does not bother him. We can be pretty sure it doesn’t bother Jed York, either. The Baltimore Ravens released offensive tackle Eugene Monroe earlier this week, and the San Francisco 49ers have been mentioned as a team that has expressed interest. It is entirely possible the 49ers were floated by Monroe’s agent in order to boost the market, but given the questions at right tackle, it is certainly possible the team is asking Monroe if he’d consider right tackle. Whatever the case, Monroe’s departure from...

Giants' McAdoo: Eugene Monroe entitled to his opinion

Veteran offensive tackle not backing off calls for NFL to allow use of medical marijuana If the New York Giants sign free agent offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, they will have to deal with his outspoken campaign for the NFL to legalize medical marijuana. Monroe has made it clear he isn't backing off. pic.twitter.com/sw4EOXJRZr — Eugene Monroe (@MrEugeneMonroe) June 16, 2016 It is a good thing, then, that Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Thursday that he would have no problem coaching a player who expressed such an opinion. "I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Myself, I...
