For many NFL players it would be a slap in the face to be overlooked after having the season Kamar Aiken did last year, putting up nearly 1,000 receiving yards and 75 catches.
“I’m not working hard enough,” Aiken said. “I probably have to do a little more.”
Much of the buzz surrounding Ravens training camp has centered on when Steve Smith Sr.and Breshad Perriman are going to come back – and with good reason. They’re two key players.
Meanwhile, just as he did last year when Smith and Perriman were injured, Aiken has gone about his business of being the Ravens’ most impressive wide receiver on the field.
Aiken became a starter, and the team’s top target, last season. Now he’s looking to keep a stranglehold on it when everyone’s healthy. Fortunately for Aiken, it's a position that's had its share of setbacks. Back in June those who follow the team felt Aiken was the best WR2 option but that remains to be seen with Smith, Perriman and now Wallace all in the fold.
