Pushing for more competition at receiver

The landscape of the wide receiver position has changed dramatically for the Ravens already in the offseason. The additions of Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth give the team the ability to go over the middle and to get deep. The return of Derrick Mason gives them a known and proven commodity.

That leaves the rest of the cast -- returning and incoming -- to forge a spot on the roster for themselves. That includes players like former first-round pick Mark Clayton and one-time hopeful Demetrius Williams. But it also includes holdovers like Justin Harper, Eron Riley and Marcus Smith, along with draft pick David Reed and free agents Chris Hannon, Maurice Price and Rodelin Anthony.

Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron indicated he will significantly expand the passing game packages the Ravens use.

"The best guys are going to play," Cameron said. "The good news is we've got a good group of guys that are going to push each other, make each other better. You know, if we have four or five [wide receivers on the roster], that gives us four-wides, that may give us five-wides packages [on the field]. So our packages can expand, which we need to do, and this is the year to do it. So my guess is, we're going to need them all."
