WR Rashod Bateman signed his four-year, $12.6 million rookie contract with the Ravens on Wednesday.
Bateman’s rookie deal includes a $6.5 million signing bonus. The Ravens selected Bateman with the No.27 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. He's expected to start alongside Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins. The Minnesota product can create separation and play all over the field. Bateman gives QB Lamar Jackson a new weapon that could flourish in the Ravens' passing game. Bateman is currently 68th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
The Baltimore Ravens have selected wide receiver Rashod Bateman with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Ravens have had a glaring weakness at wide receiver for the last few seasons. Although they went out and signed Sammy Watkins this offseason, that came after striking out on Kenny Golladay and JuJu Smith-Schuster in free agency. Bateman can play all over the field and will look to become the team's top wide receiver this year. Marquise Brown paced the team in targets in 2020 but Lamar Jackson should look Bateman's way plenty as a rookie in 2021.
Minnesota Golden Gophers WR Rashod Bateman, the No. 19 overall prospect for the 2021 NFL Draft according to Todd McShay, has opted out of the 2020 college football season.
Arguably one of the best receivers in the B1G opts out after a breakout season in 2019. Instead of working around the stringent protocols that are sure to be in place for the 2020 college football season, Bateman has instead decided to prepare for the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. We could see other players follow suit, but he becomes one of the biggest names to make the decision to opt out thus far.
