Trade Number 3: The Ravens increase the trade return in a big way

Ideally, the Ravens can include Bateman in a deal. Fans are probably sick of waiting around for him to pan out. They have even seen more consistency this year out of Nelson Agholor than they have in Bateman. Having a foursome of Adams, Zay Flowers, Odell Beckham Jr. and Agholor would be a dream for Lamar Jackson. There would simply be no room for Bateman at that point.

But, if Bateman and a second rounder aren't enough to get it done, then the Ravens could up the ante quite a bit with something along these lines.

Adams trade 3

In this deal, the Ravens are going to give up a first-round pick in 2024 to go along with Bateman and a fourth rounder. This trade would loudly scream "all-in" for the Ravens. But, it could take them from the bottom third of the league in passing to, at the very least, the top half of the league.

Adams is one of the best outside threats there is in the league today, and having him doing what he does best along with someone like Flowers threatening in the quick passing game could transform this offense into quite the beast.
