2. Should the Baltimore Ravens add a wide receiver?

This one may be tougher to see because the team did so much at wide receiver this offseason. Still, it is easy to look at the roster and think that they need to be getting more out of their wide receivers. The two issues are Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman. On one side, the duo has been banged up. They just got back into the lineup, and Beckham is still new. It will take some time, and the Ravens just need to stick with it.

On the other hand, the duo has serious injury questions around them, so it is not a shock that the injuries are creeping up. Why would they not creep up again? Beckham is at an age where he may not get back to his old ways, and Bateman has never shown that he can consistently put things together.

When you think of it like that, there is a reason to look into this market. The Ravens thought about adding DeAndre Hopkins to this room in the summer; why not try again? They also could get Hollywood Brown back on the cheap because he is a rental. They could ride out his rookie deal and let him walk. Either way, they have options to add a receiver. The question is, do they trust Becham or Bateman enough to avoid making a move?
