Fluker Finds Fresh Flock
Former Alabama offensive lineman D.J. Fluker was released from the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Today, Fluker found a new flock to fly with, the Baltimore Ravens. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport the two sides are nearing an agreement that would bring the veteran offensive lineman to Baltimore.
The Ravens will be Fluker's fourth NFL team after spending time with the San Diego Chargers, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks. The Ravens bring Fluker in to help fill the gap left by Marshall Yanda's retirement. The Ravens spent two draft picks this past weekend on the offensive line, Fluker's addition further solidifies the unit heading into 2020.
Baltimore led the NFL in rushing in 2019, out-rushing the second place team by nearly 1,000 yards. In a pass-first league, the Ravens are the definition of counter culture. Fluker's road grating style will help the team maintain its identity going into 2020.
According to the popular Twitter account @BamaProUpdates Fluker will be the sixth Crimson Tide alum on the Ravens.
