Jeremy Maclin is headed to Baltimore.
The 29-year-old Pro Bowl wide receiver made his choice between the Ravens and Bills on Monday, opting to join quarterback Joe Flacco and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg on a two-year contract. Mornhinweg held the same position in Philadelphia during Maclin's early years in the NFL.
While no veteran available this late in the offseason can make or break a season, the Maclin decision will have a significant ripple effect for the Bills. Desperate to add punch to their passing game alongside Sammy Watkins, Maclin represented the type of experienced veteran coveted by head coach Sean McDermott and running back LeSean McCoy. McCoy openly lobbied for the Maclin signing over the last two weeks.
