Still, if the coaching staff and/or management don’t feel comfortable with this crop of receivers, it could mean someone like Brandon Lloyd get’s a look at some point. Lloyd caught 74 passes for 911 yards and four touchdowns with the New England Patriots last year, but he was released due to a $3 million roster bonus, and he’s also viewed as a “me-first”player that would require a strong locker-room to handle.
The Ravens may not have that anymore after so many veteran players retired or departed via free agency this offseason. Brandon Banks, Sammie Stroughter, Donald Jones and Laurent Robinson are also still on the market.
Oregon State rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton’s speed is opening eyes with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so much so that they may be getting over losing Mike Wallace in free agency sooner rather than later.
