The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - SPORTS BRIEFS

OWINGS MILLS, MD. | Re­ceiver Jeremy Ma­clin has signed a two-year con­tract with the Bal­ti­more Ravens, who spent much of the off­sea­son look­ing for a deep threat.

Af­ter be­ing cut by Kansas City ear­lier this month, Ma­clin vis­ited Buf­falo and Bal­ti­more last week. He chose the Ravens, who an­nounced the sign­ing on Mon­day.

Ma­clin ful­fills the Ravens’ quest to pro­vide an­other down­field tar­get for quar­ter­back Joe Flacco. Mike Wal­lace re­turns, but Steve Smith won’t be com­ing back af­ter an­nounc­ing his re­tire­ment.

Ma­clin broke into the NFL with the Philadel­phia Ea­gles and spent the last two years with Kansas City. A Pro Bowler in 2014, Ma­clin had 44 catches last year de­spite miss­ing four games with a groin in­jury. His 87 re­cep­tions in 2015 are a ca­reer high and set the Chiefs’ sin­gle-sea­son record by a wide re­ceiver.
