1. Benjamin Watson
The 6-foot-3 tight end and new Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson took steps last week to secure his a roster spot on the Baltimore Ravens by restructuring his contract and taking a $1.25 million pay cut, per ProFootballTalk.com
Benjamin Watson has what all Ravens tight ends lack. Experience. Watson who is entering his 13th season was a rookie when Maxx Williams was only ten. This makes him a team leader and a great player to have around for emerging prospects.
Watson was signed by the Ravens in 2016. But unfortunately, missed the entire season after he tore his Achilles. The year before Watson signed with the Ravens he had his best season yet. So that goes to show that there is still gas left in the tank.
At, every fault of the others on the list Watson succeeds in. Darren Waller lacks experience. Watson has the most on the team. Williams and Gillmore can’t seem to stay healthy. Beside the Achilles injury last year Watson only missed one game in the previous four seasons. Barnidge isn’t on the team as simple as it sounds so Watson beats him there.
That is why Benjamin Watson seems the most likely and best replacement for Dennis Pitta.
