The Baltimore Ravens labored through a tough 2021 campaign. Injuries derailed them from the get-go, and they were never able to recover, resulting in them missing the playoffs in a lost season. There was a lot of bad luck involved in Baltimore last season, but the front office made sure that they wouldn’t be able to use bad luck as an excuse in 2022.
The Ravens made a lot of solid moves to reinforce the depth on their roster. They have given their star quarterback Lamar Jackson more protection on offense, and their defense looks like it will be one of the best in the league. If the Ravens can stay healthy, they look poised to be one of the best teams in the NFL in 2022.
Despite an offseason full of good moves, the Ravens failed address arguably their biggest position of need at wide receiver. They needed help there heading into the offseason, and that need is even more pressing now as Baltimore gears up for training camp, which isn’t ideal. With that in mind, it isn’t surprising that the Ravens two worst moves of the offseason came at the wide receiver position.

No. 2: Letting Sammy Watkins leave in free agency
The Ravens had a dire need for more playmaking after the 2021 season. Granted, many of their top skill players were forced to miss time, if not the entire season, with injuries, which contributed to that need. They should have their top running back duo of JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards back for the 2022 season, and Mark Andrews is coming off a nice bounce back campaign last season too.
