Willie Snead was arguably the best long-ball threat on the Saints team in 2015. He was just 16 yards of his first 1,000-yard season. Still without one, Snead has been in Baltimore ever since his three years in New Orleans.
While in the Big Easy, Snead shared the spotlight with Brandin Cooks. Snead stayed until after Michael Thomas’ rookie season. He then left to join the Ravens, a team that’s almost instantly become the AFC’s best.
With Lamar Jackson captaining their ship, the Ravens will have multiple threat in Miles Boykin and Marquise Brown. With Mark Ingram, JR Dobbins, Nick Boyle and Mark Andrews, Snead may see little action as Jackson already isn’t a big-time arm.
More a versatile threat then a pocket passer, Snead could be on his way out, and a return to the Big Easy is something that could easily happen especially if Jackson somehow finds a way to convince the Ravens’ management to bring in Antonio Brown.
Snead had two great seasons in New Orleans, both under the leadership of Drew Brees. Why couldn’t he come in, already knowing the system, and be the third-string receiver the team is craving?
