It makes perfect sense for the Baltimore Ravens to bring Zuttah back, as their offensive line is in dire straits. With the loss of both Alex Lewis (shoulder) and rookie Nico Siragusa (ACL) to season-ending injuries, as well as the retirement of John Urschel, the Ravens offensive line is in need, and Zuttah fills that need well.
Zuttah went to college at Rutgers University and played alongside former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. While at Rutgers, Zuttah earned two first-team All-Big East nominations in 2006 and 2007.
Zuttah was drafted in the third round of the 2008 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and played for them from 2008 to 2013. In March of 2014, the Buccaneers traded Zuttah to the Baltimore Ravens for the Ravens’ fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Zuttah started all 16 games for the Ravens in 2014, but only played nine games in 2015 until he was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral.
Signing Zuttah is the second move the Ravens have made this offseason to bolster their offensive line, their other being the signing of former Oakland Raiders tackle Austin Howard.
