After coming so close to the sport's biggest stage, Super Bowl LVIII, the Baltimore Ravens now enter into an offseason where they have some tough decisions to make.
At the moment, cap space is limited as the Ravens are operating with roughly $7 million. There are moves to be made in order to increase that number, but what would the Ravens do with the extra space?
Looking ahead, there are some key guys I think the Ravens re-sign and, if we may, let's get a little bold in predicting who comes back and who joins this roster in the near future.
1. Odell Beckham Jr. re-signs on team-friendly deal
Last year, Odell Beckham Jr. signed with the Ravens on a 1-year, $15 million deal. For that type of contract, Beckham didn't exactly live up to it in terms of his production. He ended with 35 receptions for 565 yards and three scores, and while those numbers don't look too hot on the surface, there was one number that meant a lot to this offense.
Beckham's 16.1 yards per catch were good for a career-high. We saw shades of the old OBJ on occasion, with big plays happening every so often. This year, Beckham has an opportunity to keep a good thing going in Baltimore and with a quarterback he's had a great relationship with for a while.
He's not worth $15 million annually, and I think he probably knows that. But, he seemed to enjoy himself in Baltimore and loved the run that team went on. I think he comes back to the Ravens on a deal closer to the $6-$8 million annual average in value.
