4. Ravens target: Jayron Kearse, S

The Ravens are very likely to sign a safety in free agency. There’s still a chance they bring DeShon Elliott back, but he’s little more than a fallback option at this point.

One somewhat unheralded player who could be a target is veteran Jayron Kearse. Kearse is in the second-tier of free-agent safeties and a player who could be had at a much more reasonable price than someone like Marcus Williams.

The six-year veteran put together the best year of his career in 2021 finishing as PFF’s 13th-highest-graded safety in his first season as a full-time starter.

Kearse could replace Elliott in the Ravens’ secondary while providing the team with a legitimate upgrade at the position.

3. Ravens target: Riley Reiff, OT

The Ravens need to address their offensive tackle depth this offseason, and that could very well happen in free agency. Not only does the team need some help at right tackle, but they also need security behind Ronnie Stanley at left tackle.

Riley Reiff would accomplish both of those things.

The 10-year NFL veteran has nearly 140 career starts under his belt with experience playing both left and right tackle. He’d likely want to come in and compete for a starting job, but that should be no problem.

Reiff is probably my favorite swing tackle option for the Ravens, and someone they should be able to afford.
