The wide receiver market has been somewhat slow in the early going of free agency. But now a team that could use a big-time receiving threat has entered the proverbial chat.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Ravens have inquired about Kenny Golladay through his agent, Todd France.

Golladay has reportedly visited with the Bears and Giants, and has an offer on the table from the Bengals. But it remains to be seen what kind of interest he would have to go to the Baltimore.

The Ravens have an explosive offense, but that’s because of their running game. Baltimore easily led the league in rushing yards and attempts. But the club ranked last in passing yards and attempts.

Earlier this month, General Manager Eric DeCosta said he doesn’t think too much about how the team will or won’t be able to attract free-agent receivers. But if Golladay is concerned about numbers, then there may be better options for him on the open market.

  1. I suppose if the money was right, he could accept not being targeted much. It would have to be a lot of money though.

  2. Even if they pay him a bit more than others are offering, it would cost him in the long run to take the likely hit on stats and performance from the lack of opportunities. He’d be far better off in the long term to take a bit less and go somewhere that will utilize his obvious talents. Then next year when there’s more money available perhaps he can strike a larger deal.

  3. Potentially Coming from a perennial losing team, the hapless lions, to a perennial winning organization. What’s not to be excited about? He will be a great addition to the Ravens. to all the haters, the Ravens are not done building their offense. They tailored it to Lamar’s strengths. Now, they can expand on that development and focus on the passing game to complement their overwhelming running game and making the offense more balanced and unpredictable. If I were Golladay, I would be pumped. Not only blocking on running plays will be asked of Kenny Golladay, but winning one-on-ones outside the numbers and coming down with the jump balls. He will fit in nicely in Baltimore. I am rooting for this signing. Although it will cost the Ravens a highly prized comp pick, it will be worth it.

  4. I think juju is the perfect fit in bmore… he tough and physical plus I believe the locker room culture there would be able to handle his immaturity

    So paying Lamar Jackson and then overpaying this guy? Yes and yes!

    If New England had anything resembling a franchise QB on its roster you would understand these tradeoffs a little better. But keep overpaying Ravens castaways to cover for Belichick’s inability to draft. Remind me again what he’s won without Tom Brady?

    Juju is a much better fit for the Ravens than Golladay. I know fans that don’t appreciate his antics might not agree.

  7. When teams devote so many people to stop the run Golladay, Brown, and Andrews would have more room to get open for Lamar. It balances out the offense. Come on Kenny!

  8. He wants $18.5M a year, I seriously doubt he will get it, but it won’t be from
    the Ravens. They need to pay Lamar and it’s gonna be too dollar money.

  9. To have contact with several teams and to be allowed to leave town means he is looking for top dollar.
