Possible free agent targets

Allen Robinson: Coming off a torn ACL, the Jacksonville Jaguars have important decision to make regarding Robinson. They can franchise tag him but that’s a risk given his injury history. If Robinson hits the free agent market, he’s a young and talented option the Ravens can pursue. He’s just two years off a 1,400 yard and 14 touchdown season. Robinson’s size is desperately needed in the Ravens’ offense.

Paul RichardsonThe Ravens have shown their interest in Jarvis Landry but his price tag could warrant $13-14 million a year. If that’s not plausible, Paul Richardson is a cheaper option the Ravens could look to. He broke out in the final year of his rookie contract with the Seahawks and finished with 703 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Richardson is a viable option out of the slot and would fit nicely into the check-down scheme.

Danny AmendolaLike I said before, Ozzie Newsome can’t seem to stay away from veteran free agent receivers. One of Tom Brady‘s favorite targets could be an option for the Ravens. Amendola has battled injuries throughout his career and that’s a concern, but he had one of his best seasons in 2017. He notched the 100-yard mark in two of the Patriots’ three playoff games this season and while 32-years old, is a veteran receiver that could mesh with Joe Flacco.

Marqise Lee: If Allen Robinson does stay with the Jaguars, the Ravens could target another young wide receiver on their roster. Marqise Lee put together two solid seasons as of recent and could be a complementary receiving option for the Ravens next season. Lee won’t break the bank in terms of a contract and he can get you 700-800 yards a season. The Ravens are desperate for that kind of production after what they got from their receiving core in 2017.
