Anquan Boldin, Donte Stallworth Make Impact on Baltimore Ravens Offense

Old AccountSenior Writer IMay 23, 2010

The Baltimore Ravens took the field last week for passing OTAs, which gives the fans and the media a lot to talk about.

The additions of Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth to the offense gives Baltimore depth at the receiver position, which has been questioned for many years.

Through the few months Boldin and Stallworth have been members of the Ravens, it appears both receivers are making great strides with Joe Flacco and are showing it on the field.

Boldin was seen showing off his great slant routes like he did in Arizona. This play is one of the better plays Joe Flacco has been comfortable in since he entered the league.

Donte Stallworth, on the other hand, has surprised many with the speed he's shown in camp.

Many believed Donte couldn't become a deep route, as he was expected to lose quite a few steps by being out of the NFL.

Stallworth did vow he was going to work very hard to stay with a team in his second opportunity.

It all makes sense what the Ravens saw in Stallworth, who looks to be a great slot runner for Flacco.

As the Flacco era begins its third season, the weapons around Joe are the best he has ever had.

Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth are two players who are in Baltimore for fresh starts, and look to prove the doubters wrong.

The emergence of these receivers has brought a competition at the bottom of the depth chart like we have never seen.

Both of these offseason moves can only be a positive for the Ravens in a long run, as the offense tries to become the center of attention for the Ravens for years to come.
