The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports free agent LB Zachary Orr (neck) has yet to be medically cleared.

Orr retired shortly after last season due to a neck issue, but he quickly announced his desire to return to playing after receiving second and third opinions. Unfortunately for him, it's going to be tough to gain clearance from an NFL club during this day and age. The Dolphins are looking for linebacker help.

Free agent LB Zachary Orr (neck) is visiting the Texans on Monday.

After retiring because of a neck condition in January, Orr reversed course and decided to continue his career. He has already met with the Colts, Jets, and Lions, but all three decided to pass. Orr could have trouble gaining clearance from team medical staffs.

Colts team reporter Kevin Bowen doesn't expect the team to sign free agent LB Zachary Orr.

The Colts have an obvious need at linebacker and brought Orr in for a visit late last month. The team has had ample time to go over his medical records—Orr retired in January due to what was originally thought to be a career-threatening neck injury—but as of now there's been no movement on that front. The 25-year-old also met with the Lions and Jets last month, though obviously nothing came of those visits.

Free agent LB Zachary Orr called his decision to retire in January "premature."

At the time of his retirement, Orr had only spoken to one doctor about his neck condition. After being urged to get a second opinion, Orr learned that his injury wasn't career-threatening. "After people found out I only went to one doctor, they were telling me, ‘You’ve got to go get a second opinion.' It was kind of eating at me," he said. "Obviously, I wanted to play ball. I love ball. I went ahead and did that." Orr has already met with the Lions and Colts and will head to East Rutherford to visit the Jets on Saturday.

Free agent LB Zachary Orr is visiting the Colts on Friday.

Nobody has a busier schedule in the NFL than Orr at the moment. He wrapped up his visit with the Lions early Friday morning, is heading to Indianapolis now, and will then travel to meet with Gang Green on Saturday. Colts DC Ted Monachino was the Ravens' LBs coach for Orr's first two seasons in the league.

Free agent LB Zachary Orr will visit the Jets on Saturday.

Orr is wrapping up his visit with the Lions on Friday morning, and by all accounts, everything has checked out well medically. The Lions told Orr's agent that "everything looks great," so it sounds like this comeback has a chance to get off the ground if Orr gains final clearance. He has several more visits to make.

Free agent LB Zach Orr's player rep says the Ravens are conflicted about whether they should re-sign him as he attempts a comeback from his neck condition.

"There are a lot of variables that the Ravens are having to deal with," Orr's rep said. "There’s a lot of internal consternation. One side of the line fighting to get Zach Orr back, and another line saying we need to move on." The agent claims he's heard from 15 teams. Orr is still only 25, but will struggle to find someone to clear him. Teams don't want to be seen as pushing the envelope in an era where player safety is supposedly a greater concern.
Thu, Jun 29, 2017 04:26:00 PM

Free agent LB Zachary Orr will visit the Lions on Thursday.

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, as many as eight teams have reached out to Orr since he announced Wednesday morning that he's determined to play this season after suddenly retiring in January due to a neck condition. Teams will want to do extensive medical checks on Orr and clear him before signing him.

Retired ILB Zachary Orr announced on Wednesday that he's contemplating a comeback.

Orr retired back in January after being diagnosed with a neck condition. The 25-year-old was said to be nearing an extension with the Ravens shortly before he was suddenly forced to retire. We're not sure what has changed medically with his situation, but Orr is determined to "play ball" this season. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora doesn't expect the Ravens to take the gamble on Orr's neck and bring him back. Getting cleared by a team will be Orr's biggest obstacle.
Wed, Jun 28, 2017 09:12:00 AM

Ravens ILB Zachary Orr is retiring from the NFL after three seasons.

Just yesterday, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the Ravens had made "considerable progress" on a contract extension with Orr, as the former UDFA's deal was set to expire. The 24-year-old started 15 games last season, before missing Week 17 with a herniated disc in his neck. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the injury is why Orr is walking away. The Ravens tried to "talk him out of it" but were apparently unsuccessful.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens have made "considerable progress" on an extension with restricted free agent ILB Zach Orr.

A 2014 UDFA, Orr made the first 15 starts of his career in 2016, tallying 132 tackles, three picks and a forced fumble as a three-down player. He graded out poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings as both a run stopper and pass rusher, but the Ravens obviously liked what they saw on film. Orr turns 25 in June.
Thu, Jan 19, 2017 10:25:00 PM

Ravens placed ILB Zach Orr (neck) on injured reserve.

Orr was already ruled out for Week 17. He had a break out year as a first-time starter, leading the Ravens with 132 tackles and finishing behind only Eric Weddle with three interceptions. Orr should be fully healthy for Baltimore's offseason program.

Ravens ILB Zachary Orr worked with the first-team defense throughout the offseason program.

A 2014 UDFA, Orr is competing with Arthur Brown for the starting spot opposite C.J. Mosley. Orr has always been considered the favorite, and he did not give up that position in OTAs or minicamp. Unless he face plants in training camp, Orr should open the season in the starting lineup.

Ravens MLB Zach Orr is the favorite to replace Daryl Smith.

Baltimore didn’t add any inside linebackers in the draft, leaving Orr and Arthur Brown to compete next to C.J. Mosley. A 2014 UDFA, Orr has been mostly a special teamer, but played increased snaps at the end of last year and had solid PFF grades. The Ravens haven’t ruled out signing a veteran if Orr struggles.
