Michael Oher says 'The Blind Side' has hurt his NFL career

Michael Oher hasn't had an easy go of it since leaving Baltimore.

Oher started every game for the Ravens for five seasons, but in 2014 the team declined re-sign the 23rd overall pick in the 2009 draft.

He started 11 games for the Tennessee Titans last year, but again wasn't invited back. He's signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers and is projected to start at left tackle, yet questions...
