OWINGS MILLS — Ravens offensive guard Kevin Zeitler was named to the 2024 Pro Bowl as a replacement for Kansas City Chiefs guard Joe Thuney, who is headed to the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers.
It is Zeiter’s first Pro Bowl appearance in his 12 years in the NFL. He is the eighth Ravens player on the AFC roster, joining quarterback Lamar Jackson, kicker Justin Tucker, safety Kyle Hamilton, center Tyler Linderbaum, defensive tackle Justin Madubuike, and linebackers Roquan Smith and Patrick Queen.
Zeitler earned the second-highest pass-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus of all guards this season behind Thuney. Zeitler also helped the Ravens lead the league in rushing, averaging 156.5 yards per game.
Zeitler will be a free agent this offseason but his preference is to stay in Baltimore.
“Obviously, I want to be back as a Baltimore Raven, there is no doubt about that,” he said on Monday as he was clearing out his locker. “I’ve loved my time here, I love the people here, love my teammates here, and I want to keep playing with them. Hopefully, that business side of football can be figured out nice and quick, and we can get that taken care of. But whatever happens, I am ready to roll.”
Zeitler has missed only 11 games during his 12-year career and just four in his three years with the Ravens.
