Ravens sign offensive tackle Mark LeVoir

The Ravens have agreed to terms with former Patriots offensive tackle Mark LeVoir, who has appeared in 32 games over a five-year NFL career.

Signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bears back in 2006, LeVoir started two games for New England in 2008, and has appeared in 16 games without a start in the last two seasons. He was released by the Patriots after reportedly refusing to take a pay cut.

The LeVoir signing, which was first reported by the Carroll County Times, gives the Ravens another option at right tackle should rookie Jah Reid prove that he's not quite ready to start Week 1 against the Steelers.

With Oniel Cousins now having been moved over from tackle to guard, the Ravens needed a proven tackle that could add depth and serve as a serviceable starter if necessary.

LeVoir might not be the only new lineman that takes the field at Ravens practice tomorrow; word is the team could also be close to signing another big body along the offensive line.
