Both players were on the roster last season; they are working hard with hopes of being added again.
Last season, Doss was only active for six games, targeted twice with no catches; so far he has been impressive in training camp.
Doss made a number of nice catches in traffic. The sure-handed receiver also showed off a burst of speed to get by defenders, and Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron said it was the best practice he’d ever seen from Doss.
He needs to stay healthy, he already missed Monday’s practice because of a tweaked hamstring and no timetable has been set for his return.
Williams has also been impressive in camp, he’s shown his speed when getting past defensive backs.
He saw more activity than Doss did last season and he also helped on special teams. In 2011, Williams caught four passes for 46 yards. Two of the grabs occurred during a pivotal road game against the Steelers.
Williams knows how hard he needs to work to make the roster:
“I’m pretty much trying to prove that I belong here,” Williams said. “Every day I come out and get that stigma off my back that I’m an undrafted free agent. Just come out every day and try to stand out. It’s definitely a chip that I hold on my shoulder.”
Last season, the Ravens kept five wide receivers on the roster, no word as to how many they plan to keep in 2012.
