Ravens agree to deal with veteran tackle Mark LeVoir

August 20, 2011 | Luke Jones

Looking to boost their depth at offensive tackle, the Ravens agreed to terms with former New England Patriots lineman Mark LeVoir on Saturday, according to the AP.

The 29-year-old lineman made two starts in 32 games over the last three seasons in New England. LeVoir was released by the Patriots earlier this week.

Baltimore finds itself thin at the tackle position after they moved fourth-year lineman Oniel Cousins inside to guard after an ineffective performance against the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Rookie Jah Reid is currently the starting right tackle and played the entire game against Kansas City on Friday night.

At 6-foot-7 and 310 pounds, LeVoir began his career with stints in Chicago and St. Louis before landing with the Patriots in 2008. The former Notre Dame product finds an ideal opportunity in Baltimore after playing in only six games with the Patriots last season.
