Kamar Aiken caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Eagles.
Aiken's second target was poorly-thrown ball that resulted in a Joe Flacco interception. Running with the first-team offense in the absence of Breshad Perriman, Aiken has just one grab through two preseason games. He's not on the re-draft radar. Aug 22 - 11:59 PM

Kamar Aiken is listed with the first-team offense on the Ravens' first depth chart of training camp.

Crockett Gillmore is also ahead of rookie Maxx Williams at tight end, as expected. Aiken's primary competition is first-round pick Breshad Perriman, who opened camp with the first-team offense but "bruised and strained" his knee in the Ravens' first practice, and has been on the shelf ever since. To win the starting job, Perriman needs to get back on the field to beat out the steady Aiken.
Aug 6 - 7:02 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken "consistently" practiced with the first-team offense at spring workouts, ahead of Breshad Perriman.

The Ravens aren't handing a starting job to first-round pick Perriman, who "needs to become more consistent" after showing a propensity for dropped passes in OTAs and minicamp. Perriman also struggled with drops at UCF. Unlike the Panthers last year with Kelvin Benjamin, the Ravens seem hesitant to throw Perriman into the fire. This is a camp battle to watch throughout August.
Jul 28 - 8:04 PM

The Baltimore Sun suggests Kamar Aiken is a legitimate competitor for the Ravens' No. 2 receiver job across from Steve Smith.

His competition is first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman. The Sun also leaves the door open for Aiken to serve as a third wide receiver, "or splitting time with Marlon Brown" behind Smith and Perriman. Our money is on Perriman winning the job, but we wouldn't entirely sleep on Aiken. Aiken is running with the first-team offense at spring practices, where he's "executed a series of acrobatic sideline catches and flashed speed on deep routes for touchdowns."

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken is running with the first-team offense at OTAs.

The Ravens aren't handing the job opposite Steve Smith Sr. to first-round pick Breshad Perriman just yet. While Perriman's talent is very likely to win out in the end, he had enough red flags coming out of UCF that this could be something of a battle to watch. Aiken is no slouch himself, running 4.45 at 6-foot-1, 213 and coming off a 24-267-3 line as a sub-package receiver.
Jun 3 - 10:30 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken is in the mix for a starting job right now.

Right now, the Ravens have senior citizen Steve Smith, Aiken, Marlon Brown and Michael Campanaro at wideout. They'll likely add talent to the position at some point in the draft, but Ozzie Newsome never drafts for need. So Aiken, a longtime reserve and special teamer, is at least in the mix for a rotational role in a Marc Trestman scheme that will have pass-game volume.
Apr 21 - 11:33 AM

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Kamar Aiken to a one-year, $585,000 contract.

A fifth-year undrafted free agent, Aiken scored three touchdowns over the Ravens' final five games last season. For the regular season, he caught 24 passes for 267 yards. He'll have the inside track on a roster spot, especially with Torrey Smith poised to walk in free agency.
Mar 9 - 3:57 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 1-of-2 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Aiken capped off Baltimore's opening drive with a diving 19-yard score. It was his fourth touchdown of 2014-15, and third since the calendar flipped to December. A fourth-year undrafted free agent, Aiken posted a 24/267/3 regular-season line after previously never catching a pass. A restricted free agent going on 26, Aiken should be back in 2015 to compete for one of the Ravens' final receiver spots.
Jan 10 - 9:15 PM

Kamar Aiken was held without a catch on one target in Baltimore's Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

With Torrey Smith (knee) active, Aiken was sent back to a deep-reserve and special-teams role. He didn't go unnoticed, however, as Aiken scooped up a blocked punt for an 11-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Marlon Brown ran as the Ravens' No. 3 receiver and led the team with 5-66 on five targets.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:36:00 PM

Filling in for Torrey Smith (knee), Kamar Aiken caught 6-of-7 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 14 win over the Dolphins.

Aiken rotated series with Smith early on, but took over opposite Steve Smith Sr. after Torrey's pain apparently became too much. It was a nice day for the fourth-year undrafted free agent, but one he won't repeat even if Smith is inactive for Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:13:00 PM

Kamar Aiken caught three passes for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Chargers.

Marlon Brown left early with a concussion, allowing Aiken to run as the No. 3 receiver. He had one brutal drop while wide open, but secured the rest of his targets. Even if Brown can't go in Week 14, Aiken won't be a viable play at Miami.

Kamar Aiken (concussion) is probable for Week 7 against the Falcons.

Aiken suffered a mild concussion last week. He's been cleared to play without missing any time. Marlon Brown is also listed as probable and will return after sitting out Week 6.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 07:32:00 PM

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.
