In somewhat of a shocking move, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that T.J. Houshmandzadeh has inked a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens. Houshmandzadeh has been rumored to join the Redskins, Raiders, Vikings, Bengals and the Rams in the last two days but there hasn’t been any mention of the Ravens being an option.
Houshmandzadeh’s deal will be for the veteran minimum salary of $855,000 which shouldn’t be a problem for anyone other than Seattle. The Seahawks will be on the hook for the remaining $6.15 million dollars of his contract after releasing this weekend.
It seemed like the Redskins were the most likely team to get Houshmandzadeh because of their need for receiver but you can never have enough talent and the Ravens will add to an already potent offense.
The Ravens signed Anquan Boldin in the offseason to be their possession receiver but it appears that the team feels that you cannot have enough of these receivers. Adding a wide-receiver of Houshmandzadeh’s caliber to their already formidable offense makes them an even larger threat in the AFC.
