Baltimore Ravens Lose WR Willie Snead to Las Vegas in Free Agency
The Las Vegas Raiders have signed wide receiver Willie Snead, the team announced Friday.
Snead’s deal is for one year, making the Raiders his fourth NFL home since entering the league in 2014 after the Browns signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State. The 28-year-old receiver spent the last three seasons with the Ravens, recording 33 receptions for 432 yards.

Snead’s best individual seasons came with New Orleans in 2015 and 2016. His production diminished over his time in Baltimore, largely due to injuries and the difference of a system led by mobile quarterback Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens have attempted to, but have largely been unable to, add to their weapons to surround Jackson this offseason, despite having plenty of salary cap space. Miles Boykin, Marquise Brown, Devin Duvernay, James Proche II and former Steelers practice squad player Deon Cain appear to be the most likely to earn playing time for Baltimore this season.
