With free agency set to begin next Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens could try to shed salary in the form of a trade this offseason.

According to CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora, the Ravens are trying to deal wide receiver Miles Boykin.

"Execs from multiple teams tell me Ravens seeking to deal WR Miles Boykin, a 3rd rnd pick in '19. Need cap space and have drafted slew of WR in recent years," La Canfora wrote. "Boykin fully healed from freak weight room finger injury from 2021. Had excellent combine and strong metrics. Deal likely."

Boykin, a third-round pick out of Notre Dame, has 33 career receptions for 470 yards and seven touchdowns.

Unfortunately, Boykin didn't make much of an impact for the Ravens this past fall. It's tough to see a team giving up an appealing draft pick for him because of his drop-off in production.

The Ravens have a plethora of options at wide receiver, such as Marquise Brown, Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, James Proche II and Tylan Wallace.

If the Ravens find a trade partner for Boykin, that'd give the Notre Dame product a much-needed fresh start.
