Ravens Officially Sign WR Washington

By Ben Butanis

It will be interesting to see how the signing of WR Kelley Washington and the “retirement” of OT Willie Anderson affect the Ravens this season.

By “retiring” Anderson, the Ravens free up almost three million dollars in cap space. The move makes sense because Anderson reported to minicamp overweight and is still dealing with knee issues. But the team still owns the rights to Anderson, meaning if there are more injuries on the offensive line this year, we could see him return.

Hopefully Michael Oher can hold down the right side this season, freeing up Todd Heap and L.J. Smith to give Joe Flacco some offensive help.

The only thing I like about the Kelley Washington signing is that it’s a one-year contract. He isn’t the answer Ravens fans – and probably the front office – are looking for at wide receiver.

I get it. The guy is 6-foot-3. He gives Flacco a big target in the red zone. But Washington has 73 catches over six years in the NFL, including a whopping one reception in pass-happy New England last season. Not exactly the deep threat the team needs.
