The Baltimore Ravens have been connected to rumors surrounding free-agent wide receiver Odell Beckham for months now, and with Beckham seemingly close to signing with a team, those rumors haven’t gone away.

Head coach John Harbaugh was asked about the team’s interest in Beckham when speaking to the media on Monday, but rather than give a straight answer, he provided a typical Harbaugh response.

Harbaugh told reporters that he hasn’t “really thought too much about it” when asked if the Ravens could consider signing Beckham. That’s about as noncommittal as it gets.

This comes a couple of weeks after it was reported that the Ravens were still “in conversation” with Beckham, although the team has not reportedly set up an official meeting to this point.

Beckham has already concluded official visits with the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills and is reportedly visiting with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday and Tuesday.

Time is running out for the Ravens to make a last-minute attempt to sign the former Pro Bowl wide receiver.

It seems unlikely that the Ravens will sign Odell Beckham

At this point, it seems rather unlikely that the Ravens do end up signing Beckham, but it’s hard to argue that he wouldn’t provide a major boost to their offense.

The Ravens’ offense has struggled mightily in recent weeks due in large part to their lack of talent at the wide receiver position. Now with Lamar Jackson sidelined, the offense is in full-on panic mode.

While the team trusts Tyler Huntley and they feel comfortable leaning on him until Jackson is healthy, it would make sense to get him some additional wide receiver help if possible.

Demarcus Robinson and Devin Duvernay continue to share the majority of snaps and targets with James Proche and DeSean Jackson sprinkled in, but that room is less than inspiring, to say the least.

If healthy, Beckham would provide the team with their most talented wide receiver and perhaps help spark a struggling offense.

Nonetheless, the fact that the team has yet to set up an official visit doesn’t bode well for their chances. Harbaugh was noncommittal on Monday, but he might as well have said what we’re all thinking.

The Ravens aren’t going to sign Odell Beckham. They’ll have to search for other ways to jumpstart their offense. Here’s looking at you, Greg Roman.
