At approximately 1 p.m. today, rookie offensive tackle Michael Oher pulled up to the Best Western in Westminster, Md., met with Ravens vice president of football administration Pat Moriarty and put his John Hancock on his first NFL contract.

About 50 times.

These contracts are thick. I saw it with my own eyes. For an offensive lineman, there are between 20-30 pages of verbiage to pore through. Even more for quarterbacks.

The entire process took about 30 minutes. But never fear, BaltimoreRavens.com got the exclusive footage. We’ll post it later.

Anyway, Oher looked fit and ready to play. It’s evident he’s been working hard since he left Ravens headquarters after the last OTA.

The 23rd-overall selection has a busy day. He immediately went from signing to grab his playbook and a pair of cleats to McDaniel College for his physical and conditioning test.

He has a press conference scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
