The Titans released Kelly last month after he had spent five years with the organization. After serving in mostly a swing role through his first four seasons in Tennessee, the 31-year-old had an opportunity to start in 2020. He ultimately started all 16 games, committing only three penalties while appearing in 98-percent of his team’s offensive snaps.
Kelly isn’t the first veteran offensive lineman that the Ravens have gotten a look at, as the Ravens met with with Alejandro Villanueva recently. Later reports indicated that the team wouldn’t be adding any veteran until after the draft, as they’ll have a better understanding of their status at each position. The team could also avoid the compensatory pick formula by waiting until early May.
The Ravens need an offensive tackle after moving Brown to the Chiefs this week. Even if the team addresses the position in the draft, it’d make sense for them to add a veteran; Ronnie Stanley.will return to left tackle after missing most of the 2020 season, and the five-year veteran has yet to appear in all 16 games in a single season.
