The Ravens have been relatively quiet in free agency thus far, specifically as it pertains to the wide receiver market. However, after sitting on their hands for a few days, it appears they could be making a ploy for one of the biggest names on the market.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Friday morning that the Ravens had reached out to the agent of Kenny Golladay:
Here’s a twist to the free-agent WRs: the Ravens have reached out to Kenny Golladay’s agent, Todd France, to inquire about the former Lions’ wideout.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 19, 2021
What this means exactly is up for debate, but it’s certainly an interesting development. Golladay has been heavily linked to the Bears and Giants over the past few days and has met in-person with both teams. The Ravens could be looking to jump in the mix at the eleventh hour or could simply be doing their due diligence.
The fact that Schefter is reporting this, though, would suggest they’re making a somewhat serious “inquiry” into Golladay’s availability. Golladay, 27, was one of the top free agent wideouts on the market this offseason — and is certainly the best receiver still unsigned.
In four career seasons, he’s caught 183 passes for 3,068 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns. He struggled with injuries in 2020 and appeared in only five games but previously posted back-to-back campaigns of 1,000+ yards. He caught a career-high 11 touchdowns in 2019.
We’ll be sure to monitor the latest developments in this situation, so stay tuned for updates to come here on Baltimore Beatdown.
My understanding is Ravens spoke to France earlier in week, too. But not sure if those initial talks were of great significance. https://t.co/o6RFhFW6o7— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) March 19, 2021
