The Vikings released Wallace earlier this week after one season with the team because the price wasn’t right. He was due to make more than $11 million in 2016.
Wallace averaged 12.1 yards per reception last season, a career low. If Wallace, 29, can still stretch a defense, then he and the Ravens could make a good fit. The Ravens know Wallace well from his time with the Steelers, and in a thinning wide receiver market he’ll almost certainly get a look from multiple teams.
Last year’s Ravens’ first-round pick, Breshad Perriman, got hurt in training camp and missed the entire season, and Steve Smith will be 37 in May and is coming off a torn Achilles. Wallace would add speed and a veteran presence to a wide receiver depth chart that’s very much unsettled at this point.
