Ravens attempting to get Lamar Jackson help by going after Kenny Golladay
One of the biggest available names in free agency this offseason is still combing through his options, and now the Baltimore Ravens might be in the mix. Kenny Golladay, the former Detroit Lions wide receiver has already been courted by teams like the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants and now Baltimore has sent out a feeler for the dynamic wide receiver, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Here’s a twist to the free-agent WRs: the Ravens have reached out to Kenny Golladay’s agent, Todd France, to inquire about the former Lions’ wideout.

While Baltimore’s offense is heavily predicated on the run, at least a part of that might be because they haven’t had a true number one wide receiver for Lamar Jackson. Marquise “Hollywood” Brown has been really good, but 58 catches for 769 yards in 16 games played as he had in 2020 doesn’t exactly scream number one wideout production. He could get there, but a chance to add someone like Golladay would immediately give Jackson a top target to rely on.
The Ravens are poised to be a contender in the AFC for years to come. After a deflating loss in Buffalo to the Bills ended their season last year, a move to bring in the likes of Kenny Golladay would show the aggression from the front office that Ravens fans are hoping for. They might not quite be good enough to win a Super Bowl as things currently sit with the roster, but if they can keep adding pieces they will fall right into the mix.
Golladay only suited up in five games last year. In his last full season, in 2019, he hauled in 65 catches for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns. Whoever gets Golladay is getting a legitimate number one wide receiver.
