The 28-year-old recently visited with the San Francisco 49ers and he has a couple of other trips planned, according to reports. His agent, however, declined to comment when asked if Baltimore was on his itinerary. Lutui started every game for three straight seasons, but he was demoted into a backup role last year after coming into training camp overweight and out of shape, prompting even more questions about his work ethic. Perhaps this comparison is a stretch, but the Ravens did take a chance on a player with similar question marks last year in McKinnie. They badly needed a veteran left tackle then and they badly need a veteran left guard now. I wouldn't think Lutui is anywhere close to the top of the Ravens' list, but the later this gets, the less options they obviously have.
