Cole considers those three teams to be the “strongest candidates” for Aiken at this point in time.
Aiken, 27, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of UCF back in 2011. He lasted just over a year in Buffalo before signing on to the Bears’ practice squad during the 2012 season.
Aiken spent less than a year in New England before he eventually joined the Ravens during the 2013 season. Last year, Baltimore brought Aiken back on a one-year, restricted tender, so this will be his first opportunity to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2016, Aiken appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and caught 29 passes for 328 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 92 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
