Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Monday that Michael Oher and Michael Roos will open the season as the Titans' starting tackles.
Oher will play the right side, with Roos on the left. This officially makes No. 11 overall pick Taylor Lewan a backup. Based on his performance with the Ravens, Oher is likely to be a major liability, both in run and pass blocking. Sep 1 - 4:46 PM

The Nashville Tennessean believes new Titans RT Michael Oher will have to compete with No. 11 overall pick Taylor Lewan in training camp.

This is the same Oher the Titans gave $9.5 million guaranteed in March. Beat writer Jim Wyatt is just stating the obvious, but it's worth passing along nonetheless. Wyatt "fully expects" each of Oher, Lewan and LT Michael Roos to remain on the roster come Week 1. The Titans have had a baffling offseason.
May 26 - 2:52 PM

Titans signed RT Michael Oher to a four-year, $20 million contract with $9.5 million guaranteed.

We have to believe Ozzie Newsome is chuckling at this one. Oher, 28 in May, never got better during his five-year stint in Baltimore, struggling mightily in spot duty at left tackle and performing at a well-below-average clip on the right side. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 68 tackle in 2013, among 76 qualifiers. Oher was a dead-last 76th in run blocking with eight sacks allowed. He'll replace David Stewart at right tackle in Nashville. For the second consecutive offseason, the Titans are having a head-scratching free agency period under scuffling GM Ruston Webster. (At least they "landed" Charlie Whitehurst.)

Free agent RT Michael Oher is visiting the Titans.

It's Oher's first known action of free agency. The former No. 23 overall pick of the 2009 draft is a classic case of a player whose name is bigger than his game. Oher can't play left tackle and even struggles on the right side. He's also a penalty machine. The Titans would be better off with Byron Stingily at right tackle. If Oher leaves his Tennessee visit, he'll then take a trip to Oakland.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens have yet to begin contract talks with free agent RT Michael Oher.

Per reporter Aaron Wilson, the Ravens aren't expected to talk with Oher until they reach a resolution with fellow free agent Eugene Monroe. It's safe to say the Ravens aren't afraid to let Oher walk. He was a bottom-10 tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season.
Mar 3 - 4:54 PM

According to the Baltimore Sun, re-signing free agent RT Michael Oher "isn't a priority" for the Ravens, and he's "probably seen his last days in Baltimore."

A rare first-round whiff by GM Ozzie Newsome, Oher has been a below-average starter since entering the league in 2009. Across 16 starts in 2013, the 27-year-old graded out 68th among 76 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' tackle ratings. Oher may have to settle for a one-year, "prove-it" deal in free agency.
Feb 16 - 12:50 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens are "unlikely" to make impending free agent RT Michael Oher among the highest-paid right tackles in the league.

The Ravens are much more interested in locking up LT Eugene Monroe, who is also set to become a free agent in March. Oher, the No. 23 overall pick in the 2009 draft, has shown he can't play left tackle and even struggles mightily on the right side. He's taken five penalties and has surrendered seven sacks and 33 hurries, while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 68 tackle out of 78 qualifiers. Oher will likely seek $6 million annually but may not find it.

Ravens RT Michael Oher (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 2.

Oher participated fully in practice this week and won't end up missing any time after leaving the season opener with an ankle injury. He'll likely be playing at less than 100 percent, but is healthy enough to start Sunday against the Browns.

Ravens RT Michael Oher (ankle) is practicing in full Wednesday.

Oher was able to practice despite calling his current ankle injury the "worst of his career." He remains questionable for Week 2 against the Browns.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 02:39:00 PM

Ravens RT Michael Oher characterized his sprained right ankle as the "worst of his entire football career."

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Saturday that Oher is "not expected to miss significant time," but it's clear the injury is more serious than originally thought. He's looking questionable for Week 2. Oher didn't rule himself out for Sunday's game against the Browns and is hoping to return to practice this week.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora confirms RT Michael Oher (ankle) is not expected to miss significant time.

Oher left Thursday night's game with a sprained right ankle, but managed to avoid anything serious. He remains day-to-day. The Ravens are hoping the extra time off will allow Oher to return in Week 2 against the Browns.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 07:09:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on NFL Insiders Friday that RT Michael Oher escaped Thursday's game with a routine ankle sprain.

Schefter suspects Oher will play in Week 2, with his chances increased by the fact the Ravens have extra time off following a Thursday opener. Baltimore's offensive line play declined noticeably with Oher out of the game, and replaced by rookie Rick Wagner. The 0-1 Ravens will host the Browns in Week 2.

Ravens RT Michael Oher was forced from Thursday evening's opener against the Broncos with a sprained right ankle, and is questionable to return.

Oher got rolled up by teammate Marshal Yanda. Running around on the sideline, Oher looked like he might return, but for now rookie Ricky Wagner is in the game at right tackle.

Michael Oher said he prefers to play right tackle over left tackle.

"I've flip-flopped back and forth ever since I got here ... but I think right tackle is my best position," Oher said. "I think I'm better over there and the team is better." He's right about that last part. But no matter which side he's played, Oher has given up far too many pressures and taken too many penalties. Entering the final year of his contract, Oher could use a big season to cash in like Colts RT Gosder Cherilus did in March -- five years and $34.5 million with $15.5 million guaranteed.
Sat, Aug 3, 2013 06:03:00 PM

Ravens RT Michael Oher triggered an escalator in his rookie contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3.085 million to $3.785 million.

After winning the Super Bowl, Oher is now entering the final year of his contract. Back in October, it was reported that the Ravens had held "preliminary" extension talks. With Oher bouncing between left and right tackle over the years, it could complicate the discussions. Left tackles are valued more, so, in turn, they are paid more. Oher's versatility can't be overlooked, though. Joe Flacco will certainly dominate contract headlines this offseason, but Oher won't be far behind as a solid pass protector.
