Michael Oher who is famous for the movie Blindside is available for teams to pick him up after being released this week by the Tennessee Titans. While Oher battled a few injuries this year, he is still a very solid offensive lineman. Oher played with the Ravens for 5 seasons winning a Super Bowl at tackle. He will be 29 at the start of the new season, and could be a very solid blindside tackle for a team. Here are four teams that we think could express interest in Oher.
Pro Football Focus, a football analytic site, graded him as the 75th tackle out of 84 in the league, which is not great, but he could be an upgrade for these squads.
Carolina Panthers – Panthers tackles Byron Bell (83rd) and Nate Chandler (68th) are decent but they are not the best tackles in the league. Oher would be a major improvement over Bell. It could also give Cam Newton more time.
Denver Broncos – The Broncos had major issues all across their offensive line in 2014. One of their biggest weaknesses was at right tackle, where they were forced to slide All-Pro right guard Louis Vasquez outside and out of his comfort zone. Michael Oher’s natural position is right tackle, and when he’s healthy, he’s one of the best in the business.
