Ravens donate two motorcycles to New Orleans police department

The Ravens have decided to show gratitude to New Orleans with a gift.

And the gift, we’re told, is a pair of 2013 Harley Davidson FLHP motorcycles, donated by the team to the New Orleans Police Department Traffic Division.

The announcement will be made by receiver Jacoby Jones at a Wednesday morning press conference.

The Ravens also have purchased an advertisement in the New Orleans Times-Picayune expressing thanks “to the citizens of New Orleans, including your outstanding police department, for your warm reception and first-class service to Ravens players, coaches and fans.”

It’s a unprecedented gesture by the Super Bowl-winning team to the host city, and we have a feeling it will become a trend.

Especially if the Ravens can repeat.

  1. i must say, never been much of a ravens fan..but what a classy move!! ravens, you just earned another routing fan, well at least second to my GIANTS!

  2. Can’t argue with that. Much better than what Ray Lewis did for Atlanta.

  3. Back at ya Baltimore! Nothing but class from an outstanding city and organization.

  4. Had the Ravens won in Indy last year, they would have sent two burning bags of dog poo to Irsay’s front door. In all seriousness though, nice gesture. The people who help facilitate the event don’t usually get the credit they deserve. Surprised this wasn’t a tradition already.

  5. Classy move by a class organization, and I’m proud of it giving something back. New Orleans did a fantastic job of hosting the Super Bowl! The people there couldn’t have been nicer!

  6. I wonder what the Raven organization will give to New York/New Jersey next year?

  7. Being a Ravens fan, this doesn’t surprise me at all. Just another classy move by a great and well-run franchise.

  8. Very classy. Well done. If this becomes the start of a new tradition, it’s definitely a good one.

  9. Nor a surprise. The Ravens organization epitomizes class from top to bottow.

    I was in New Orleans for the Super Bowl and came away as awed as Steve Bisciotti did. That is a fantastic place to hold this event. They should hold it there every 3-4 years.

  10. If one more of you sheep write the word “class, classy, or classiest”, I’m gonna upchuck into my bowl of cream o’ wheat.

  11. Typical Stevie B. Class guy. Hubby and I had tickets to the Super Bowl and went to New Orleans. What an amazing, vibrant city filled with great people. I had a blast and will be back to visit again! Thanks for your amazing hospitality, NOLA!

    Totally agree although it is a big improvement over their usual lingo of “Haters” and “Hate on Haters”

    New Orleans needs it that place is scum.

    Why do you ponder passing?

  14. Not bad, considering the Steelers have been to 8 super bowls and won’t buy those cities a hotdog cooker.

  15. Very classy move by a classy organization. Always great to show gratitude in a way that hasn’t been demonstrated before. It would be a great move for the sport if the trend continued but when you’re the first to do it, it can never be looked at as a trite gesture or simply “tradition”. Great people and great teams do what they think is right, regardless of what others do or have traditionally done. Well done Ravens.
