On the heels of free agent Jeremy Maclin’s visit with the Bills Tuesday are reports of a scheduled Wednesday visit with the Ravens.
The attraction for a free agent receiver with the Ravens is the prospect of being Joe Flacco’s top target. Breshad Perriman hasn’t established himself as a consistent threat early in his career and Mike Wallace is a one dimensional receiver. Maclin could be a true number one there.
The problem for the Ravens is they wouldn’t be able to pay him like a number one unless they released a player with a big salary on their roster.
Baltimore has just $3.6M of space under the cap per overthecap.con calculations. Buffalo has $9M more in space ($12.6M).
That could largely impact Maclin’s decision unless he’s satisfied with taking a one-year deal in the hopes of putting up big production and cash in next year in free agency when 32 clubs can bid for his services instead of just a few.
If he’s looking for more than a one-year commitment from a club that could also change who has the edge in landing him.
