Ravens target No. 2: Will Fuller

This may be the riskiest addition the Ravens make all offseason.

Baltimore isn’t really in the business of high-risk, high-reward signings, but the team could use extra receiver options in 2022, and on paper, Fuller fits the bill. He’s young, talented, and productive — as long as he’s not injured.

The former Dolphins wideout has struggled to stay healthy throughout his six-year NFL career and is seen as a huge liability to any interested NFL team.

Fuller’s most productive season came in 2020 on the Houston Texans when he caught 53 catches for 879 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games, but he followed that performance with a disastrous stint in Miami where he only played three games.

If the Ravens were to bring him on, Fuller’s injury history waves a giant red flag and there’s no guarantee he can assume the role of a reliable and consistent wideout in 2022.

At his worst, he’d be a less productive Sammy Watkins, but at his best, he could compete with Rashod Bateman for the title of the team’s top receiver.

Fuller arguably carries the most upside of any remaining free agent receiver and, like Houston, could also be signed to a cheap one-year “prove it” deal.
