During this week's Baltimore Ravens chat, we discussed the situations at wide receiver and fullback as well as which player deserves a contract extension. If you want the full transcript, you can click here. These are some highlights:

Alex (Sonora): If you had the chance today to trade Steve Smith for Anquan Boldin, would you?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Interesting question. It's close but I would go with Boldin. I feel he has more left, and you already know he has an established chemistry with Flacco.

Joe (Mobile): Which wide receivers make the 53-man roster?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Steve Smith, Torrey Smith, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones, Jeremy Butler.

Mike (Mobile): No love for Michael Campanaro?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): He will likely get redshirted and either be placed on IR or practice squad.

Mitchell (Rockville): I've read several articles on ESPN, claiming the Ravens didn't do enough this offseason to improve the offense around Joe Flacco. But with Dennis Pitta, Kelechi Osemele, and Marshal Yanda now healthy, are we really that far from being a playoff-caliber team?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): I would say the Ravens have a better chance at making a championship run with this year's team than last year's one.

Jay (Toronto): Can Kyle Juszczyk adequately replace Vonta Leach? Should they look to bring in another fullback? Perhaps Michael Robinson or Hard Knocks' own, "The Terminator" John Conner?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Juszczyk will be the top fullback, but I wouldn't say he is replacing Leach. They're two different fullbacks. Juszczyk is more versatile and athletic. And the Ravens will only carry one fullback this year. Not sure any team other than the Ravens had two fullbacks on their roster last season.

Ryan (Boston):Who's more important to lock up long term, Haloti Ngata or Justin Tucker?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): I would say Tucker because he has more upside, but Ngata can still be a game-changer. You just don't know how many years Ngata has left.
