Gino Gradkowski is the frontrunner to replace the retired Matt Birk at center, but bringing in a veteran interior lineman to provide depth and competition has been the Ravens' M.O. In 2011, it was Andre Gurode. Last season, it was Bobbie Williams. Will the Ravens do it again this year? If they do, they should consider Boothe, who started every game at left guard for the New York Giants last season. Before that, he was a part-time starter for most of his career, though he has experience at all three interior spots.
