Eric Steinbach (Cleveland)

Steinbach, 31, has played his whole career in the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000000252" title="AFC North" href="/topic/sports/football/afc-north-ORSPT000000252.topic">AFC North</a>, spending four seasons with the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000037" title="Cincinnati Bengals" href="/topic/sports/football/cincinnati-bengals-ORSPT000037.topic">Cincinnati Bengals</a> and five with the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000038" title="Cleveland Browns" href="/topic/sports/football/cleveland-browns-ORSPT000038.topic">Cleveland Browns</a>. He once commanded a seven-year, $49.5 million free agent deal so there's little question that he has ability. But is he healthy enough to be counted on? Steinbach, who was a cap casualty by the Browns, missed all of last season after undergoing back surgery. His agent, Jack Bechta, told the Cleveland Plan Dealer that he should be fully cleared to perform all football-related tasks by April 15. Until then, the Ravens are probably unlikely to engage in serious negotiations with him.
