Early line on Ravens wide receiver tryouts

In the spirit of the upcoming Preakness, here are the odds on the Ravens signing the veteran wide receivers:

Jerry Porter (4-to-1): It was only last offseason when the Jacksonville Jaguars gave him $10 million guaranteed, so Porter has intriguing talent. If he's motivated and healthy (he had a hamstring surgery in July 2008 and was placed on injured reserve in December with a groin injury), he should look the best of all the receivers in the tryout.

Kelley Washington (7-to-1): He might not make as much of an impact at receiver as D.J. Hackett, but he is favored over him because of his special teams ability. The Ravens could use a tall backup receiver who can contribute on the coverage and return teams.

D.J. Hackett (8-to-1): He's the dark horse to have the best tryout. Hackett has great hands, good size and above-average speed. The knock on him is he's an injury risk.

Tab Perry (15-to-1): The Ravens actually talked to him last year during free agency before he signed with the Miami Dolphins. He's a quality special teams performer but he really wouldn't add much to the Ravens' group of receivers.
