Yet another Baltimore Ravens off-season where Ozzie Newsome worked his magic with a delayed free agent signing. With the front office holding back after the initial free agent frenzy, they come up big with the right players for this team in 2017. Players like Tony Jefferson, Brandon Carr and Danny Woodhead will wear Ravens uniforms this season; also donning the purple & black, new acquisition, Jeremy Maclin.
Maclin might've been the biggest free agent signing the team made. Granted we won't find out for sure until the team hits the field, but you can make the argument. Today, the Ravens announced that Maclin will wear Breshad Perriman's old number, 18. Perriman's new number, 11, was previously worn by former Raven Kamar Aiken. Aiken now plays for the Indianapolis Colts.

Further confirmation from Maclin's first practice as a Raven.
Maclin is officially here in Baltimore, and I'm sure there's going to be many No.18 Maclin jerseys in attendance at M&T Bank Stadium during the 2017 season.
