Wide receiver contract choice made by the Baltimore Ravens while Odell Beckham Jr.’s future is unclear

The decision to retain another wide receiver by the Baltimore Ravens has left Odell Beckham Jr.’s future with the organisation uncertain. Nelson Aghalor, one of Lamar Jackson’s top targets, recently inked a contract extension with the Ravens, but they haven’t made a decision with Beckham yet.

Nine-year NFL veteran Aghalor was a vital member of the Ravens’ locker room as they earned the top seed and advanced to the AFC Championship game, where they were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs, who went on to win the Super Bowl.

Aghalor was the third wide receiver for the Ravens and got along well with Beckham and Zay Flowers. He was a 2017 Super Bowl winner with the Philadelphia Eagles. He hauled in 381 yards and a touchdown after catching 35 of his 45 targets. Additionally, he had a touchdown in the Ravens’ playoff divisional round victory over the Houston Texans.

With star player Flowers starting the second season of his rookie deal and star tight ends Mark Andrews and Isaiah Likely under contract until 2025, Aghalor’s commitment to the Ravens has given their receiving corps a boost.

However, Beckham’s future is still uncertain. The 31-year-old is about to become a free agent after signing a one-year, $15 million contract with the team last year. Despite missing two games due to injury, Beckham ended the regular season with a respectable 565 yards and three touchdowns.

The former superstar of the Los Angeles Rams, Cleveland Browns and New York Giants showed glimpses of his amazing skills that made him one of the best receivers in the NFL before he suffered a serious knee injury in Super Bowl LVI. But now, the Ravens have a big decision to make about Beckham, who comes with a hefty price tag.

The Ravens are tight on money as they head into the 2024 season and will need to make some tough choices. Head coach John Harbaugh is trying to build a strong team that came very close to reaching the Super Bowl. And with Beckham likely to attract interest from teams all over the league, a new contract for the three-time Pro Bowler won’t be cheap
