Ravens offer WR Snead a two-year contract
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the Baltimore Ravens have offered New Orleans Saints restricted free agent receiver Willie Snead a two-year, $10.4 million contract.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the Saints nor Ravens have announced the move.
The Saints have five days to match the offer.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has attempted to upgrade a passing game that ranked 29th in the NFL last season. Newsome previously signed free agent receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown.
Hampered by a three-game suspension and a hamstring injury, Snead was limited to eight catches for 92 yards last year.
In 2015, the former Ball State star had 69 receptions for 984 yards, and he caught 72 passes for 895 yards in 2016.
Baltimore’s offer to Snead was first reported by ESPN.
