“The team earned a good return for Marquis Brown by picking center Tyler Linderbaum with the additional first coach, but the Ravens’ current broad reception pool – led by Rashod Bateman, Devin DuVernay, Tylan Wallace and James Brush – leaves much to be desired,” Lynsey wrote. Baltimore added two receiving threats at a third-day court end in Charlie Collar, Iowa and Isiah of Coastal Carolina, but it still looks like the Ravens will have to rely heavily on Mark Andrews in 2022 unless they plan to sign more help at free agency.
Who to replace Brown, who had 91 catches for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns last season, is now the biggest off-season question for the Ravens, ESPN’s Jamison Hensley said:.
“With Brown’s departure, none of the six wide receivers on the list had more than 53 job finds,” Hensley wrote. “The Ravens can sign a free agent, like Will Fuller V, who can extend the field like Brown, or trade in one. Even if Rashod Bateman fills the first role as expected, Baltimore needs a second, more consistent option for Lamar Jackson offshore.” .
Fuller is an intriguing potential option. The 27-year-old has undeniable talent, but he has struggled to stay on the field. After signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Miami Dolphins last season, Fuller missed 15 games due to a PED suspension, a broken finger and a personal issue. He’s played over 11 games only once in his six-year career, and that was in the junior season.
Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel brought up the possibility of the Ravens being interested in Jarvis Landry, a former Cleveland Browns wide receiver.
However, Landry is turning 30 this season and coming off his worst season statistically (52 catches, 570 yards, two touchdowns). Furthermore, Landry is not the type of receiver that extends the field.
