Oniel Cousins and Jamon Meredith are working as the Buccaneers' first-team guards at OTAs.
The hope is Carl Nicks (toe) will be ready by Week 1, but there are no guarantees. Pro Football Focus graded Cousins as its No. 71 guard among 81 qualifiers last season, while Meredith came in 64th. Guard play is a concern for Doug Martin's fantasy outlook, in addition to top-70 draft pick Charles Sims. Mon, Jun 9, 2014 05:13:00 PM

The Buccaneers' vacant right guard position is currently a battle between G Jamon Meredith and G Oniel Cousins, but the team could look to address the position via the draft or free agency.

Both are underwhelming options, but Meredith at least was not the swinging door in pass protection Cousins has been. The Bucs would be smart to find another option at right guard.

Bucs signed G/T Oniel Cousins, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year contract.

Cousins, 30 in June, started the first four games of 2013 at right guard for the Browns but was thoroughly abused in pass protection, surrendering one sack and 20 hurries across 295 snaps. He was sent back to the bench and played just 27 snaps the rest of the season. Cousins will compete for a reserve role.

The Browns will stick with Oniel Cousins as their right guard for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Cousins played so poorly against the Dolphins in Week 1 that he deserved to get benched. The problem is the Browns have no depth with Shawn Lauvao (ankle) sidelined and Jason Pinkston (ankle) on short-term IR. Cousins is going to get embarrassed in Week 2 by Haloti Ngata and friends. He committed four penalties in Week 1.

The Browns are expected to start Oniel Cousins at right guard Week 1.

Thanks to high-ankle sprains sustained by both Shawn Lauvao and Jason Pinkston, the Browns are desperate inside. Cousins has started just five games in his NFL career, and just one at guard. It's a concern for an otherwise underrated unit.

Browns re-signed G/T Oniel Cousins.

Claimed off waivers from the Ravens in August, Cousins got into just four games last season. He won't be guaranteed a roster spot in 2012.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 05:28:00 PM

Browns claimed G/T Oniel Cousins off waivers from the Ravens.

The Browns have pass protection problems at right tackle with Tony Pashos, and that isn't an issue Cousins will solve. He's still a worthwhile pickup for Cleveland, which lacks talented depth on the line. Cousins also has some experience at guard, though he won't push Shaun Lauvao out of the lineup.

Ravens waived G/T Oniel Cousins.

Just three years removed from being a third-round pick, Cousins could never get it together at tackle, and obviously didn't show enough at guard during training camp. His leash grew much shorter when the Ravens signed LT Bryant McKinnie, whose presence will likely shift Michael Oher back to right tackle and Jah Reid to the bench.
Sat, Aug 27, 2011 10:21:00 AM

Coach Jim Harbaugh said that Oniel Cousins' move to guard is permanent.

Cousins could never crack the lineup at tackle, so perhaps he'll be able to use his 6'4/315-pound body better inside. If the Ravens move Marshal Yanda to their troublesome right tackle spot, Cousins could step in as a starting right guard.
Mon, Aug 22, 2011 11:01:00 AM

Ravens OT Oniel Cousins kicked inside to guard for Saturday's practice.

"Maybe he is suited for that position," coach John Harbaugh said. "We'll find out." They might as well. Cousins started the preseason opener and took his usual beating at right tackle. They should know by now that Cousins is not the answer, so third-rounder Jah Reid will get as many reps as possible.
Sun, Aug 14, 2011 02:48:00 PM

Ravens reserve OT Oniel Cousins will enter training camp on the roster bubble.

Cousins says his "goal is to be the starting right tackle," but concedes he "said that last year." The No. 99 pick in the 2008 draft simply hasn't panned out, earning just four career starts and struggling in all of them. If rookie Jah Reid beats him out, Cousins will be looking for a new home come September.

Ravens extended restricted free agent RT Oniel Cousins an original pick tender.

Cousins, a third-round pick in 2008, will be safe at this level after continuing to struggle in spot appearances last season. The Ravens would've liked Cousins to step up as a starting right tackle after Jared Gaither's injury, but his shoddy pass and run blocking forced RG Marshal Yanda outside.
Mon, Feb 28, 2011 03:46:00 PM

Oniel Cousins has moved into the starting lineup at right tackle, pushing Marshal Yanda to right guard.

Cousins is atop the official depth chart this week, so it looks like more than just a one-week move. Chris Chester has lost his right guard job as the Ravens attempt to fix a rushing attack ranked just 31st in the league in yards per carry at 3.6.
Tue, Dec 14, 2010 06:37:00 PM

Ravens RT Oniel Cousins is expected to start Monday night against the Jets in place of injured RT Jared Gaither (back).

The team doesn't sound overly concerned, as RT Tony Moll is also available should Cousins struggle. Ray Rice remains a strong RB1 play.
Sat, Sep 11, 2010 08:30:00 AM

Ravens RT Oniel Cousins (concussion) has resumed practicing fully.

Baltimore won't have a good right tackle situation until Jared Gaither returns, but Cousins can only be an upgrade over third-stringer Tony Moll, who was filling in. The Ravens open against the Jets on Monday Night Football.
