Free agency won’t even open for another 19 hours, but somebody needs to cut off the wide receiver market and call it a cab.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Ravens have agreed to a four-year, $29 million deal with Washington free agent Ryan Grant, which includes $14.5 million guaranteed.

Grant has 84 career receptions for 985 yards and six touchdowns in four seasons.

If the total value of the deal is accurate, that’s $345,238 and change per career reception.

That’s not to say the Ravens can’t use Grant, as their options were limited. But the market for pass-catchers has gone bananas today, with players coming off injury or with middling statistics getting lucrative deals.

From Sammy Watkins (never caught more than 65 passes in a season) getting $16 million a year to Allen Robinson (coming off a torn ACL) getting $14 million per year, the market has skyrocketed for players who are not necessarily stars.

Even players in the 40-catch range are getting $8 million a year (Albert Wilson, Paul Richardson), which means the few remaining options could still do well for themselves.
