Per Josina Anderson, the Ravens are looking to add another tight end, a veteran specifically, to the offense.

This may not come as a surprise since a talented undrafted free agent tight end in Jacob Breeland is not expected to play in 2020.

Adding an established veteran like Jordan Reed or Delanie Walker will allow for more flexibility in the pass game. They would also take the pressure off of starter Mark Andrews as both Reed and Walker excel in catching passes.

Walker has only played eight games in the past two seasons and will likely need to put together a strong training camp while maintaining his health if he wants a chance at a roster spot.

Reed played 13 games last season and contributed 54 catches for 558 yards and 2 touchdowns. When healthy, Reed is a very productive pass-catcher. That being said, Reed has had issues with concussions in the past, which the Ravens may be wary of.

Although both tight ends are in the latter years of their career, they still have the ability to produce.

If either player is signed, be sure to observe their training camp play as that will indicate whether they are worthy of a roster spot.
