The trade means rookie first-round pick Luke Joeckel will move from right tackle to left tackle, the position he played at Texas A&M. Only nine of former general manager Gene Smith's 24 draft picks remain with the team.
Monroe, who is in the final year of his contract, told O'Halloran and the Associated Press that he was looking forward to a fresh start and that he had no ill feelings toward the Jaguars or Caldwell.
While the trade is certainly beneficial for the Jaguars, it's also a good deal for the Ravens, writes ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley. Their offensive line has struggled and Monroe is a significant upgrade from Bryant McKinnie.
