Ravens Trade C Jeremy Zuttah To 49ers

The Ravens have traded center Jeremy Zuttah to the 49ers, according to a team announcement. In the deal, the two teams will swap sixth-round picks. The Ravens will move up 12 picks late in the draft. The Ravens get pick No. 186 from the 49ers and San Francisco takes Baltimore’s pick No. 198. Jeremy Zuttah (vertical)

The Ravens initially planned to release Zuttah, but the Ravens were able to work out a trade instead. This happens from time to time in the NFL – a team notifies a player of his release, word leaks out, and a team receives a phone call from an interested club before the transaction becomes official. Now, the 49ers get Zuttah without having to compete with other interested teams.

Zuttah is not a superstar, but he is a solid center with starting experience. The Rutgers product has been a starter for Baltimore for the last three seasons. In 2016, the advanced numbers Pro Football Focus placed Zuttah as the 13th best center in the league. His 82.7 score was his best showing since his rookie campaign.

    More line depth for swapping a dozen draft locations in the sixth round? Good move.

    Likely to find the 6th round guy you really want at either spot by that late in the draft anyway.

    Which is why it has been common for the better part of a decade to follow up corrections with a *.

  9. A pro bowler was just traded for a swap of sixth round picks. Maybe that should be a red flag for some people. Also, his trade was his best since he was a rookie, also not a good thing. I hope he does well elsewhere but playing next to Marshal Yanda, one of the best guards of the last decade, he did not look good for most of the season.

        The Ravens were middle of the pack in FA money to dole out once they cut guys they couldn’t justify keeping. Even if you are cash strapped, why would you cut a pro bowler? Because until this trade happened, that’s what almost happened.

        Logically that doesn’t make sense if the guy was actually a performer at that level. He isn’t. And most people know that. You can play the cute little “duh” card all you want but teams don’t jettison guys that are currently top caliber players. Consider they just took the exact amount of money they were going to pay Zuttah and paid itmto Brandon Carr. Let that sink in.
