Let’s hope Jeremy Maclin never tires of crab cakes.
The former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver agreed to join the Baltimore Ravens as a free agent on Monday, reportedly choosing a two-year deal with Baltimore over the Philadelphia Eagles.
One of Maclin’s first orders of business should be to head straight to Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, a Baltimore restaurant which last week offered him free crab cakes for life if he joined the local team.
Maclin was aware of Jimmy’s Famous Seafood offer and seemingly intends to collect on the promise.
The Ravens are hoping Maclin can help fill the void in their passing game Steve Smith’s retirement and Dennis Pitta’s injury-induced release. Maclin will headline a new-look receiving corps which also includes Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman.
Maclin struggled last season, but if he can meet or exceed his seven-season average of 68 catches, 900-plus yards and six touchdowns while in Baltimore, the Ravens won’t care how many crab cakes he eats.
Jimmy’s Famous Seafood probably would be perfectly happy to pay such an effective player in product.
