2. The Ravens could sign Will Fuller

Will Fuller is a player who’s been connected to the Ravens in rumors quite a bit over the last eight months or so. Much like Hilton, Fuller’s best days are probably behind him.

The 21st overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Fuller spent the first five years of his career in Houston where he served a vital role as an explosive downfield playmaker. That is, of course, when he was actually healthy.

Fuller has battled injuries his entire career and it’s what’s derailed his NFL journey to this point. The former Notre Dame star has played in more than 11 games just once in his career, that coming in his rookie season.

Fuller was limited to just two games with the Miami Dolphins last season as a result of a broken thumb that landed him on the injured reserve. There’s been no indication that teams have looked to sign him since.

However, unlike Hilton, Fuller should still have plenty left in the tank. At just 28 years old, Fuller can be a productive player if he actually stays healthy.

The Ravens have been missing a dynamic deep threat in their offense since the departure of Marquise Brown and Fuller would fill that role (along with practice squad member DeSean Jackson).

Relying on him to stay healthy for the remainder of the season might not be wise, but he might be worth the gamble given the receivers the team is currently working with.

Why not take a chance on Fuller’s game-changing talent?
