Of all free agents, none makes mores sense for the Baltimore Ravens than Eddie Royal.
Royal would help the Ravens in so many ways. First, he is an excellent punt returner. Last year, the Ravens used Lardarius Webb at punt returner, but they would be unwise to continue to use their best cornerback on returns.
Second, Royal would instantly become the third receiver for the Ravens offense. Royal is a solid slot receiver with good hands, good speed and dynamic after-the-catch ability. He would greatly boost the Ravens' short passing game.
Finally, though he's better in the short game, Royal is a competent deep threat with enough speed to stretch the field. With Royal on the field, opposing safeties could not focus solely on Torrey Smith, opening up the deep passing game.
All in all, Royal would be an affordable option that could provide a big boost to the Ravens both on offense and special teams. He is perhaps the most underrated free agent this year.
