The Baltimore Ravens' offensive struggles have been on full display as of late. Baltimore's failed to score more than 20 points in each of its last three contests as the backfield and wide receiving corps deal with injury troubles.

Following their disappointing Week 6 loss to the New York Giants, the Ravens are signing a former Pro Bowl wide receiver to give this offense a boost.

DeSean Jackson is joining Baltimore after a successful workout, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. The veteran recently spoke about his desire to play in 2022, and with several teams down WRs due to injuries, the Ravens moved quickly to scoop him up.

Jackson is an accomplished wideout who's made a living off of burning opposing defenses as a deep threat. The speedy pass-catcher remained productive in his age-34 season last year, racking up 454 yards and 2 TDs on just 20 receptions.

Though his last 1,000-yard campaign was in 2016, it's clear Jackson can still contribute. His fit with the Ravens makes perfect sense, given how this offense is lacking a field-stretcher with fellow deep threat Rahod Bateman currently nursing a sprained foot. Due to the tricky nature of that injury, it's unclear when Bateman will return, so Jackson offers some insurance in the meantime.

It remains to be seen if Jackson is able to make his team debut in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. Baltimore enters that matchup as a 6.5-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
