Ravens admit to looking for young WR to "grow" with Flacco

The Baltimore Ravens have freely admitted that they would love to find and develop a young wide receiver to grow with QB Joe Flacco and develop that chemistry that most great passing-receiving combinations seem to have. Ravens Director of Player Personnel Eric DeCosta seems to think that this would be a better way of finding success in the passing game than signing free gent WR's such as Donte Stallworth and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

DeCosta was quoted on as saying,

"I think it’s important to get a bunch of guys here that are going to be here for a while that can work with Joe and develop a great relationship with Joe long-term," DeCosta said.

"If you bring in a younger player, he comes in here from Day 1 and hits the ground running and is all the time working, I think that’s really good long-term moving forward for our team."

Whether or not this means bringing in a young, proven veteran through free agency or more likely drafting a to talent in April's NFL Draft remains to be seen, but this is certainly another step in the right direction for the Baltimore Ravens passing offense.
