Wide receiver update: Ravens to work out D.J. Hackett and 3 others

July 20, 2009 | Luke Jones

After Derrick Mason abruptly announced his retirement last week, the Ravens will try out former Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Hackett on Friday.

Hackett was invited to try out during OTAs but chose to work out with the Houston Texans instead.  The 28-year-old caught 13 passes for 181 yards and no touchdowns in 2008, his only season in Carolina.

He has 118 receptions and nine touchdowns in his five-year career.

The other three receivers set to work out have not been identified at this time.

With Mason and coach John Harbaugh scheduled to meet this week, it figures to be an interesting time in Owings Mills leading up to the start of training camp at McDaniel College next week.

Quarterbacks, rookies, and selected veterans will report on July 27.  WNST.net will bring you live reports, audio, video, and blogs from Westminster.
