With spotlight on his position, D. Williams looks bulked up

Ravens receiver Demetrius Williams looks like he has added about 5 to 10 pounds of solid muscle, especially in his upper body. His arms are thick, and the Ravens need Williams to have a good season, and finally become the deep threat this team desperately needs.

Williams has shown flashes of greatness, especially at practice, but he hasn't done it consistently on the field. With Derrick Mason still deciding if he wants to play this season, this is a great time for Williams to develop some chemistry with second year quarterback Joe Flacco.

The Ravens placed running back Willis McGahee on the physically-unable-to-perform list. It might just be a precautionary move, but it would be nice if McGahee just came to training camp and practiced without any drama.

Another player who has bulked up is second year offensive tackle Joe Reitz, out of Western Michigan. The Ravens have always like Reitz's athleticism, especially since he is a former basketball player. Last year he looked more like a power forward in pads. This year, he looks like a legitimate offensive tackle.
