The Baltimore Ravens have plenty of talent at the wide receiver position. They brought in Sammy Watkins in free agency while also selecting both Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace in the 2021 NFL draft. What was once a need now is one of the deepest positions on the roster, so the team might have to make some tough decisions in the future.

A move that Baltimore made a few months ago was deciding not to bring back Antoine Wesley, a third-year receiver out of Texas Tech. Wesley was looked as a player with promise, as he stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 206 pounds. He put up 98 receptions for 1,547 yards and nine touchdowns during his three years in college. After not having much production over his first two years with the Red Raiders, he caught 88 passes for 1,410 yards and all nine of his scores during his final year with the program.

On Friday, the Arizona Cardinals announced that they signed Wesley to a one-year deal. The former Raven will reunite with his college head coach in Kliff Kingsbury while entering a crowded wide receiver room in Arizona that’s headlined by DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, and new addition A.J. Green.

Wesley could never fully put it together in Baltimore. After signing as an undrafted free agent in 2019, he spent the season on the practice squad, and in 2020 he was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He impressed in training camp on multiple occasions, but ultimately ended up not being a part of Baltimore’s long-term plans.
