On Monday the Ravens signed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to a two year contract. Baltimore desperately needed the wide receiver help brought in with Maclin, but the team may not be done.
Another recently cut receiver, Eric Decker, has been projected to Baltimore as a possible fit. Even now despite the Maclin signing, there is still the possibility that the Ravens also sign Decker.
Signing Maclin and possibly Decker would bring the Ravens receiving group from one of the most talent shallow to one of the deepest.
The Current Presumptive Wide Receiver Depth Chart:
- Mike Wallace
- Jeremy Maclin
- Breshad Perriman
- Chris Moore / Michael Camparano
Bringing in Decker would put him at least in the third wide receiver slot. Even without Decker though, the receiving group looks a lot better than it did a week ago.
One problem in adding another receiver is the team’s commitment to Breshad Perriman. Perriman was a first round pick in 2015 who has yet to put up first round numbers in his two years in the league. Ravens officials want to give him a shot, perhaps preventing them adding another receiver.

Regardless of the Decker situation, signing Maclin gives the Ravens a very solid 1-2 punch. If Perriman can finally round into form he could be a solid number three as well. Signing Decker would certainly make Baltimore Ravens fans very happy, but team officials will have the final say.
