Baltimore is slightly thin at the position after trading away TE Hayden Hurst this offseason. One of the Ravens’ undrafted free agents at tight end, Jacob Breeland, was also placed on the non-football injury list and isn’t expected to be available in 2020.
As for Walker, a number of teams have also expressed interest in him recently, including the 49ers and the Patriots. He would be familiar with Ravens OC Greg Roman from their time together in San Francisco.
Walker, 35, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2006. He spent seven years in San Francisco before signing on with the Titans for the 2013 season.
Walker was entering the final year of his three-year, $19.075 million contract when he agreed to a two-year, $17 million extension that includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12.76 million guaranteed last year. He was set to make a base salary of $5.4 million in 2020, but the Titans released him last week.
In 2019, Walker appeared in seven games for the Titans and caught 21 passes for 215 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Reed, 30, was taken in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Redskins. He was in the final year of his rookie contract when he signed a six-year, $48 million deal that included $22 million guaranteed with Washington.
Reed was set to make base salaries of $8.25 million and $8.75 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Redskins released him earlier this offseason.
In 2018, Reed appeared in 13 games and caught 54 passes for 558 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
