Falsity News: BREAKING: Kelechi Osemele Re-Signs With Baltimore Ravens

The writing seemed to be on the wall for the future of Kelechi Osemele, after the Baltimore Ravens re-signed longtime Guard Marshall Yanda. Osemele was likely a goner in the minds of the fans, until Coach John Harbaugh said that the Ravens made 'an aggressive offer' to keep Osemele.

Well, it looks as if Osemele has accepted that offer, for 5 years 50 million. This is what I'd like to be saying, but if you didn't read the headline 'Falsity News' you would know that this isn't true. But, now that you're all here, let's talk about how great this signing WOULD be.

First and foremost, the Ravens would keep a quality young player entering his playing prime and should solidify the LT position which hasn't been stable since the great Jonathon Ogden retired.

Secondly, the Ravens could finally get rid of oft-injured dead-weight Eugene Monroe. Nothing against, Monroe, he's half-way decent when healthy, but hardly a star player. With Osemele the Ravens would likely have one of the top offensive lines in the league with Osemele-Urschel/Wagner-Zuttah-Yanda-Wagner.

The third and final reason to make this move, would be that the Ravens could focus their first overall pick in the draft (#6 overall) to take the top defensive talent. Someone like Jalen Ramsey, Joey Bosa, Deforest Buckner, Vernon Haregraves, etc. Instead of someone like say Ronnie Stanley. Not that the Ravens would take Stanley anyway, but with a hole at LT they might have to consider it.

When it comes down to it, the decision is all on Osemele. I'm sure he would get the most money elsewhere, but if wants a better shot at legacy and championships, I say he's best suited to stay in Baltimore.
