In a surprising turn, JuJu Smith-Schuster has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year deal. What was more surprising, though, was the list of teams that were in on the 24-year-old wideout.

Interestingly, JuJu turned down a bigger offer from the division-rival Baltimore Ravens, who do have a pretty clear need at the position. Assuming Baltimore continues looking for help at the position, here are three WRs the Ravens can target after missing out on JuJu.

Ravens Wide Receiver Rumors

3. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

This one is a bit unrealistic, but the Ravens could benefit from it being a bad time to be a free-agent wide receiver. The 2021 NFL Draft class is absolutely stacked at the position, which has seemingly made teams hesitant to shell out big money to free-agent wideouts. For example, premier deep threat Will Fuller just took a one-year deal to join the Miami Dolphins. If Golladay is forced to do something similar, the Ravens would be a great landing spot. He'd have a real shot at a Super Bowl ring (a nice change of pace after playing with the Lions) and he'd be the alpha of this WR group. If the Ravens can free up a bit more space, landing Golladay on a one-year deal isn't totally out of the question.

2. Adam Humphries, Tennessee Titans

Adam Humphries isn't the big-name WR fans are clamoring for, but he'd be a really nice body to add to this group. He has dealt with injuries in each of the last two seasons, but he shined in his last full 16-game campaign (2018). Humphries racked up 76 receptions for 816 yards and 5 TDs that year. When healthy, he's a reliable, possession receiver who can move the chains consistently. That's an element this Ravens' passing attack could really use. It's not a flashy signing, but he'd be a rock-solid addition for Baltimore.

1. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

At the beginning of the season, it looked like T.Y. Hilton's best days were behind him. He had missed six games in 2019 and failed to reach even 70 receiving yards in any of his first nine games in 2020. But he really turned it on down the stretch. The FIU product averaged 72.5 over his final six regular-season games, which works out to a 16-game pace of 1,160 yards. That's exactly the type of juice this Ravens' passing attack needs. Put Hilton opposite of Marquise Brown with Mark Andrews working over the middle and suddenly this skill-position group looks pretty dangerous. The 31-year-old would be a big get for Baltimore.
