Ravens to sign WR Brown

Ravens to sign WR Brown

The contract comes on the eve of free agency and is worth $5 million with incentives up to $6.5 million, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

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.

Brown enters his fifth season with much to prove after health issues limited him over the past two years.

However, his production has dipped in the two seasons since, and he's struggled to stay on the field.

Former Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Denver Broncos
With Denver no longer hunting for the quarterback, the makeup of the upcoming 2018 National Football League draft also changes. Before last season, Keenum had 24 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions in the NFL.

Brown, a third-round pick out of Pittsburg State in 2014, also missed six games with a toe injury past year. He was slowed by injuries previous year and finished with 21 catches for 299 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.

Meanwhile, Grant, 27, had 84 catches for 985 yards and six touchdown receptions in four seasons with Washington. His best season came in 2015 when he caught 65 passes for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns. The deal contains $14.5 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus.

Given Newsome's stated desire to overhaul the position, the Ravens were linked as a possible trade partner with the Miami Dolphins for receiver Jarvis Landry, but he was ultimately dealt to the Cleveland Browns. They could pursue former Green Bay Packers standout Jordy Nelson, who was released Tuesday. During his first two years in the National Football League, his 8.3 YPT was powered by 22 receptions of greater than 20 yards, which fell to 6.4 and seven, respectively, the past two seasons.
