Receiver John Brown will join the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. But much like what general manager Ozzie Newsome pointed to at the National Football League combine, Baltimore is doing a makeover on their wide receiver corps this offseason.
Per a Sirius XM report, the one-year deal will be worth $5 million, with an additional $1.5 million achievable through incentives.
Aside from Maclin and Brown, that leaves just Chris Moore, Breshad Perriman, and Quincy Adeboyejo as wide receivers on the roster now, along with DeVier Posey, whom the team intends to sign once free agency begins. He was diagnosed with the sickle cell trait during the 2016 season, and then-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians suggested that the condition led to Brown dealing with persistent hamstring injuries.
Brown was selected in the third round (No. 91 overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Cardinals. Brown would spend the first four seasons of his pro career in Arizona, and is unlikely to return to the desert, as his original four-year deal with the Cards expires this year. His best year came in 2017 when he had 45 catches for 573 yards and four touchdown receptions. The deal contains $14.5 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus.
Even with the expected additions of Brown and Grant, the Ravens might not be done at receiver. He had over 1,000 receiving yards in 2015, but his last two season have been a struggle.
Mike Wallace, the team's top receiver the past two years, remains available.
