View Full Version : Drew Bennett Signed
1 year, veteran contract... I thought he was good when he was on the titans.. but after that he kinda fell off..

If they're looking for a number two receiver, Bennett could be a decent signing here, but not really much more than a complimentary piece at this point in his career.
Problem I'm seeing with this offense right now is there's no true reliable go to guy who can make a big play when needed, at least not an obvious one at the moment.
I still think Todd Heap is an amazing TE... but other than that they dont have much

He's got a lot to prove now, last season, full 16 games, about 400ish yards. Not great, even with a rookie quarterback (granted, one who played very well), that's not enough production out of an upper tier tight end who was one of the best in the game a few years back.

I wouldn't be surprised if a RB leads the team for receptions.

I'd put money on Mark Clayton being their leading receiver this season, but not with much more than maaaaybe 55-60 catches. They'll do a good job of distributing the ball this year, but more or less out of necessity I think.

I think Mark Clayton at #1, Bennett at #2, and Heap at TE is still a decent amount of weapons for Flacco to throw to. At least, it's enough for the Ravens. It's not like their offense is the one winning games for them.
Interesting that they sign another former Titan receiver to replace one though.

I expect Mason will be back anyways.

Bennett just retired. :wow:

Adam Schefter's Twitter account confirms just as much, what the heck happened in two days to make him go from all in to moving on to his next career option?
I mean, I don't blame the guy, he's had a fairly long career, but still, this is intriguing to say the least.

Old knee injury. Ravens would be better off just trading for a WR.

I hear Brandon Marshall might be available for the right price.
Granted, no one's been able to tell me what that right price is yet, but he might be out there for the taking. Marvin Harrison's also a free agent, as is Reggie Williams.
But then again, those two might not be huge upgrades at this point.
I think Drew Bennet did this just to ruin my first news topic :(
