Spotrac projects impending free agent Rick Wagner to become the second-highest paid right tackle in the league.
Lane Johnson currently tops the list at $11.25 million per year, but he is being paid like a future left tackle. Bryan Bulaga is the highest paid true right tackle at $6.75 million and is closely followed by Mitchell Schwartz, who signed a five-year, $33-million deal including $20.7 million guaranteed with the Chiefs last offseason. Schwartz's deal should be the starting point for Wagner's negotiations. Feb 23 - 10:00 AM

The Ravens are expected to prioritize re-signing NT Brandon Williams over fellow free agent RT Rick Wagner.

Per the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec, "there seems to be a confidence level among team officials" that they'll find a "serviceable and cheaper replacement" for Wagner. Wagner, 27, enjoyed a bounce-back 2016 campaign following a rough 2015, particularly excelling in pass protection. Wagner figures to command a contract in the same range as Chiefs RT Mitchell Schwartz, who landed a five-year, $33 million deal last offseason.
Feb 12 - 11:35 PM

The Ravens aren't expected to re-sign impending free agent RT Rick Wagner.

Wagner just finished out his rookie contract. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 pass-blocking right tackle this season and has missed just two games in four seasons. Wagner was PFF's No. 1 overall right tackle in 2014. The Ravens wouldn't pay LG Kelechi Osemele last offseason and don't appear prepared to do so with Wagner. He'll likely command $6-7 million per year.

RT Rick Wagner (concussion) is expected to miss the Ravens' regular season finale against the Bengals in Week 17.

He's likely headed to injured reserve. Wagner suffered a concussion in the second half of Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. James Hurst took over for him at right tackle and should draw the start there in Week 17. Wagner played reasonably well this year, grading out as PFF's No. 21 tackle out of 75 qualifiers. He'll be a free agent this offseason.

Ravens placed RT Rick Wagner (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Wagner's injury is of the dreaded "Lisfranc" variety. Wagner and LT Eugene Monroe both went down during Sunday's ugly loss at Houston. That leaves the entire offensive line in flux heading into Sunday's must-win regular season finale against the Browns. Wagner was a top-13 tackle in PFF's grades this season and started all 15 games. Despite the complicated nature of his injury, he should be ready for training camp.

Wagner has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 right tackle in a breakout sophomore season.

Rick Wagner is the Ravens' starting right tackle.

Wagner is a former high school basketball player and receiver. He went to Wisconsin as a tight end but became a tackle after he grew into the position. Wagner is obviously a plus athlete. Jah Reid and Ryan Jensen were supposed to compete with Wagner for the starting job, but didn't bring much to the table. Wagner is a question mark, but can't be any worse than Michael Oher.
