The best remaining free agents the Ravens could consider

Who else is out there that the Ravens should go after?

The Ravens still have some money to spend and it looks like going after a receiver could be what's in store in the coming days.

Plenty of free agent receivers are out there, with a couple that look to be players that will fit right in with what the Ravens' offense will be under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Without further ado, here are some players the Ravens could go after to fit these needs:

WR Julian Edelman

This one is rather obvious, given the need for a chain-mover over the middle. Edelman had a career season in 2013, with 1,056 yards and six touchdowns. He's not only just a slot receiver as he has lined up wide for the Patriots. Shifty with reliable hands, Edelman makes perfect sense for the Ravens.

WR Steve Smith

OK, so this is a free-agent-in-progress. But still, when Smith hits the market, the Ravens should pounce. With Smith getting $3 million from the Panthers no matter what in 2014, the Ravens could likely negotiate an ideal salary for a tough, veteran presence on and off the field. Yes, he's had his distracting moments, but this guy is someone that still has a couple of productive years left in the tank.

WR Emmanuel Sanders

Sanders is a quick-footed slot receiver that can make some tough catches. He was productive at times in Pittsburgh but was overshadowed by Antonio Brown and Heath Miller. Jerricho Cotchery also became a go-to guy in the red zone this past season. Sanders should definitely be someone on the radar, but more of a backup plan if some of the other options don't pan out. Reportedly, there is interest.

TE Owen Daniels

Daniels' career went the way it has with Gary Kubiak coaching him in Houston. It would be a great fit for Daniels if Baltimore brought him on board. Of course, he could be pricier than the Ravens would value him for, considering their top tight end will be Dennis Pitta. But Kubiak does like to run two-tight end sets frequently, so this could be something for the organization to think about.

C Alex Mack

Mack is signed to the transition tag with Cleveland, meaning the Browns will have the opportunity to match an offer sheet from another team. If the Ravens are interested, as the NFL Network has indicated, then Mack would be the kind of major splash that would excite Ravens fans that want the team to concentrate on the offensive line.
