The Baltimore Ravens addressed significant needs while also netting themselves exceptional prospects in the National Football League draft in 2021 and selected a total of eight players. Rashod Bateman, a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens, was announced to have officially signed his rookie contract with the organization. Bateman was the franchise’s first draft pick.
Bateman’s contract details were revealed by ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, who reported that the four-year, $12.6 million agreement included a $6.5 million signing bonus.
Bateman is now considered an official member of the Ravens’ organization, and it is expected that he will make an immediate and ongoing effort to develop chemistry with quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Assuming that Baltimore is successful in negotiating a long-term contract with Jackson, it is highly likely that the two will continue to play together for an extended period of time.
The team had a good reason for selecting the former Minnesota pass catcher in the first round of the draft, so they should be able to count on him to contribute significantly in 2021.
