The most significant veteran free agent addition is wide out Mike Wallace. The Ravens signed Wallace to add a deep threat to their game. When Wallace is in the game, the defense has to respect his speed.
Wallace has already exceeded his 2015 season production in Minnesota and doubled his touchdowns over last season with four after just 9 games. The former third round pick out of Ole Miss signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract with Baltimore and has been a bright spot in a struggling Ravens’ offense.
Along with filling a critical need in the passing game, the 30 year old has taken it upon himself to mentor the team’s younger receivers Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore. Wallace has stated that he wants to finish his NFL career with the Baltimore Ravens. He couldn’t have come at a better time. Although Baltimore’s passing offense was ranked eight in net passing yards last season, the team was in desperate need of new weapons in the receiving core.
