Ravens to present gift to New Orleans

The Baltimore Ravens has shown their gratitude to their Super Bowl-winning quarterback by giving him a six-year, $120.6 million contract.

The Ravens plan a gesture for New Orleans that likely will be somewhat less costly.

The team has announced that, at a press conference to be conducted on Wednesday, the Ravens will “present Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas with a generous gift.”

The presentation will be made by Ravens receiver, New Orleans native, and Dancing With The Stars contestant Jacoby Jones.

The specific nature of the gift isn’t yet known.  Possibilities include crab cakes, or a leg lamp.

    Definition of class. So proud of this franchise. World Champions!

    Well a leg lamp is a no brainer…because its…you know…a major award.

    You think the Steelers would do something like this? Never in a million years.

    Probably going to give them super bowl rings too

    Perhaps the gift is the right to build new franchises of Flacco Cakes, makers of America’s finest “Crab Cakes for Champions”. That contract won’t pay for itself, at least not as well with a little help from some friendly business partners.

    50% discount to all community service workers too. It’s all about giving back to the community in the end.

    A new relay for the Superdome?

  7. TheWallyChamp says: Mar 5, 2013 6:50 PM

    Please god let it be the leg lamp.

  8. calibear831 says: Mar 5, 2013 7:01 PM

    A new power line?

    Class move. Thank you, Ravens

    Good stuff, Florio.

    They should probably send Rahim Moore a little something as well.

  14. filthymcnasty1 says: Mar 5, 2013 7:45 PM

    Hopefully the leg lamp will be battery operated.

    Great job Ravens, but they are acting like no one has ever won a super bowl before. Especially that they haven’t (which of course they have). Score the TD then hand the ball to the ref. Score again, repeat.

  16. nomoreseasontix says: Mar 5, 2013 7:48 PM

    I’d take the leg lamp.
    It’s a major award, you know.

  17. nirvana504 says: Mar 5, 2013 7:49 PM

    As a NOLA resident, I throughly enjoyed meeting and interacting with the fans from Baltimore. They were really cool, plus we got to rag on The Steelers

  18. crownofthehelmet says: Mar 5, 2013 7:53 PM

    They also recently gave a generous gift to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Cleveland. Wasted $120M to ensure mediocrity.

  19. yinzer7 says: Mar 5, 2013 8:26 PM

    Number of playoff wins over the last two years for the Steelers, Bengals and Browns combined? ZERO

  20. steelcurtainn says: Mar 5, 2013 8:48 PM

    The Ravens need to give the gift to the refs (especially on that last drive) not New Orleans.

  21. axespray says: Mar 5, 2013 8:54 PM

    Steeler fan complaining about a team needing the refs in order to secure a Superbowl win ?

    After superbowl 40 – steeler fans have no right to complain about the officials ….ever.

  22. calicokiller49 says: Mar 5, 2013 9:22 PM

    they should give em a gift, the whole stadium was decorated with purple and giant pics of ravens players all around the dome. it was rather odd.

  23. peopletrains says: Mar 5, 2013 10:23 PM

    A new electrical grid?

  24. boozeshoes says: Mar 5, 2013 10:32 PM

    Those are both good presents

  25. changeup39 says: Mar 6, 2013 12:29 AM

    A generator!

  26. goodellmustgo says: Mar 6, 2013 5:43 AM

    The Baltimore Ravens are the best organization in football today. Bar none.

  27. scoobies05 says: Mar 6, 2013 7:35 AM

    hey crown…the steelers will be lucky to even see mediocrity any time soon. enjoy looking up in the standings at the other teams in the division

  28. crownofthehelmet says: Mar 6, 2013 11:02 AM

    real smart scoobie, the Steelers were just 8-8, mediocre.

  29. ampatsisahypocrite says: Mar 6, 2013 10:08 PM

    “The presentation will be made by Ravens receiver, New Orleans native, real MVP of the Super Bowl and Dancing With The Stars contestant Jacoby Jones.”

    There, fixed it for you.
