Ravens face roster winnowing at PK, WR

Shayne Graham is regarded as a strong favorite to win the Ravens' PK job, and with Baltimore unlikely to carry two kickers, Billy Cundiff faces a battle to make the roster. However, Cundiff, who hit 18-of-23 field goals last season, could hold appeal to other PK-needy teams if he doesn't make the Ravens, and the same can be said for Graham.

As that training-camp competition plays out, the Ravens will also have to decide how to fill out their WR corps. There is speculation that veterans Mark Clayton and Demetrius Williams, whose roles are likely to diminish with the additions of Anquan Boldin and Donté Stallworth, aren't locks to make the club. Clayton has 59 career regular-season starts to his credit, while Williams possesses good size and speed. Clayton and Williams were two of the receivers who made the Ravens' Week One roster last season; they carried five wideouts on their opening-week roster in 2008, John Harbaugh's first season as head coach. The Ravens currently have 10 receivers on the roster.
