Ravens A Potential Landing Spot For WR Hakeem Nicks?

Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, answering questions in his Twitter mailbag, mentioned that the Baltimore Ravens could be a potential landing spot for free agent WR Hakeem Nicks.

Hensley adds that if the Ravens wanted to make a “big” free agent signing, they could target Browns C Alex Mack.

Of course, both of these ideas are purely speculative options. The Ravens could use some help at receiver, and there is no guarantee that Nicks is going to secure a huge contract on the open market, especially with this year’s draft class loaded at the position.

Baltimore still needs to address some offseason priorities like LT Eugene Monroe and ILB Daryl Smith, in the coming weeks before they can consider free agent acquisitions like Nicks.

Last year, Baltimore wound up signing DE Elvis Dumervil away from the Broncos, so I’m sure they’ll monitor the market for upgrades at positions like receiver.

The Ravens should have close to $28 million in cap space to spend on free agents as of now, but locking up Monroe and Smith would obviously cut into that figure considerably. 

Nicks, 25, is all but certain to be playing elsewhere next season as the Giants have yet to give any inclination that they are interested in making him an offer.

Last year, he totaled 56 receptions for 896 yards receiving and no touchdowns. We have him listed as the No. 27 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
