Baltimore is now down to five wide receivers. I like what they have though. Doss will probably take what few snaps Stokley has seen lately. Scott hadn't done anything before he was cut to activate Pitta.

Stokely hasn't done much this season, but I feel as though he has made some pretty clutch catches at varying points on the year that I would not trust Doss to make. Not to say I don't think Doss is the better receiver at this point in their respective careers, but I feel as though Stokley had been one of the more reliable targets for Joe when he could get on the field.

Stokley filled in Pitta's role closer than Clark. I think Stokley was a bit more spry. Glad we had him, but we got the real thing back.

Stokley had 20 targets on the season and 14 of those came in the first two games. I know he was hurt for a stretch but Brandon was barely been on the field after he came back. His presence on the field was negligible in my opinion.

Eh, none issue to me. Stokley hardly plays and with Pitta back it only makes sense to IR him and bring in a 3rd RB for the playoffs just in case.

Yeah, Stokley might've been good for those clutch 3rd down catches and all... but I think Tandon Doss is a bigger keep. He's proven to be a talented punt returner in conjunction with making some plays as a receiver on occasion.

And so he therefore offers better insurance for our WR group as well as our special teams.
