Flacco: Ravens WR Jeremy Butler was 'incredible' in minicamp

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Butler worked the sidelines and the middle of the field for leverage. He created separation from defensive backs and showed sound hands.

It was an impressive performance Thursday from the former undrafted free agent from Tennessee-Martin, who spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury last year.

"Jeremy Butler, he might have had 1,500 yards in a three-day minicamp," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "He was incredible. He caught the ball extremely well. Little things here and there to work on, but the biggest thing is catching the ball.

"He's just a big, strong body and catches the ball really well. It's exactly what he showed last year in training camp, I thought, and he's just coming out here and doing more of that."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Ravens need playmakers to step up at the receiver position. The 6'2" Butler could quickly work his way into playing time if he continues to have a good offseason.
