T.J. Houshmandzadeh scored the game winning touchdown for the Ravens when they played the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, but the veteran wide receiver still is not satisfied with his role on the team.
Houshmandzadeh currently has five receptions in Baltimore’s four games, but he claims that the Ravens indicated he would have around 50-60 receptions over the course of the entire season.
“For me, I knew coming in what I was getting myself into,” Houshmandzadeh told the Baltimore Sun. “But I believe in myself. So the belief in myself said once they see me, things will change. We’ll see if that holds to be true.”
Houshmandzadeh said that he has never approached either offensive coordinator Cam Cameron nor starting quarterback Joe Flacco about his concerns, but he is still saddened by his role on the team’s offense.
“Q [Anquan Boldin] is going to be happy. That’s just the reality of it,” Houshmandzadeh said. “Q and [tight end Todd] Heap, they’re going to get their balls. They brought Q in, they gave up draft picks and gave him a nice contract. They’re going to find ways to get him the ball. I can appreciate that because I thought that’s what I was getting [in Seattle]. I wish it was me. But it’s not.
