With J.J being looked at in FA, and Doss not being tendered, as well as Deonte's current arrest issue, and Stokelys retirement, Looks like the Ravens will have potentially 4 slots available coming FA and the draft, what say you ravens nation? Will there be a whole new young squad of WRs or will there be a mix of vets in there as well. The draft is full of depth and a few start WRs but with the names available in FA, it can go either way.

I wouldn't mind a double WR dip at the draft. Someone like Odell Beckham Jr first and maybe Kevin Norwood later. I'd definitely want a free agent too if Jacoby isn't re-signed.

Yeah I wouldn't mind signing a couple mid tier free agent WR's and still drafting some.

1 FA guy with return potential and 2 guys in the draft are what I like but as long as we get our guy, I am happy

And with the Browns seriously in the Darrelle Revis hunt it puts added pressure on getting talent at WR

If they do get Revis, it would be harder for them to keep Alex Mack if another team made a run at him.

I think it's funny how the worse teams look at a quick fix overpaid single player answer rather than wisely improving all over the roster.

For us to bring him in, Ozzie needs to wait a 2 weeks. If no one bites, we'd be in the bring in a mason/Q kind of guy for a little over a vet min.

Those are the opportunities Ozzie lives for.   :)

Happens every year. Like the Dolphins last year. Some teams can't draft and need to create fan buzz with splash moves. However, that Browns defense was already a top 10 defense. They're reportedly close to signing Whitner already. So if they get Revis too, we may be worried.

I think we make a move for at least one vet receiver, one rookie receiver, and one rookie TE.  You've got a new OC coming in with a new system, and I'm sure his criteria for WRs and TEs is different - plus 2 new position coaches who probably also have different criteria with regard to the types of players they think will succeed in Kubiak's offense.

Would love if we could get Nix but he'll be worth to much probably.  i wouldn't mind if we got Tate or Smith for the right price.  I really hope we dont go for Decker or Edelman though, they'll prove I think to be more product their QBs than true top receivers

I like Steve Smith. He plays with intensity at all times. Plus we also sign Daniels and trade up for Watkins we could have a very good offense. Pick a late round running back with something to prove. Sign Mack from Cleveland and a vet Tackle or move KO and move in Jensen.

Sign Steve and leave it alone.  Hopefully some good receiving talent falls to us at 17.

 

And yes, find a way to keep JJ. please.

I don't think so.  Doss was non-tendered because we could have interest in bringing him back on a cheap deal.  We're still in contact with Jacoby as well.  While we have open spots, I don't think it's because we're set on free agents.  It's very possible both of them are back. even though Doss likely wouldn't make the team in that case.

Hopefully Doss is done as a Raven. He was resigned as a cheap band aid after being cut and sitting at home without a job. Physically talented, but...............

I like what you are saying here. Not sure the Watkins thing works, but OK!
