TE Josh Oliver - Minnesota Vikings

The Ravens have one of the most crowded tight end rooms this season featuring superstar Mark Andrews and capable backups Isaiah Likely and Charlie Kolar, so Baltimore knew someone had to go and the chosen one was middle-of-the-ground Oliver.

Oliver reached an overpaid-agreement with the Vikings (three-years, $21 million deal, $10.75 million guaranteed) in what was then seen as a ridiculously huge amount of money for a career-long backup player at his position. Oliver was a third-round pick in 2019 and is primarily a blocking tight end. He contributed 14 receptions, 146 yards, and two touchdowns during his time with the Baltimore Ravens last season.

Although the Ravens would have never paid Oliver as much dough as the Vikings gave him, the truth is that judging by his Week 1 cameo they might be a little bit frustrating with letting him go.

Oliver put up the second-best PFF receiving grade among players at the position in Week 1 going 3-for-3 on catches and racking up 32 yards while at it. He grabbed a toss for one yard, but the other two went for gains of 18 and 13 yards and earned first downs for the Vikings each time.
