A.Q. Shipley, left guard

<b>GS: 9 | GP: 16 | Snaps: 782</b><br><br>
<b>Season in review:</b> A converted center acquired in an offseason trade from the Indianapolis Colts, Shipley emerged as a starter for the Ravens when left offensive guard Kelechi Osemele suffered a season-ending back injury that required surgery. Although guard isn't his natural position and undersized at 6-foot-1, 309 pounds, Shipley earned respect from his teammates and coaches for how he battled  while occasionally struggling against bigger defensive linemen. Shipley didn't grade out highly with a minus-18.1 from Pro Football Focus tied for the lowest mark among the Ravens' offensive linemen.<br><br>
<b>Stat that stands out:</b> 8  --  Shipley led the Ravens in penalties, including four false starts.<br><br>
<b>Outlook for 2014 and beyond:</b> Shipley is under contract for 2014 with a $570,000 base salary. He's expected to compete for the starting center job with Gino Gradkowski and figures into the equation at least as a proven reserve.
