Steelers target from Ravens: WR James Proche

The Ravens roster doesn’t really match up with what the Steelers have a need for. A name that is quickly mentioned is Patrick Queen, but he has been a hot and cold linebacker and I doubt the Ravens want to trade him to a divisional rival. Instead, I opted for a receiver that can add another body to the slot and potentially work as a return man.

James Proche has benefited from a lacking Ravens receiving room for quite some time. He has been a fixture on the roster and has, at times, even been a viable receiving threat. On top of this, he can work in the return game, further adding to his value.

His time on the roster is likely coming to an end, as Baltimore has aggressively added to their receiver room in the offseason. If the Steelers still need a return man and another potential slot receiver, Proche would make a lot of sense and will likely be available on waivers.

Others considered: FB Ben Mason

While I am confident that Connor Heyward will serve as the defacto fullback for this offense, the team may opt to keep a more traditional body there. Ben Mason fits that mold as both a physical blocker, a capable runner, and a sneaky receiving threat. He doesn’t appear like a lock for their roster, so he could be of interest for the Steelers.
