It wasn’t due to a lack of trying as the team reportedly eyed a number of wide receiver prospects in the draft, but for one reason or another, it never came to be.
Sensing an obvious hole at the position, the Ravens have remained active in the wide receiver market post-draft. Most recently, they were connected to five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry. That was before he signed with the New Orleans Saints this past week.
The Ravens are still exploring the possibility of adding a wide receiver in free agency. These nine players make sense as potential targets.
9. The Ravens could sign Chester Rogers
The options have certainly dwindled on the free-agent market as we approach mid-May. The Ravens likely aren’t going to be able to land any true difference-makers at this stage, at least not those without a litany of red flags.
But if they’re looking for a well-traveled, experienced veteran who doubles as a reliable special-teamer, they could do a lot worse than Chester Rogers.
Rogers spent last season with the Tennessee Titans where he finished with 30 catches for 301 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. He was primarily a depth player who also served as the team’s primary punt returner.
The Ravens don’t need a new punt returner per se, but they could always use the extra depth. Rogers is an unexciting but reliable depth option.
