On Thursday night, the New York Jets released wide receiver Brandon Marshall. As the Jets began re-shape their team, Marshall saw that they did not have a good outcome expected during the 2017 season, so he asked to be released.
Several hours later, the Baltimore Ravens are the first team that is reportedly interested in signing the veteran. They are expected to explore the idea.
The Ravens took a gamble on another veteran wide receiver several years ago. The Carolina Panthers thought Steve Smith Sr. had nothing left to offer them, so they moved on.
It was a big mistake because Smith Sr. had a lot left and proved that he was still a good receiver. Following the off-season, he retired.
The Ravens will be in the market for at least one wide receiver. They also have to make a decision on Mike Wallace’s option, who has to be announced by the fifth-day of the new league year.
Wallace led the team in receiving yards last season. Marshall led the Jets in receiving yards the past two seasons.
