The Baltimore Ravens have said that they do not intend to use the franchise tag on offensive tacke, Eugene Monroe and will now have just a week to agree terms with the player or lose him in free agency.

The Ravens traded their fourth and fifth round draft picks from this year's draft in order to pick up the five year veteran in October.

According to reports this week, the team and player are still some way apart in negotiations with the Ravens apparently unconvinced of Monroe's worth.

Ravens quarterback, Joe Flacco was sacked 48 times last season as the reigning Super Bowl champions struggled on the offensive line.

Because of their struggles, it would seem that re-signing Monroe and making other improvements on the O-line should be their highest priority.

Baltimore have already re-signed defensive veteran, Terrell Suggs and tight end Dennis Pitta but they will face more difficult off-season decisions if they want to avoid the sort of personnel turnover which affected their last season after a string of players left the team for a number of reasons.

Other teams are officially allowed to register their interest in upcoming free agents this coming weekend and can start signing them on March 11th.

The Ravens will need to act quickly if they want to continue with Monroe with the offensive lineman sure to be in high demand.
