The Baltimore Ravens are likely going to be forced to make some difficult decisions this offseason. With an abundance of players set to hit free agency and not enough cap space to keep everyone, general manager Eric DeCosta will have his work cut out for him.

But as we’ve seen in the past, DeCosta and the Ravens are never ones to shy away from a potential opportunity.

The Ravens will explore all avenues when it comes to improving their roster this offseason. That includes the obvious free agency and NFL Draft routes, but it also includes the trade market.

Of course, the Ravens are no strangers to the trade market.

Players like Marcus Peters, Calais Campbell, and Yannick Ngakoue have all been acquired via trades in recent years proving that the organization is always open to any and all possibilities.

Even with a limited amount of flexibility this offseason, expect that to be the case once again.

The Ravens will have decisions to make with players like Bradley Bozeman, DeShon Elliott, Patrick Mekari, Anthony Averett, and others this offseason — not to mention the impending Lamar Jackson extension.

But they’ll also have other holes that they will need to fill. The defensive line might be forced to undergo a youth movement. The offensive line could see some changes. And even the secondary might see some turnover.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at four players the Ravens could potentially target in a trade this offseason.
