Ravens Beat: Kamar Aiken is the 'best option' to be the WR2
It’s understandable fans are excited about a healthy Breshad Perriman. And there is a natural curiosity for what Mike Wallace, a proven deep threat, can bring to the Ravens’ offense.
However, the Ravens’ best option to be the No. 2 wide receiver and line up across from Steve Smith Sr., assuming he’s healthy, remains Kamar Aiken.
It won’t be easy, but it will be on quarterback Joe Flacco and offensive coordinator Marc Trestman to get everyone involved. However they do it, Aiken deserves a prominent role.

It's difficult to project the Baltimore receiving corps. Steve L Smith seems to be the WR1 if healthy, but he's 37 years old and coming off of a season-ending injury. Breshad Perriman was a 1st round pick and the team signed Mike Wallace in the offseason. Aiken was the most productive receiver in 2015 and is certainly the best bet to replace Smith if he were to miss any time.
