Dadraftnick Posted May 6, 2009 Report Share Posted May 6, 2009 When the Ravens grow up they want to be us.They have Willie Anderson and our Best WR coach ever now it seems they are trying to get more more ex-Bengals.If the Bengals suck so much, as we are told by the press daily, then why is the Ravens "genius " scouting department going after our former coaches and players?PFTAccording to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are working out D.J. Hackett, Jerry Porter, Kelley Washington and Tab Perry.We’ve separately confirmed that the Ravens are trying out those four receivers, and a decision on whether to sign any of the players is likely to be made by Monday.The Ravens have two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Derrick Mason under contract as well as Mark Clayton, Demetrius Williams and Mark Clayton, but have been looking to bolster the position and add more size.Of those four candidates, Porter and Hackett have been the most productive as receivers while Washington and Perry have done well on special teams.Hackett caught 13 passes for 181 yards for the Carolina Panthers last season, and has registered 118 career receptions in five seasons for 1,575 yards and nine touchdowns.Porter was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars after catching 11 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown last season.The 6′2,” 220-pound former West Virginia standout’s best season over the past three years was a 44-catch, 705-yard, six-touchdown season with the Oakland Raiders in 2007. Entering his 10th NFL season, Porter has caught 295 career passes for 4,120 yards and 31 touchdowns.A former Cincinnati Bengals third-round draft pick, Washington caught one pass for three yards last season for the New England Patriots and blocked a punt.Perry was out for the entire season last year with the Miami Dolphins due to a torn Achilles’ tendon. With the Bengals for the previous three seasons, he caught 10 passes for 109 yards and one touchdown.Following the draft, the Ravens agreed to a free agent deal with undrafted Duke wide receiver Eron Riley, a second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection.
