All 3 can also take the next step up in their development and flourish.

Yea...Lisfranc....15 month recover time.

Wheels are everything when it comes to speed.

 

 

"I'm super excited to be a part of this organization," Ray said. "It's a first-class organization known for having amazing defenses. Just to be out here and to be a part of this team, it means a lot to me. I'm excited to get to work and ready to try to bring a Super Bowl here."..............http://www.espn.com/...help-fill-voids

Not much talent left in free agency so I guess they are trying to "get what they can get" to make the overall roster better. I think they have 13 receivers on the roster at the moment so Competition should be fierce.

 

A little more on Floyd......


 

Where does Floyd fit in?

Even with all the Ravens' additions at wide receiver, they didn't really have a strong-handed possession receiver. There could be a case made Snead was the closest thing but he had a number of big drops last season and has had his production suddenly slip while with the New Orleans Saints. Snead also primarily plays from the slot and with the release of Michael Crabtree, Baltimore didn't have anyone capable of doing that outside the numbers.

While Floyd has been a disappointment as a former first-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, he fits that possession receiver role well. In seven years and 497 targets, Floyd has just 28 drops - never surpassing five in a season. At 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, Floyd has the frame to handle taking hits in order to move the chains as well.

This is actually a move I had expected from Baltimore. An outside possession receiver had been on my list of the Ravens' biggest needs following the 2019 draft. While Floyd has no guarantee of making the final 53-man roster, he gives Baltimore something they lacked and a much more fierce competition in training camp......https://www.msn.com/...Bv?ocid=U508DHP

 

So basically he doesn't drop the ball.

Between Lamar and others droping and turning over the ball this will kill this offense. Every pair of sure hands makes the Ravens success odds better.

Let's hope he can block well. He's got the size.

This disaster was not brought on by global warming but it gives a good picture of the future in many countries if we go past the tipping point....

 


 

MARACAIBO, Venezuela — Zimbabwe’s collapse under Robert Mugabe. The fall of the Soviet Union. Cuba’s disastrous unraveling in the 1990s.

The crumbling of Venezuela’s economy has now outpaced them all.

Venezuela’s fall is the single largest economic collapse outside of war in at least 45 years, economists say.............As the country’s economy plummeted, armed gangs took control of entire towns, public services collapsed and the purchasing power of most Venezuelans has been reduced to a couple of kilograms of flour a month.

In markets, butchers hit by regular blackouts jostle to sell decomposing stock by sunset. Former laborers scavenge through garbage piles for leftovers and recyclable plastic. Dejected retailers make dozens of trips to the bank in hopes of depositing several pounds’ worth of bills made worthless by hyperinflation.....https://www.msn.com/...Kz&ocid=U508DHP

And vice versa Max. I can see a dogfight in practically every game. No gimmies or blowouts.

 

And that makes great football to watch.

Whoever comes out on top and makes the playoffs will be ready.
