Ravens add 12 year vet Williams along O-Line

The Ravens made a depth move Friday, acquiring 12-year veteran guard Bobbie Williams.

Williams, 36, spent the last eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He started nine games for the Bengals in 2011, and missed the last three contests after fracturing his ankle.

Williams will likely be another intriguing piece to the puzzle that is the Ravens’ situation at left guard-which includes rookie Kelechi Osemele, 2nd-year man Jah Reid, and Williams.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh had some interaction with Williams in Philadelphia after Williams was taken in the 2nd round by the Eagles in the 2000 NFL Draft.

“Bobbie is a guy who has been in the league for a long time,” head coach John Harbaugh stated. “We’ve played against him, and we like his style of play and his demeanor as a person and as a player. We’re excited to have him as a member of our team.”

Out of 151 career games, Williams has started 130 of them.
