Wide Learning For Tommy Streeter
Jul/06/12 08:50 AM Filed in: Tommy Streeter
Tommy Streeter has already learned an important lesson: Listen to Anquan Boldin most of the time, but not necessarily all of the time.
Via an interview at baltimoreravens.com, the rookie wide receiver talked about why, after catching a touchdown pass in a red-zone drill at minicamp, he punted the ball. Streeter said he’d heard Boldin shouting from the sideline that the punt would be an appropriate way to celebrate. The Ravens coaches informed Streeter that such wasn’t the case.
However, Streeter said he’s soaking up knowledge from veteran receiver Boldin.
“He’s an unbelievable guy, full of knowledge and experience in the game, very passionate. …” Streeter said. “I just look at the way he approaches the game, how he prepares himself for practice. He’s been giving me tips for getting open.”
Streeter said he also has enjoyed going up against cornerback Lardarius Webb, known to talk a little trash on the field.
“He kind of brings a different element to the game,” Streeter said. “You know, it’s fun. It’s no fun when it’s a quiet practice out there and everybody is serious.”
Streeter, taken in the sixth round, is potentially a steal if he can harness some of the potential he showed at Miami, and a 6-foot-5 wideout could come in handy in the red zone.
