Baltimore Ravens Free Agency: Who’s Left At Wide Receiver?
By Dillon Burke
Free agency has been under way for about a month now, and with the NFL Draft a little over a month away, the Baltimore Ravens are on the brink of doing something they hate doing: go into the draft with a glaring need.
After Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones’ departures to San Francisco and San Diego respectively, Steve Smith Sr. is left without a running mate, and Joe Flacco is left without a legitimate deep threat to chuck the ball to. The Ravens still have a couple promising young receivers in Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown, but the both of them still are a year or two away from proving to be legitimate starters in the NFL.
Free agency pickings are getting slimmer as the days go by. The Ravens have stated that they expect another move to be made before the draft, but they haven’t struck a deal with anyone yet. Ozzie Newsome has a long history of playing it cool in regards to free agency, sticking to the mantra “Right player, right price.”
In any case, it is blatantly obvious that the Ravens do have a need at wide receiver. Various NFL pundits have pegged Baltimore to take one of the many talented pass catchers available in this years draft with the 26th overall pick. But there are still a few quality options left on the market if the Ravens want to secure their depth chart a little more before May 1st. Let’s take a look at the best of who’s left.
