Baltimore Ravens after Patriots wide receiver in free agency

The Baltimore Ravens missed the playoffs this past season but only by a whisker or two.

One area that needs improvement is at wide receiver, and general manager Ozzie Newsome plans on making the receiving corp a priority.

“I think we’ve identified the type of player that we’re looking for,” Newsome said at a news conference. “That player will be available ... whether it’s in free agency, whether he’s a cap casualty, whether it’s in the draft or whether it’s through trade.

No, there is no reason that he might not be here at the beginning of the season, but I always try to leave myself a little leeway to give us a chance to get it right.”

According to Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Zrebiec, New England Patriots man Julius Edelman could be exactly the type of guy he expects the Ravens to make a run for.

"The Ravens could use a physical and explosive receiver to work underneath, a player capable of making tough catches and breaking tackles en route to big plays.

In a perfect world, think Boldin with a little more speed."

Edelman has many of those characteristics. Mike Evans and Marqise Lee are noted as certain possibilities as well if they drop to the Ravens pick at number 18.

Zrebiec makes a point of noting that the list of potentially available receivers is a long one, so the Ravens will have multiple targets on their board but after Edelman's break out season at the Pats with Tom Brady, there seems to be no reason he could hit the thousand yard mark again with Joe Flacco's superior arm.
