Not going to lie, Boldin was about the best they ever had, they just didnít use him enough. Dude was an absolute animal on the super bowl run, so if Beckham can give them that style of play and production Iíd be happy with it. I did like Mason as well. Sucks Baltimore seems to get them on the back nine, although Boldin continued to produce in San Fran.

The best receiver in Ravens history was probably Michael Jackson back in the Vinnie Testaverde days. 76 catches 1200 yards and 14 receiving TD's back in 1996. How he wasn't selected for the pro bowl that season is beyond me. Next up would likely be Aquan Boldin, then Derrick Mason.

I don't trust Beckham to play more than 5 or 6 games in 2023.

Still remember Chris Bergman yelling Michael Ē hee hee Ē Jackson 😊

Thats why OBJ is there. To keep Lamar company at the trainers table.

Guess not, he signed a deal.

Not saying itís right or wrong, I just donít see him finishing that contract as the starter.

Woogs, what say you?

He got $185M in guaranteed money without an agent.  Impressive.

They offered more than that before was the word in the news. $175 million fully guaranteed and $200 million if he was with the team in year five. But yeah, he got paid for sure.

They should have drafted Levis and let Lamar go.

Replace an All Pro with a crap shoot?  I wouldn't do that.  They already have the most dangerous QB in the NFL when healthy.  They just need to protect him and give him the skill position players to succeed.  Adding OBJ and that WR they just drafted is a good start.

Lamar was a flash in the pan. He no longer plays at an all pro level when he plays at all.

Check out his passing and rushing stats.  Pretty consistent.

As are his playoff performances and regular injuries.

He does get hurt a lot, but he has started 7, 15, 15, 12, and 12 games in the regular season.

He's had 7 comebacks and 10 game winning drives.

I agree his 4 playoff game numbers do not look good.

Lamar can thank Jalen Hurts' agent for getting the deal done. If not for that, I believe they would still be negotiating now. Here in Baltimore the local fan base is ecstatic. From my standpoint I find it odd that no one is acknowledging the fact that NO OTHER TEAM in the NFL made Lamar an offer. That to me, holds a lot of weight. I'm not a big Lamar guy and he has a lot to prove this upcoming season. The Ravens are stepping it up by adding more weapons for him. Last season was the worst supporting cast for Lamar that I've ever seen.

Yes, the WR core was atrocious.
