The Ravens have added another name to the right guard competition.
According to a report from Ian Rapoport, the Ravens added D.J. Fluker to a one-year deal. A first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Ravens signed the 6-foot-5, 342-pound guard to add to the interior line.

Fluker most recently played in Seattle as a right guard, where he played in 14 games in 2019 - all starts. He spent time with the Giants and Chargers before that.
The eight-year pro is expected to compete with Ben Powers and new draft picks Tyre Phillips and Ben Bredeson for the right guard spot vacated by Marshal Yanda over the offseason.
Fluker, 29, announced he was released by the Seahawks on Sunday after the team drafted Damien Lewis of LSU in the third round.
Baltimore now has some experience to add to its right guard position battle in camp to go along with Powers, a second-year pro, and the rookies the team recently added. With Matt Skura's knee injury and the uncertainty around the situation, the Ravens could've used a veteran option on the inside.
