Ravens fans likely remember Jensen for his grit and toughness on the gridiron. Three seasons ago, as a member of the Ravens, Jensen unleashed a furious hit on Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso after Alonso delivered a cheap shot to the head of quarterback Joe Flacco.

Jensen, who stands at 6'4", 319 pounds, was drafted by the Ravens in 2013 out of Colorado St-Pueblo.

This season with the Buccaneers, Jensen has started in every game as the center.
