The Baltimore Ravens are scheduled to work out veteran guard Eric Steinbach on Tuesday CBS Sports is reporting.
Steinbach, who was cut by the Browns in March after refusing to take a pay cut missed the entire 2011 season due to a back injury.
From 2003 to 2006, Steinbach, a second-round pick in 2003 by Cincinnati out of Iowa, started all but two regular season games for the Bengals over four seasons. On March 2, 2007, (the first day of the year’s NFL Free Agency period) the Browns signed Steinbach to a 7-year, $49.5 million contract (of which $17 million is guaranteed), making him at the time one of the highest paid offensive lineman in the league. On December 18, 2007, Steinbach was named as a first alternate for the 2008 Pro Bowl.
The Ravens are looking to add depth and competition for the left guard position during training camp. If healthy Steinbach could challenge another former Bengal Bobbie Williams for the left guard spot.
