Summary

Baltimore signed Watson despite bringing back 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams and last season's starter Crockett Gillmore. It was one of the more surprising free agent signings across the league, but it shows that Baltimore is committed to having weapons at Joe Flacco's disposal. And it provides the team with a viable target should receivers like Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman fall short in their recoveries from injury. With only a block-first player like Gillmore and a rookie in Williams in 2015, Baltimore lacked playmakers, especially once Smith was lost for the season. Watson is coming off career highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. While he's not likely to see those totals of 74, 825, and six repeat without Drew Brees as his quarterback and a pass-friendly offense in New Orleans, Watson showed that he's more than just a blocker at tight end.

Ravens | Maxx Williams tries to stay relevant (Wed Jun 15, 12:56 AM) - Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams had a promising finish to his rookie season, but he faces plenty of competition for targets with WR Dennis Pitta back from injury and veteran WR Benjamin Watson joining the fray. He cannot afford to fade into the background with all of the competition.

Our View: We aren't feeling great about it, and see Williams as no more than a TE3.
