Free agent OT Eugene Monroe announced his retirement after seven seasons in the NFL.
In his retirement letter linked below, Monroe cites health concerns as one of the main reasons for his decision. "The last 18 years have been full of traumatic injuries to both my head and my body," Monroe wrote. "That’s why one of the first things I’m planning to do is to go to the doctor ... I’m going to get brain and body imaging scans, mental health assessments — anything that might help me get a handle on the state of my body and my mind." Monroe added he will continue to be a "vocal advocate" for medical marijuana research, especially as it pertains to treating CTE. Only 29, Monroe is not the first and certainly will not be the last to hang up their cleats early because of head trauma concerns. Jul 21 - 9:37 AM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent OT Eugene Monroe plans to retire.

Monroe flirted with several teams after being released by the Ravens in June, so this decision is not due to a lack of interest. The No. 8 overall pick of the Jaguars in the 2009 draft, Monroe was acquired by the Ravens midway through the 2013 season. He signed a five-year, $37.5 million extension to stick with Baltimore, but injuries limited him to just 17 games over the next two years. A vocal proponent of the NFL allowing medical marijuana for pain management, Monroe might feel he can do more good from outside of the league.

Free agent OT Eugene Monroe is committed to taking his time as he searches for a new team.

Monroe says he's "very respectful" of the teams that expressed early interest, but that he won't rush a decision. "We’ve been in discussions with a few teams, but this is very new," Monroe said. "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." That basically translates to "offer me more money." Monroe's market should kick into gear as camp gets closer.

NJ.com reports free agent OT Eugene Monroe is still in play for the Giants.

Monroe would have to play right tackle in the Big Apple, and seems likely to exhaust his potential options on the left side before seriously considering the G-Men. Monroe drew a flurry of preliminary interest when he hit the open market earlier this month, but it's been mostly silent over the past 10 days. With camp a month away, Monroe can take his time and use what little leverage he has.

The Seahawks aren’t expected to sign free agent LT Eugene Monroe.

Multiple reports have linked Monroe to Seattle, but they only want him at their price. Monroe is targeting $5M-plus annually despite getting cut from Baltimore. The Seattle Times expects the Seahawks to go into the season with their current offensive line.
Jun 25 - 8:10 PM

ESPN New York reports free agent Eugene Monroe is open to playing right tackle.

A previous report said Monroe turned down the Giants because he only wants to play left tackle. With over a month until training camp, Monroe is taking his time before signing. The 49ers, Panthers, and Seattle have all been linked to Monroe.
Jun 17 - 8:06 PM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent LT Eugene Monroe turned down an offer from the Giants to play right tackle and isn't willing to play the position.

Monroe is in "no rush" to sign now that OTAs and minicamps are over, leaving five weeks until training camps open. But the 29-year-old is adamant at staying on the left side. Cole mentions the Seahawks and Panthers as options for Monroe, specifically if Carolina wants to move Michael Oher to right tackle. After signing Oher to an extension Friday, we doubt that's the case. Monroe's best fit right now from a position and scheme standpoint would be Seattle.
Jun 17 - 12:24 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the 49ers have "preliminary interest" in free agent Eugene Monroe, and that the Seahawks have "discussed him."

Anderson also reports that Monroe's "preference" is to stay at left tackle. It's a good thing it's only his preference, and not demand, as right tackle is a distinct possibility. The Giants appear to be in the lead for Monroe's services. He would be in the mix on the blindside in New York, though the job could still fall to Ereck Flowers. Seattle has by far the biggest need of the three teams mentioned.
Jun 16 - 1:57 PM

The New York Daily News confirms the Giants are trying to sign free agent Eugene Monroe.

It's not the least bit surprising after the Giants engaged in trade talks with the Ravens prior to Wednesday's release. The G-Men have the weakest right side of the offensive line in the league. They could kick Ereck Flowers over to shore up right tackle, or ask Monroe to play the position, bookending LT Flowers. A source familiar with Monroe's plans told the NY Daily News he is in "no rush" to sign with a team, but the Giants believe they have a "decent chance" of landing Monroe now that he's an unrestricted free agent.
Jun 15 - 11:22 PM

Ravens released LT Eugene Monroe.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Ravens were talking a Monroe trade with the Giants, but the deal fell through, and Baltimore has decided to release the eight-year veteran. The G-Men have an obvious need with replacement-talent veteran Marshall Newhouse currently manning right tackle and second-year LT Ereck Flowers coming off a bad pass-protecting season. Schefter mentions the Giants, Chargers, and Seahawks as possible landing spots for Monroe, who lost his job in Baltimore after the Ravens drafted LT Ronnie Stanley at No. 6 overall. Monroe has missed 15 games due to injury over the past two seasons.
Jun 15 - 3:31 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the "expectation" is the Ravens will have made a decision on LT Eugene Monroe by the end of the day Thursday.

Per RapSheet, the move could even come down sometime Wednesday. At least by the end of the week, Monroe should be out of Baltimore and looking for his next opportunity. If the Ravens are going to trade him, they're unlikely to get much more than a conditional late-rounder in return. Monroe is coming off extensive shoulder surgery and has missed 15 games the past two years.
Jun 15 - 9:09 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh admitted the team is trying to trade LT Eugene Monroe, and said the situation is in GM Ozzie Newsome's hands.

Monroe is being held out of practice until his status is resolved. The Baltimore Sun believes it's "clear" Monroe won't be back with the team. Monroe's status has been murky since the Ravens selected Ronnie Stanley with the No. 6 overall pick. The Ravens evidently don't want to mess with RT Ricky Wagner's success, making Monroe the odd man out. Monroe was once a dominant player, but has had back-to-back seasons interrupted by injury.
Jun 14 - 6:01 PM

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) has been medically cleared to play.

Monroe announced the news on his Twitter page. He required shoulder surgery after being placed on I.R. last year and will now compete with No. 6 overall pick Ronnie Stanley for the left-tackle job. Now that he's healthy, the Ravens could also look to trade Monroe, paving the way for Stanley on the blind side.
Jun 8 - 12:40 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport doesn't expect the Ravens to release LT Eugene Monroe.

According to RapSheet, Monroe (shoulder) is still injured, and the Ravens could slide No. 6 overall pick Ronnie Stanley inside to guard. That all makes some sense, but when asked about Monroe after picking Stanley, the Ravens declined to comment. The writing has been on the wall that Baltimore doesn't trust Monroe to stay on the field after he's missed 16 games the past two years.
Apr 29 - 12:55 PM

The Ravens declined to comment on LT Eugene Monroe after selecting OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.

Monroe is expected to be traded or released with Stanley now in the fold as the left tackle of the future and most likely the present. Rick Wagner will remain at right tackle. Monroe has missed a combined 16 games over the past two years and has become unreliable on Joe Flacco's blind side. The Ravens can clear $6.5 million in cap space by making Monroe a post-June 1 cut.
