Calling All Receivers for Friday’s Mini-Camp

Baltimore is attempting to leave no stone unturned in trying to find some more offensive production from the wide outs.

Four veteran wide receivers — Jerry Porter, Kelley Washington, D.J. Hackett and Tab Perry — will try out for the Ravens at this weekend’s minicamp, a team official told The Baltimore Sun Wednesday.

Depending on the workouts, the Ravens could sign all or none of the receivers, an official said. The team is expected to make a decision Monday.

The Ravens are looking for size, bringing in four receivers who are at least 6 feet 2 and over 200 pounds.

Porter, 30, had 11 catches for 181 yards and one touchdown last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. His best season recently came in 2007 with the Oakland Raiders in which he had 44 receptions for 705 yards and six touchdowns.

Out of the group only Porter has had any real success. So I’m honestly not holding my breath that any of these potential players will be the answer that the team is looking for.

The good buzz seems to be on undrafted signee Duke grad, Eron Riley who ran the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day in 4.36 seconds, which would have ranked fourth at the NFL combine. He might seem to have the mix that they are looking for but as we all know rookies need to adjust to pro game.
