The depths of the New England Patriots’ offensive line got deeper on Wednesday evening.
After acquiring tackle Korey Cunningham from the Arizona Cardinals, the Patriots went between the tackles in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens for versatile guard Jermaine Eluemunor.
Eluemunor, 24, has played in 17 games and made three starts since entering the league as a Ravens fifth-round draft pick in 2017.
The Texas A&M product was named to the Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie team, and began his second NFL season on Baltimore’s practice squad before being elevated to the active roster in October.
Eluemunor played 94 snaps on offense and 43 on special teams for the Ravens in 2018. He’s made two career starts at right guard, with one start at left tackle coming against the Pittsburgh Steelers last November.
With captain David Andrews sidelined for the foreseeable future, New England’s projected interior group includes Ted Karras, Joe Thuney, Shaq Mason and rookie fourth-round pick Hjalte Froholdt.
Baltimore obtained an undisclosed draft selection from New England in the deal for Eluemunor.
