2019 Free Agency: Who’s left for the Baltimore Ravens to sign?
After getting gouged during the legal tampering period of the league’s 2019 Free Agency, the Ravens came back strong on opening day. Who else can they nab?
Every year, teams find themselves losing quality players to Free Agency like clockwork. Whether they are solid or Pro Bowl worthy, guys enter Free Agency every year and earn themselves big-new contracts rewarding them for last season’s production. Some teams get hit by this theme more than others, but it’s hard to top the Baltimore Ravens when it comes to consistency in that department.
It seems the Ravens can’t go a single off-season without having a star player leave for Free Agency. Sometimes it feels like the front office meant for this to happen, and others it feels like it could’ve been avoided. The team has had both instances of this just this past week, after expectedly losing Za’Darius Smith but then surprisingly failing to bring back Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley.
These losses hurt a lot, but thankfully the Baltimore Ravens always have a plan and have made great additions. The Ravens solidified two important positions on its roster by adding running back Mark Ingram and safety Earl Thomas. Ingram provides Baltimore with a true no.1 running back to pair with Lamar Jackson, while Thomas completes what could be an absolutely terrific secondary.
However, there is still plenty more that can be done. Even with these losses and additions, some holes remain on the roster. Baltimore still needs wide receiver help, as well as veteran leadership in other important positions both offensively and defensively. The 2019 NFL Draft will provide answers, but Free Agency is still open and still has promising players available.
Of what’s left on the market, four players stand out among the rest. These men are proven players who can come to Baltimore and immediately make the team better in more ways than one. Who are these guys? Let’s take a look…
