Kamar Aiken WR BAL 12 Days
Aiken, who caught four passes for 46 yards on six targets, was one of the Ravens' first bubble receivers to enter Thursday's preseason opener against the 49ers, CSN Baltimore reports.
According to the Ravens' official website, Aiken is competing with six other players for the No. 5 wide receiver role. He was the only one of the bunch to stand out during Thursday's game, but with the team's top four wide receivers seemingly locked in, Aiken is unlikely to have a significant role on offense this season. If the Ravens opt to carry a sixth wideout, they'll likely make the final roster decision with special teams in mind. That probably wouldn't bode well for Aiken, but it does sound like he's separating himself for the No. 5 role.

Patriots waived or released WR Kamar Aiken, CB Brandon Jones, LB Niko Koutouvides, CB LeQuan Lewis and LS Mike Zupancic.
Aiken has made three career appearances, but caught zero passes. A nine-year veteran, Koutouvides appeared in 14 games as a special teamer last season, but played just nine snaps on defense. Lewis will look to latch on elsewhere as a special teamer.

ESPN Boston gives WR Kamar Aiken a "20 percent" chance to make the Patriots' 53-man roster.
It's the same news source that said it would be a "mistake to overlook" Aiken's "potential to be a factor" in the Patriots' receiver competition last month. It's going to be awfully tough for Aiken to leapfrog the likes of Michael Jenkins, Lavelle Hawkins, Josh Boyce, and Aaron Dobson, barring injury.

ESPN Boston thinks it would be a "mistake to overlook" Kamar Aiken's "potential to be a factor" in the Patriots' receiver competition.
Aiken, originally signed by the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Central Florida in 2011, has appeared in three NFL games and has zero catches to his name. He does have an intriguing blend of size (6-foot-2, 213) and speed (4.45 forty), but we wouldn't expect him to be a serious candidate for snaps.

BuffaloBills.com expects Kamar Aiken to push for the Bills' final receiver spot.
An undrafted free agent out of UCF last season, Aiken was active for two games, but spent the majority of the year on the practice squad. Aiken has good size at 6-foot-2, 213 pounds, but is going to face a very steep challenge cracking the Bills' crowded receiver corps. He's not on the dynasty-league radar.
