Who will solidify their roster spot at the wide receiver position?

With Breshad Perriman still sitting on the sidelines and Michael Campanaro once again fighting an injury, there is a ton of opportunity for the group of Ravens receivers fighting for a roster spot.

Among them, Jeremy Butler, DeAndre Carter, Daniel Brown, Marlon Brown, Darren Waller, Tom Nelson, and Trent Steelman, and Aldrick Robinson all caught balls last week in Philly.

Behind starters Steve Smith Sr. and Kamar Aiken and Perriman, nothing is guaranteed.  Campanaro appeared to be on the rise once again before his injury, but you can’t blame the Ravens if they are tiring of his inability to stay healthy.  They desperately need guys that can get out of the tub and onto the field right now.

Right now, the smart money is on Butler, Brown, Carter, and Waller having a leg up on everybody else. But as we’ve seen before, the Ravens are going to keep the guys that perform the best.  There’s plenty of time left for any one of them to make an impression.

We’ll get a better idea of how the Ravens value these guys this week, when the order in which they hit the field will indicate their current spot in the race for the final roster.  Each should get an opportunity to make a case for a spot.
