Another guy the Ravens could look at, and were looking at early in the 2023 offseason, is wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Baltimore was rumored to be in on him before he ultimately signed with the Titans, but now the Ravens could have a chance at getting him once again.

Hopkins got the type of money he wanted, but he isn't getting the wins. He's also hardly gotten the usage he is used to seeing as an alpha wide receiver.

In six games, Hopkins has caught 27 passes on 47 targets for 376 yards and no touchdowns. In Baltimore, he would be the no. 1 wide receiver without question, with Zay Flowers checking in at two. Giving Jackson a dominant outside presense like Hopkins, who can also line up in the slot at times, will open things up for Flowers and Mark Andrews.

Not to mention, more attention is taken away from Jackson since Hopkins will keep the defense on its toes as well. Having to worry about Hopkins down field, along with the legs of Jackson, is going to be difficult for opposing defenses.

You would have to believe the Ravens could get Hopkins for something along the lines of a fifth-round pick at this point, since he was released from the Cardinals after Arizona was unable to find a trade partner.
