The Baltimore Ravens napped a difference-maker in the offense by signing former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on Monday to a two-year deal. The Chiefs released him earlier in the month.
Maclin was a surprise release from the Chiefs after Maclin suffered with groin injuries last season, causing him to miss four games. Last season, he had a career low 44 receptions for 536 yards and two touchdowns. In 2015, he recorded 87 receptions for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2014 while with the Philadelphia Eagles, he recorded 85 receptions for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. During all of his previous seasons, he topped 700 receiving yards. He had one bad season and BAM, he was released. The Chiefs had previously signed him to a five-year, $55 million dollar contract in 2015 so they must have had some faith in him. Oh well, an injured player. They did not waste any time on him. He is only 29 years old and still has plenty of juice in the tank.
He met with the Buffalo Bills and paid them a two-day visit last week but left and did not sign. He visited Baltimore but did not sign immediately. He had a little coaching from Baltimore’s famous Jimmy’s Seafood:

I would like to take this time to personally thank Jimmy’s Seafood for their generously. Can you imagine that? Free crab cakes from Jimmy’s for life! Wow! I am jealous!! Now, Maclin will be on the field with wide outs Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. Perriman is expected to have a break-out season. Flacco should have no problem finding targets.
Now, Maclin signed his contract and got his crab cake deal. Now, it’s time for Maclin to make the Chiefs regret releasing him.
