Depending on what they do with Eugene Monroe and/or pending free agent Kelechi Osemele, the Ravens could be in the market for a left tackle this offseason. And one they are familiar with just became a free agent.

The Chicago Bears announced today that they have released veteran left tackle Jermon Bushrod, a two-time Pro Bowl selection who was also a four-year starter at Towson University.

Bushrod, 31, played the past three seasons with the Bears after spending his first six NFL seasons with the New Orleans Saints. He was due to make $6.4 million this season, the fourth year of the five-year, $35.965 million contract that he signed with the Bears in 2013.

Bushrod dealt with a shoulder injury and started just four games in 2015, ultimately losing his starting job to Charles Leno, a former seventh-round pick.

It's not immediately clear if the the Ravens have interest in Bushrod. However, they are looking to add more depth at left tackle this offseason and they could be looking to add a potential starter if they decide to move on from Monroe, who has struggled to stay healthy.
