One man’s trade is another’s free agent opportunity.
Former Oklahoma offensive tackle Adrian Ealy on Saturday signed a free agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens, where he’ll have a chance to replace Ravens Pro Bowler Orlando Brown.
Ealy, a fourth-year junior at OU last year, left school for the NFL Draft with the option of returning, but went undrafted.
Brown started for the Sooners from 2015-17, and Ealy was a two-year starter in Norman from 2019-20.
Brown was a third-round pick of the Ravens in 2018 and became an immediate starter. He also made the Pro Bowl roster in 2019 and 2020. He was traded to the Chiefs last week for Kansas City’s first-round pick in 2021, plus third- and fourth-rounders this year and a fifth-round pick in 2022.
