Ravens WR Justin Harper At Crossroads

Wide receiver Justin Harper has been on the Baltimore Ravens Practice Squad the past three years. NFL rules state that a player can only spend three years on a team's Practice Squad, so that means, as it says in the story on Hickory Daily Record, that 2011 will be a make or break year for the former Virginia Tech Hokie.

Harper was hosting a youth football camp with a few other football players, both currently in the NFL or hoping for the phone call that will invite them to an NFL team's Training Camp once the labor dispute is settled. Justin has frustrated both coaches and Ravens fans over the past three seasons, as he has made acrobatic catches in Training Camps each summer, yet also drops easily catch-able balls as well, relegating him to just practicing with the team all season rather than getting a chance to contribute in a real game.

Along with the other players awaiting word that a new Collective Bargaining Agreement has been reached, Harper and the other NFL players at his camp have been staying in shape and plan to be ready as soon as the phone call hopefully comes to each of them.
