Ravens release veteran receiver Jeremy Maclin

The Ravens signed a couple of wide receivers of varying degrees of production, so they had to let go of a previous attempt to add some pop to their passing game.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Ravens are releasing Jeremy Maclin.

The move saves $5 million in cap space, and after a 40-catch season, the 29-year-old Maclin was expendable.

The Ravens brought in John Brown and Ryan Grant as replacements for Maclin and free agent Mike Wallace, giving them a new look.

  1. Good riddance.

    He quit on routes, lost track of where he was on the field in Pittsburgh costing the game, and didn’t suit up half the time. So bye Felicia.

  2. When Terrell Owens at 60 or however old he is now would step into your training room and automatically be WR1 – There needs to be some hard personal analysis in about whether or not your talent evaluators can still be referred to as professionals.

  3. Maclin, Wallace, Brown, Grant…it’s sort of like rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. It doesn’t really matter who they keep, that receiving corps is still a disaster.

  4. Can we let Grant and Brown play before we rip the front office . I like that we got two younger guys hungry to play . Grant had a great completion % and Brown has shown he can be a threat. The contracts are both reasonable and yes the 4 year 29 mil is reasonable esp in the 1st and 2nd year ( average under 5mil)) Hopefully we add a Vet and then draft a 1st round stud like Sutton or St.Brown in the 2nd
