There may not be Baltimore Ravens football this week, but there IS NFL football! We’re almost there, Ravens Flock!

In the meantime, training camp is in full effect, and we are all thoroughly enjoying all the clips, highlights, and tweets coming out about our beloved Ravens. While it would be foolish to believe that everything is all sunshine and rainbows, we have certainly seen more positive reports than negative so far for the Baltimore Ravens (knocks on wood aggressively).

But in case you’re living under a rock, let me fill you in on the latest from Ravens Twitter and see what the Flock is tweeting about in this edition of Out to Lunch!

Good news, everyone! The Baltimore Ravens have officially signed all of their 2022 NFL Draft picks to their rookie deals, with second round pick David Ojabo signing his deal August 2nd.

Ojabo will be recovering from an Achilles tear he suffered back in March, which may have contributed to the hold up in contract negotiations. Regardless, Ojabo’s contract is officially official and the Ravens 2022 class is signed.

It’s no secret that the Ravens’ wide receiver room is lacking in proven talent. We are all aware of how talented Rashod Bateman is and the perceived impact he will have in his second season, but beyond him are more questions than there are answers. Could Baltimore bring in a former Pro Bowler to its roster?

Somehow, someway, three-time Pro Bowler Odell Beckham Jr. remains a free agent as training camp is rolling out. While it may not be a surprise to some considering the 29-year-old is rehabbing from his second torn ACL in less than two years, OBJ was instrumental in the Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl run this last postseason and clearly has plenty to offer his new team, whomever that may be. Would the Ravens be the team to bring him in?

From a certain perspective, it makes almost too much sense. Beckham is lightyears ahead of where any current Ravens receiver is at this point in their respective careers. Beckham is also a massive upgrade to the offense entirely and is the kind of game-changer Baltimore has been trying to find at wide receiver for the longest time.

It would certainly be a gamble to bring in Beckham considering his recent injury history, but the roll of the dice on him for the later part in the season, perhaps for a playoff push, is as enticing a thought as it gets.

If the Ravens did opt to add some wide receiver help, could the team take a chance on a former first-round pick?

To say Jalen Reagor hasn’t adjusted to the NFL would be putting it as gently as possible. In two seasons, Reagor has accumulated just 695 receiving yards and three total touchdowns. While Reagor wasn’t perceived as a slam-dunk pick at the time he was drafted, the pick has certainly aged like milk.

But sometimes a change of scenery is all a guy needs to get his career back on track. If the Ravens decided to move a late and/or conditional draft pick to acquire Reagor it certainly wouldn’t be the worst move in the world. There’s nothing wrong with kicking the tires on a once highly-touted player, after all. That being said, it is difficult to envision EDC & Co. making this move.

The consensus feeling about the current state of the wide receiver corps feels summed up in this tweet:

I love a good ole Happy Gilmore reference as much as the next guy, but this clip hurt a little bit with this context.

That’s all I have for you on this Wednesday edition of Out to Lunch! Make sure you are following Russell St. Report’s coverage of the Baltimore Ravens training camp, so you don’t miss any updates about our beloved NFL team. See you next week, Ravens Flock!
