UPDATE (8:45am on Thursday) -- Monroe tweeted out a statement on Thursday morning:
"I will not be returning to the Ravens this season. It's never easy moving on - I love Baltimore and its fans - but this is all part of the game. Despite my current uncertainties, one thing is for sure: whatever happens in terms of my professional football career, I will never stop pushing for the League to accept medical cannabis as a viable option for pain management. I will do everything I can to ensure the generations of NFL players after me won't have to resort to harmful and addictive opioids as their only option for pain management. I've been working hard this offseason to recover from my injures. I am cleared to play and excited to get back on the field and compete."
The Ravens on Wednesday released offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, according to multiple reports.
Trade talks reportedly fell through with the Giants, and Monroe and Baltimore could not come to an agreement on a salary.
Monroe, 29, was the 8th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound blocker spent the last three seasons in Baltimore.
The New York Giants, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks may be potential suitors, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
