Ravens to bring in four wide receivers

Four veteran wide receivers -- Jerry Porter, Kelley Washington, D.J. Hackett and Tab Perry -- will try out for the Ravens at this weekend's full-team minicamp, a team official told The Baltimore Sun on Wednesday.

Depending on the workouts, the Ravens could sign all or none of the receivers, the official said. The Ravens are looking for size, bringing in four receivers who are at least 6 feet 2 and over 200 pounds.

Porter, 30, had 11 catches for 181 yards and one touchdown last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. His best season recently came in 2007 with the Oakland Raiders where he had 44 receptions for 705 yards and six touchdowns.

Washington, 29, had only one catch for three yards last season for the New England Patriots. In his first two seasons in the NFL (2003-04), he totaled 53 catches and seven touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hackett, 27, caught 13 passes for 181 yards and no touchdowns last season in his only year with the Carolina Panthers. He averaged 35 catches in three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

Perry, 27, didn't play last season for the Miami Dolphins after an Achilles' tendon tear last May sidelined him for the entire season. Known more for his special teams play, Perry had 10 catches in three seasons with the Bengals.

Just so show how truly sad this is....if you were to combine the total stats from those 4 WR's last year, they would equal 25 catches...365 yards..and 1 TD.

COMBINED they would be the equivelant of the the 148th Reciever last year in stats...between Brandon Lloyd of Chicago and Arnaz Battle of the 49rs.

Individually Porter had the best stats and ranked as the 243rd best reciever in the league!!!:doh:

Just like the ratbirds, bringing in the leftover trash hoping to find someone else's diamond in the rough.

Another worthless addition to the RATbirds attempt at building a good WR core.
