The Baltimore Ravens have a plethora of free agents to resign, but who are some free agents from other teams that Baltimore should be interested in?
The last thing the Baltimore Ravens should be thinking about is who they will sign in Free Agency this offseason. Baltimore has some big-name guys to bring back before they can think about bringing new guys in. Matt Judon, Jimmy Smith, Patrick Onwuasor, and Michael Pierce are only the start of the team’s free agents who they’d like to return.
Sadly, the NFL is a business and it’s unlikely they’ll all stay. Heck, all four of them could depart for new teams. The Ravens have a modest amount of cap space to work with, sitting with around ~$30 million (per spotrac.com) to retain their guys and maybe sign some others.
Baltimore has become a bit of a hot spot in recent years for free agents, with Earl Thomas and Mark Ingram being the most recent examples. With what the team is building right now, guys are buying in and want to come to play for the Ravens. This is a title-contending team.
So while Baltimore would like to bring back their guys before they bring in others, it’s just not that realistic. What does make sense is to let a majority of those guys walk and then make a splash in Free Agency. In fact, that sounds like a very ideal scenario.
There’s plenty of names to consider, but there’s five who standout as homerun options for the Baltimore Ravens to bring in. Let’s start off with some honorable mentions…
