At one time, wide receiver Demetrius Williams was a young speedster who many thought could inject a big play element into the Ravens offense. Now, with the additions of Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth, the receiver position in Baltimore has gotten crowded.
By his own admission, Williams will be simply trying to make the team. By now, though, he has grown accustomed to the idea.
"At the end of the season, I always feel like I don't have a job," Williams said. "That's the nature of the game. This year more so. I'm not afraid of it; it's something I can deal with. I'd just like to be told straight up that I am or am not good enough to play here."
When the team's final passing camp of the offseason closed down 10 days ago, Williams was nowhere to be found. He left the four-day camp two days early, allegedly in frustration over not getting more plays in practice.
"I wouldn't say I was frustrated," he said. "I did my work [in camp]. I had things I had to take care of."
Was he upset over the lack of practice plays?
"I would've loved to get more reps," he said. "That's just the way it was."
The Baltimore passing game could be the best it's been in a long time, but don't expect Williams to be a major part of it. He might have been a draftable sleeper in the past, but he's not in the present.
