The Baltimore Sun reports C Jeremy Zuttah's new deal with the Ravens runs through 2018.
Financial terms are not yet available. Zuttah is still only 28 (in June), but he won't be the Ravens' center for the next five years if he doesn't improve on his 2013, where he was essentially replacement level in the middle. All the Ravens care about right now is that Zuttah is a (major) upgrade on Gino Gradkowski. Mar 27 - 3:53 PM

Date:

Ravens acquired C Jeremy Zuttah from the Buccaneers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

They're also signing him to a long-term deal. Zuttah, 28 in June, is a Rutgers alum who was on the outs in Tampa after Greg Schiano's departure. He ranked 22nd among 35 qualifying centers in Pro Football Focus' 2013 ratings, while incumbent Ravens C Gino Gradkowski came in dead last at 35th. Zuttah isn't an All Pro, but he's a stable addition to a Baltimore line that got rag-dolled last season. Zuttah also ran a sub-5.00 forty time coming out and is a big athletic upgrade. He's a strong fit for new OC Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens are expected to trade for Buccaneers C Jeremy Zuttah.

Per the Sun's Aaron Wilson, it's "unclear when the deal will be finalized, or terms of the trade." Zuttah has been a release candidate in Tampa and Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is arguably the league's savviest shot caller, so we can't imagine the Bucs will be getting more than a sixth-round pick. Zuttah played below-average football in 2013, but was viewed as an ascending player before that and can play guard or center. He turns 28 in June. Zuttah's 2014 base salary is $4.5 million, so Baltimore will likely look to rework his deal.
Mar 23 - 3:30 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Buccaneers are "open to listening to offers" for C/G Jeremy Zuttah.

Zuttah's $4.5 million base salary will be prohibitive, especially when interested clubs know the Buccaneers will likely just wind up releasing him. The Bucs' entire line took a step back last season, and GM Jason Licht has prioritized overhauling it. Zuttah, 27, has generally been a quality NFL starter.
Mar 16 - 8:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora considers the Giants a possible landing spot for C Jeremy Zuttah.

Zuttah's roster spot is in danger following the signing of Evan Dietrich-Smith. The Bucs are considering keeping Zuttah and moving him to guard, but can clear his entire $4.5 million cap hit without any dead money if they choose to release him. The Giants currently have just J.D. Walton and free-agent Kevin Boothe as candidates for their starting center job.
Mar 14 - 8:22 PM

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas reports C Jeremy Zuttah's roster spot could be in danger.

Zuttah has started all 32 games the past two seasons and can also play both guard spots. He has two years left on a four-year, $16.3 million deal. The Bucs can clear Zuttah's entire $4.5 million cap hit without any dead money hits if they choose to release him. Zuttah, 28 in June, is merely an average talent.

Bucs C Jeremy Zuttah triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3.625 million to $3.875 million.

Zuttah just signed a new four-year contract last offseason. He went on to start all 16 games, seven at center and nine at left guard after Carl Nicks was injured. Zuttah has missed just two games over the last four seasons, and with Nicks and RG Davin Joseph returning to health, he'll move back to center in 2013.

Updating previous items, the Bucs plan to play Jeremy Zuttah at center under new coach Greg Schiano.

It's ominous news for incumbent C Jeff Faine, who is due a $5.925 million base salary and roughly $8 million cap number after a miserable season, by all accounts. Zuttah has the flexibility to play both guard and center, and he'll give the Bucs a well-put-together pivot at 6-foot-4 and 308 pounds. Look for the team to release Faine either later today or tomorrow, ahead of free agency.

Bucs agreed to terms with LG Jeremy Zuttah on a four-year contract.

Zuttah played for Greg Schiano at Rutgers, and will return as the Bucs' starting left guard in 2012. RG Davin Joseph and C Jeff Faine make up the rest of Tampa Bay's interior line. Zuttah is particularly valued for his versatility, as he can play both guard spots, center, and right tackle. The 26-year-old (in June) graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 25 overall guard in 2011. Zuttah would have been much higher if not for eight penalties, the most by a guard in the NFC.

The St. Petersburg Times reports there is "nothing imminent" between the Bucs and free agent G/C Jeremy Zuttah.

Although Zuttah's agent said Monday there was a "good chance" his client wouldn't reach free agency, there has yet to be "substantive" talks. Unless Zuttah is making unreasonable demands, the odds are high he'll remain in Tampa Bay.
Tue, Feb 21, 2012 10:18:00 PM

The player rep for free agent G/C Jeremy Zuttah says "there's a good chance" Zuttah won't reach the open market.

"It seems the conversation is pointed (toward getting a deal done)," the agent said. "... Both sides want to get something done, so it's just a matter of getting pen to paper." Capable of playing both guard and center, Zuttah has started 44 games since entering the league as a third-round pick in 2008.
Tue, Feb 21, 2012 08:16:00 AM

The St. Petersburg Times expects G/C Jeremy Zuttah and K Connor Barth to be the Bucs' priorities amongst their in-house free agents.

Capable of playing both guard and center, Zuttah appeared in 15 games last season, starting 14. Four months shy of his 26th birthday, he also played for new Bucs coach Greg Schiano at Rutgers. Barth converted 26-of-28 field-goal attempts in 2011. SI.com estimated Monday the Bucs are currently $67 million under the projected 2012 salary cap.

Bucs G/C Jeremy Zuttah was forced from Sunday's game against the Bears with a left knee injury.

Filling in for an injured Jeff Faine, Zuttah was down on the ground for several minutes before being helped to the sideline. His day is likely through, but his injury did not appear catastrophic in nature. He's been replaced at center by LG Ted Larsen, while Derek Hardman is now in the game at left guard.
Sun, Oct 23, 2011 03:27:00 PM

The Bucs have elevated Jeremy Zuttah to the starting lineup at left guard, replacing Ted Larsen.

The undersized Larsen got smoked by the Lions' defensive line in the opener, giving up a whopping seven quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. Zuttah isn't likely to be a huge upgrade, but couldn't possibly be worse.
Fri, Sep 16, 2011 01:59:00 PM

Coach Raheem Morris confirmed that LG Jeremy Zuttah will have to hold off newly signed Keydrick Vincent in training camp to keep the starting job.

The Bucs have been looking for an upgrade at the position ever since Arron Sears left the team early last offseason. The running game would be better off with Vincent starting, as Zuttah struggled mightily in his first season as a starter.
