Which wide receiver(s) will earn their roster spot?

Perhaps the most intriguing battle all offseason has been at the wide receiver position.  The Ravens have a lot of great young talent competing for a limited number of spots.

No matter what, the team is going to be forced to cut somebody that has played well.  Even though the team might have a good idea of who is it going to keep, this game could be the last chance to make an impression.

Since none of the starters are playing, they will all get a shot.  Kamar Aiken appears to have an upper hand, and Michael Campanaro has come on strong lately.  But what of Jeremy Butler and Deonte Thompson?

Thompson is a strong special teamer, and Butler has a strong pair of hands.  For right now, it appears that both are on the outside looking in, but things could change by Thursday night.
