3. Michael Campanaro will be the starting returner
When Jacoby Jones signed with the San Diego Chargers in February, the returner job was immediately up in the air and there were quite a few candidates for the job with Michael Campanaro as one of them. Well, it wasn’t clear as to who was going to get that job until the depth chart came out and while Campanaro was at the top of the competition along with Asa Jackson who was released this weekend, the Ravens still waited until the preseason was over before announcing who would fill the void left by Jacoby.
Campanaro was the only returner listed on the depth chart and his role as a wide receiver will be limited this season, so it only makes sense to have him take reps at returner given his speed and the reps he took in the preseason. Steve Smith Sr. and Webb could see some returns this season as well, but neither of them are listed as returners on the depth chart and they’re both very valuable in their primary positions.
