Last offseason, Baltimore Ravens GM Eric DeCosta signed key players such as Geno Stone, Jadeveon Clowney, Arthur Maulet, and Ronald Darby to very team-friendly contracts. All of these players played well above their contract value, resulting in some major steals for DeCosta.

DeCosta will most likely abide by a similar strategy this offseason, thanks to limited cap space and several key free agents. The Ravens need to bank on multiple bounce-back young players and underrated veterans making an impact.

With impact players like Patrick Queen, Kevin Zeitler, and Stone just a few of the veterans set to hit free agency, DeCosta will have to work his magic. Here are 3 free agents that could be low-cost, high-impact signings for the Ravens this offseason.

3. RB Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts

Running back is a glaring need for the Ravens this offseason. The current room hosts Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell (who is in the midst of recovering from a torn ACL), and that's it. Although those two players are undoubtedly solid, additions are sure to come this offseason.

Since this year's draft class is weak at running back, these additions might come in free agency. There are plenty of great running backs slated to hit the market this offseason, as Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, and Saquon Barkley. Any of those players would be fantastic additions, but Zack Moss could be an underrated addition at a much lower cost.

Moss was very productive for the Colts last season, rushing for just under 800 yards in 14 games. He showed good efficiency as well, averaging 4.3 yards per carry and a 49.2% success rate (ranking him 21st among all ball carriers). It was a career year for Moss, who's just 26 years old.

Moss profiles very similarly to Gus Edwards, but he may have better big-play ability and top-end speed. He's also two years younger than Edwards, which could be a factor for the Ravens. If they decide to move on from Edwards, Moss could be a solid and cheap replacement. Spotrac estimates Moss's next contract to be a 2-year deal with an average salary of $4.6 million per year.
