Jeremy Butler, Wide Receiver

Astute Ravens fans are very familiar with Jeremy Butler, who signed with the team last offseason as an undrafted free agent.  Butler put on a show early on in Ravens’ practices, but landed on injured reserve prior to the start of the regular season.

Butler is back, healthy, and has simply dominated offseason activities.  He has benefited greatly from the absence of injured first round draft pick Breshad Perriman and another former UDFA signing, Marlon Brown.

Butler still faces long odds in a stacked wide receiver group.  The Ravens have Steve Smith, Perriman, and Kamar Aiken as roster locks.  They will also likely keep Michael Campanaro, Darren Waller, and Marlon Brown on the roster.

The Ravens also have DeAndre Carter competing for the returner job and looking impressive as a wide receiver as well.  Butler will have to keep impressing through the preseason if he has a shot at landing on the final roster, or wait for an injury to strike.  But I like his odds.
