4. Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens have a perpetual need for better talent at wide receiver, which lands them on lists for about any notable one who may be available (DeAndre Hopkins being the latest).
Baltimore’s lack of appeal as a free agent destination for wide receivers lately is a chicken-or-the-egg situation, blamed on Lamar Jackson’s limitations as a passer or offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s lack of imagination. Roman is gone now, which lends to the idea the offense will change some (for the better?) with a new play-caller who may want to throw the ball a little more. But Jackson is a free agent, and that’s a cloud currently hanging over the whole team. The Ravens can use the franchise tag to keep him for 2023, but that may make an already seemingly contentious situation even moreso.
With Rashod Bateman hopefully healthy and able to stay that way next season, the Ravens could trade for Hopkins, then still sign someone like Chark with the cap space they currently have ($26.8 million, according to Over The Cap) and have a pretty good-looking top trio of wide receivers.
Baltimore’s quarterback situation is broadly uncertain, even if they hold the franchise tag in their pocket with Jackson. Without or without their former MVP signal caller, Chark could easily be on their radar in free agency.
