Zuttah will now seek his third team of the offseason. In March, the Ravens decided to waive Zuttah before a last-minute call from the Niners turned the transaction into a trade. At the time, Zuttah was expected to slot in as the team’s starting center.
Apparently, Zuttah did not meet expectations. Daniel Kilgore now profiles as the team’s new starter while Tim Barnes, who previously served as the Rams’ starting center for multiple seasons, should be his primary backup.
Zuttah was the Ravens’ starter in the middle from 2014 through 2016. Last year, the advanced metrics at 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.
