The Baltimore Ravens have offered wide receiver Willie Snead an interesting contract. Per multiple reports, it’s a 2-year, $10.4 million offer, which the New Orleans Saints will now have five days to match.

Snead had previous interest from the Ravens, but didn’t have any immediate offers. Snead showed up for the team’s offseason workout program just several days ago, but had not signed his tender.

New Orleans added Cameron Meredith through free agency, and recently brought back Brandon Coleman. Once thought of as the team’s No. 2 option, Snead would have likely battled it out with Coleman as the No. 4 option. Now, he looks to have a bigger opportunity in front of him, and it’s hard to see the Saints matching the deal.

The Saints could fill the void through whatever’s left in free agency, via the draft, or ultimately see what they have in players like Josh Huff, Paul Turner, Tommylee Lewis, and Travin Dural, to name a few.

New Orleans would not receive any compensation for Snead’s departure.
