The Baltimore Ravens are short a veteran presence outside the numbers, but their second-leading receiver from 2016 knows who can fill his shoes.

Retired receiver Steve Smith, now spending his days dropping glorious one-liners during NFL Network’s combine coverage, mused Friday on Baltimore’s shoddy receiver depth, suggesting that impending free agent Brandon Marshall jersey should be a target for the team.
“I think (Marshall) would be a good fit,” Smith told the Ravens’ website. “Actually, me and B. Marshall talked last week and he kind of gave me a heads up on some things.
“I think he would be a great fit because he’s a playmaker. At the end of the day, you need playmakers. You need a lot of horses in the stable and you can never have too many playmakers on cheap nfl jerseys one team or one side of the ball.”
Set to be released by Jets this week, Marshall has made it clear that his next destination will have to be in contention for a Super Bowl. Baltimore was one Antonio Brown touchdown away from winning the AFC North last season and should be more than competitive in the division again.
Marshall might also be intrigued by the leadership of John Harbaugh jersey and the veteran presence of Joe Flacco, a consistent, if not elite quarterback.
Baltimore made a splash by luring former Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson away from two suitors — the Jets and Browns — who offered significantly more cash.
The Ravens then added versatile running back Danny Woodhead before re-signing their own big piece of the puzzle, mammoth nose tackle Brandon Williams, to a five-year, $54 million contract. When that deal went down, the defensive lineman loomed as the top free-agent prize remaining on the open market.
Jefferson’s story says plenty about the Ravens. Instead of cashing in with a rebuilding club, he took less coin to play for an ultra-consistent organization run by Newsome and coach John Harbaugh and stocked with accomplished veterans like fellow safety Eric Weddle jersey, who called up Jefferson and lobbied him to sign with the Ravens jersey.
Baltimore could use more help at cornerback and linebacker and Newsome noted the front office is “still looking to do some other things at receiver and maybe offensive line.”
Amid whispers the team is eyeing former Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne, Newsome said: “We still have the opportunity in free agency to address (the secondary), and then we’ll be looking forward to the draft.”
NFL Network’s Steve Smith first reported the development.

“Elvis Dumervil has been a leader for us on and off the field,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. “He has made a positive impression on our franchise and authentic jerseys wholesale, and we have been fortunate to have him as a Raven. We respect his professionalism and the way he plays the game, in addition to his extensive charitable efforts that have greatly impacted our Baltimore community and his parents’ native country of Haiti.
“We have not closed the door on the possibility of him returning NFL jerseys for sale in the future.”
Battling a foot injury for the first two months of the season, Dumervil recorded just three sacks in eight games last year. After racking up an impressive 26.5 QB takedowns in his first two years with the Ravens, he managed just nine in 24 games over the past two.
A five-time Pro Bowler averaging nearly 12 sacks per year from 2007 through 2014, Dumervil’s days as a starter are likely over at age 33. If he stays healthy, though, perhaps he can carve out a valuable role as a situational pass rusher along the lines of DeMarcus Ware or Dwight Freeney.
With bookend outside linebacker Terrell Suggs entering his age-35 season, the Ravens will have to address the position in free agency or early in the draft.
