The Baltimore Ravens needed to address the wide receiver position heading into NFL free agency, but they've failed to do so thus far. They made aggressive offers to JuJu Smith-Schuster and T.Y. Hilton, yet those players re-signed with their teams for less money, and lost WR/kick returner Chris Moore to the Houston Texans.

Now, Baltimore is in danger of losing another wideout.

Free agent Willie Snead IV is set to visit with the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday. Visits don't always equal deals, but they can set the stage for an eventual signing, which would cut into the Ravens' WR depth even more.

Snead was one of Baltimore's top receiving options last season, registering 33 catches for 432 yards (both third highest on the team) and 3 TDs. He's nowhere near a star, and the Ravens' run-heavy offense doesn't rely on top receiving talent, but it'd still hurt to lose the key veteran wideout.

Marquise Brown (23) and Miles Boykin (24) are currently the two top receivers, and this core could get younger if Baltimore pursues a receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft.

In what could've been an offseason to upgrade at the position, the Ravens will likely depend on their young contributors to rise to the challenge.
