The Raven is one of the best fit for this freelance star’s WR.

A vast receiver is evidently missing from the Baltimore Ravens’ passing game. Lamar Jackson is a quarterback for the franchise, even if his long-term future remains undecided, while Mark Andrews is a sure-fire, tight-knit for All-Pro.

What Jackson and Andrews need is the spaciousness that other teams will fear. An outside threat would take Andrews’ coverage from the inside and make even Jackson’s errant throws look good.

Fortunately, the freelance market still has a perfect receiver for the job. A crunchy yet brilliant veteran who shed his reputation as a diva to finally win the Super Bowl his talent was demanded of last season.

The injured champion is worth the wait for the Crow

Odell Beckham Jr. released Bleacher Report’s “ranked 10 best unsigned players under the age of 30” list. Wharton named the Crows in a group of four teams, including the Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Rams, as the teams that best suited Beckham.

The Rams stand out because they were the ones who helped Beckham win the Super Bowl last season. He moved to LA after being dropped by the Cleveland Browns during the 2021 season.

Beckham only appeared in eight regular season games for the Rams and his numbers are modest. They included five catches in 39 yards and an encounter with a Raven secondary team ravaged by injury in Week 17.

However, Beckham came to life after the season, scored against the Arizona Cardinals in the Wildcard Round:

Beckham added six catches in 69 yards ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Division Round. He then netted the San Francisco 49ers with nine catches and 113 meters in the NFC Championship Game.

Those performances catapulted the Rams to a spot in Super Bowl LVI to take on the Cincinnati Bengals. Beckham only made two catches, but once started the game open touchdown:

Joy turned to sorrow as Beckham succumbed to the pain of an ACL tear He suffered the same injury as a member of the Browns in 2020.

This timeline means Beckham looks set for another mid-season transition for the teams by the time he’s 30. The Ravens shouldn’t wait until then because of Beckham’s signing and Putting him in IR for a while is worth it, considering the effect the 29-year-old transition will have on this passing game.


Beckham will transform the Raven’s passing game

The two touches that Beckham caught after last season showed his flexible scheme. To counter the Cardinals, he was split as the sole receiver on one side of a 3×1 set. When he scored against the Bengals, OBJ lined up across.

These are just two of the options for a creative offensive dispatcher that utilizes Beckham’s impressive movement, route and catch radius. Raven needs this level of creativity in a passing game that has been criticized in recent years.

Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown is transaction to the Cardinals during the draft, and he was criticize Greg Roman’s plan as the phone caller “It’s just a system not for me personally.”

Brown has had a career year in 2021, making 91 contacts for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns, but he’s no Beckham. The latter will expand on how Roman and Jackson attack air defenses.

Beckham will also be a reliable pair of hands on the outside. Noted for his incredible catches, the veteran proved last season he can still shoot from difficult angles, like against catch this against the Bucs:

Raven lacks the versatility and flair of this play in a wide receiver position. Second-year man Rashod Bateman is expected to lead an unproven group that also features Devin Duvernay, James Proche and Tylan Wallace, who combined for 51 captures a year ago.

Whether they wait until November or move out now, Raven won’t find a better proven expansion than Beckham still available. He’ll probably jump at the chance to join another team that’s likely to fight for the title right away.

Adding Beckham to a strong and deep attack in every other position could be the catalyst Raven needs to spark a post-season run.
