The Ravens should make one final run at signing Odell Beckham Jr.

The Baltimore Ravens are one of a handful of teams that remain engaged in conversations with free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham as we approach the end of November, per CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson.

While the Ravens aren’t one of the three teams that have set up an official visit with Beckham, it’s clear that the team is monitoring the situation and is still interested in signing the former Pro Bowler.

Beckham is set to take his official visits at the beginning of next month and appears close to returning to the gridiron. If healthy, Beckham would provide a major boost to any NFL offense, but the Ravens especially.

This is a Ravens team that will be without Rashod Bateman for the rest of the season. Their remaining wide receivers — Devin Duvernay, Demarcus Robinson, James Proche, etc. — leave a lot to be desired.

The Ravens would be doing themselves an injustice if they didn’t make one final attempt to sign Beckham in the coming weeks.

Odell Beckham is exactly what the Ravens’ offense needs

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Ravens could really use another wide receiver. Duvernay has exceeded expectations this season but slowed down in recent weeks with Bateman out of the lineup.

Robinson has had his moments too and is coming off a breakout game against the Carolina Panthers. Still, the Ravens’ offense just doesn’t scare opponents at the moment.

They put up just 13 points against the lowly Panthers and only won that game because of an outstanding defensive performance. Beckham wouldn’t fix everything, but he sure would help.

The three-time Pro Bowler proved he still has plenty left in the tank with the Los Angeles Rams last season. Beckham was integral in the Rams’ postseason run and even caught a touchdown in the Super Bowl before his injury.

Of course, the Ravens need Beckham to be healthy and fully recovered from his torn ACL. If he is, however, the Ravens must do their due diligence and attempt to sign him.

Make him an offer. Make your pitch. It’s far from a guarantee that Beckham would choose Baltimore over the likes of Dallas and Buffalo, but it’s worth a shot.

If the Ravens are serious about making a Super Bowl run this season, it’s hard to imagine they get there with a healthy wide receiver corps of Duvernay, Robinson, and Proche.

dark. Next. Ravens still ‘in conversation’ with Odell Beckham, per report

The Ravens need Odell Beckham, more than many would probably care to admit.
