The wide receiver position is unquestionably the Baltimore Ravens largest question mark heading into the offseason. Role player Chris Moore is the only wideout guaranteed a roster spot in 2018. The front office could add as many as five new receivers through free agency and the draft.

The Ravens currently possess he sixth least salary cap space in the NFL, but could create approximately $15 million in additional room by releasing a handful of underperforming players. This would give Baltimore the flexibility to sign any receiver who becomes available. Spotrac has estimated the market value for the top five impending free agent wideouts:

A premier slot man in the league, Landry has averaged 100 catches and over 1,000 receiving yards per season over his four year career. Jarvis has excellent hands, yards after the catch ability and displays toughness going across the middle. Only 25 years old, he should have staying power.

Robinson is a jump ball specialist who tore his ACL in Week 1 last season. At just 24 years old, he is still improving at his craft. A vertical and red zone threat, Allen posted 14 touchdowns in 2015 and has a career average of 14.1 yards per reception.

Another capable slot man in the prime of his career. Lee is a complementary receiver with 171 receptions, 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns on his resume. Marquise runs crisp routes and is a chain mover with a career average of 12.7 yards per reception.

Richardson broke out in 2017 with 44 catches for 703 yards and six touchdowns. He is especially adept at making contested catches downfield and proved to be a reliable red zone target. At 25 years old, Paul boasts untapped potential.

The Bills traded Watkins to the Rams last offseason. His yardage totals dipped in Sean McVay’s offense, but he posted eight scores for the Rams. With strong hands, deep speed and elusiveness after the catch, Sammy displays all the tools of a true #1 wideout. Still just 24 years old, he could be a long term solution if he is past a previous foot injury.
