Ravens reach agreement with TE Ben Watson-- Tue Mar 8 3:25 pm --
Deal can't be finalized until Wednesday afternoon
With Crockett Gillmore having both shoulders operated on this offseason and Nick Boyle suspended for the first 10 games of 2016, Ravens coach John Harbaugh has talked about the importance of adding another tight end.
It appears that the Ravens have done just that.
According to an industry source, the Ravens have an agreement in principle with veteran tight end Ben Watson, a 12-year veteran who is coming off the best season of his career. Watson caught 74 passes for 825 yards and six touchdowns while starting 16 games for the New Orleans Saints last year.
FF Today's Take:This two-day window of "legal tampering" doesn't allow for agreements to be reached "in principle" but it appears Watson is leaving New Orleans for Baltimore. Watson had career resurgence with Drew Brees last season, finishing as fantasy's 7th-best tight end. It's hard to imagine Watson duplicating those efforts in Baltimore. He'll be a on the TE2 radar in redraft leagues.
