Demetrius Williams knows time could be running out

The Brian Billick-led Ravens burned through wide receivers like they did quarterbacks.  Each season brought new hope for the explosive “wide receiver of the future.”

Demetrius Williams looked like a big-play option back in 2006, but injuries and inconsistent hands stalled his career.  After Baltimore added two receivers this offseason, he’s fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot.  He can barely get practice snaps.

Williams left the final two days of OTAs last week, allegedly in frustration about a lack of time on the field.  He won’t admit that, though.

“I wouldn’t say I was frustrated,” Williams told the Baltimore Sun. “I did my work [in camp]. I
had things I had to take care of.  . . . I would’ve loved to get more reps.  That’s just the way it
was.”

We doubt that skipping practice — for any reason — will help Williams get on the field more.

    He sucks. Please let him go Ozzie. This is all we need:
    Boldin – Mason – Stallworth – Clayton – Reed

    Correction: The Ratbirds added ONE receiver this offseason.
    And they also signed Donte Stallworth(less).

    The Ravens are also high on David Reed who they got in the fifth round. That makes three receivers they have added this offseason.

    @Artmodelspimp – what is going to be freaking hilarious is when Stallworth burns your worthless secondary including 1sr rounder Hayden for a few TD’s this year. And then you can reflect on signing him for a gazillion dollars while we signed him for nearly the vet minimum.

    @ArtModellsPimp-You as a Browns fan only see him worthless because he was used incorrectly in your offensive scheme. Stallworth is a decent #2 receiver however the browns often utilized him as their #1 or #2 with Braylon Edwards. Stallworth is the #3 receiver on the Ravens and will be used effectively from the slot and his speed will be utilized on deep routes to give Baltimore a deep threat that they haven’t had since Patrick Johnson during the 2000 super bowl run.

    ArtModellsPimp: Stallworth was hardly useless for your team, maybe if you had, I dont know… a decent QB? Prob would’ve helped your WR’s don’t ya think? Remember that 1st round CB you just got? Hayden? The guy who spent his college career on the short side bc he’s all physical, zero speed? Yea, even Stallworth will burn his ass this year. Enjoy!

    Ravens fans are going to be highly disappointed when Clayton and Williams are still hanging around, come September.
    First of all, to many people are banking that Stallworth will push either or both of them for their roster spots. Stallworth has been out of football for a year and before that he had 4 teams in 4 seasons, there is a reason for that. He wasnt as good as people thought and he’s one of the more injury prone wr’s in the NFL. People are putting to much stock in him. Compared to Clayton, I’d rather have Clayton as the number 3. He isnt as injury prone and he’s prototypical slot reciever. Before that dropped pass in NE, thats where Ravens fans had wanted to see him for years and now he will finally be there.
    As for Williams, if he can stay healthy and regain some confidence I still like his chances. Not every wide reciever is a game breaker right out of college. See Derrick Mason for an example.

    ^^^ Tools… gotta love em… Bring the hate.. most balanced team in the league this year…. Donte is going to be reinvented.. and for the price we paid for him.. he is a former 1st round pick.. working with the position coach who drafted him in NO.. so… chemistry and communication… coaching staff and roster this year.. stacked… Boldin , mason… 1k yrd seasons as well as stall worth might be able to get 600… running game.. Good Game.

    The Steelers have already ‘unoffically’ contacted him. Ravens leftovers are Steeler’s Starters.
