However, Snead said he was ready to get to work and was looking forward to facing the Saints in Week 7.

The Saints did not place a tender on restricted free agent Brandon Coleman.

Eager to add a target for quarterback Joe Flacco, the Ravens on Friday offered Snead a two-year, $10.4 million contract. He played just 11 games after being suspended three games after violating the league's personal conduct policy. Though he only caught eight passes for 92 yards last season, the potential is there. His track record from the slot makes him a nice fit in Baltimore, where the other offseason WR additions - Michael Crabtree and John Brown - profile as perimeter threats. Snead will compete for the third wide receiver spot behind those two with Chris Moore and former first-round pick Breshad Perriman.
