The Baltimore Sun

Wide receiver Damien Linson finished his career at Central Michigan with the third-most receiving yards and touchdowns caught in school history before the Ravens signed him as an undrafted free agent in May.

How would you assess your progression in training camp?

I'm not coming along as fast as I thought I would. I couldn't even give you a good reason why, but I'm coming along OK.

With the number of players at your position, does it feel like the odds are stacked against you?

It's a competitive environment. Everybody wants to get paid. It is what it is. You've got to look at the reality of the situation, but I think I've got a great chance. I can make plays just as well as the rest of these guys. We'll just see how it pans out.

Do you feel comfortable with your role?

Oh yeah, I feel comfortable with what they're asking me to do. Every guy wants to be that guy, but you've got to play your position and know your role.

You were the Player of the Year in basketball in North Carolina in 2003. Why did you make the switch to football?

Growing up, I always played both sports. I just decided to stick with football. I love both sports, but I started playing football first.
