Sarah Ellison from BaltimoreRavens.com speaks with Jerry and Rob about the positional breakdown for the Ravens and who to expect to join the starting eleven on offense.
In addition, she reports on the importance of signing Jeremy Maclin.
Tight end position for the Ravens has thinned out after Dennis Pitta’s season-ending hip injury and Darren Waller’s year-long suspension. Benjamin Watson, Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore are all working their way back from injuries. However, out of the choices, Ellison has her suspicions of who will be the starting tight end in a few months.
Ellison said, “If I had to make a choice, I would say that Ben Watson would be the starting tight end. He seems ready to go. He’ll have had more then a year to get back to it by the time the season starts. If you remember, the Ravens signed in when they weren’t sure if Dennis pitta would play. I would say that he’s the man. Having said that, I do think that Nick Boyle will be on the field a lot. I think Watson would be more of the receiving threat.”
