The Baltimore Ravens had an eerily quiet first day of free agency on Monday. The Ravens didn’t make a single addition, release, or re-signing of one of their players.

It was like they weren’t even there. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, are the Ravens still an active NFL franchise? That was the question many fans were asking themselves after a dull first day of free agency.

That said, things promise to pick up in the coming hours. The Ravens still have plenty of needs to address and, fortunately for them, there are plenty of appealing free agents still available after Day 1.

Let’s take a look at nine potential Ravens targets who remain free agents going into Tuesday.

9. Ravens target: Hayden Hurst, TE

Could a reunion be in order between the Ravens and their former first-round pick? If pre-free-agency rumors are to be believed, it’s certainly possible.

Hayden Hurst dropped a few hints in the weeks leading up to free agency that he could be interested in returning to Baltimore. Given the Ravens’ need at tight end, it makes plenty of sense.

Hurst spent just one year as a starter in Atlanta before the addition of Kyle Pitts overshadowed him. Still, it would be nice to see him reunite with Mark Andrews and provide the Ravens with much-needed tight end depth.

If the Ravens target a low-cost tight end in free agency, Hayden Hurst would be an intriguing addition.
