Could Decker be on Deck?

Jeremy Maclin has signed a 2-year deal with the Ravens and will join a receiving corps that currently includes Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman, Chris Moore and Michael Campanaro, among others.

The deal is a relatively rich one for this time of year, when available free agents who don’t factor into the compensatory pick formula, are obtained at bargain basement prices.

NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reported the following via Twitter.

Drawing from his vast experience in Ravens player contracts, RSR’s Brian McFarland speculates on the structure of Maclin’s new deal.

Maclin’s new contract will certainly make the Ravens relatively tight cap situation even more restricted around the waist. It also leaves one wondering about the validity of the reports that the Ravens remain in the running for the services of wide receiver Eric Decker, who was recently released by the New York Jets.

How could the Ravens afford to pay Decker?

Team insiders are hearing conflicting stories and that might stem from some mixed emotions within the confines of team headquarters in Owings Mills. Some are rumored to be happy with what the Ravens now have, now that Maclin has been added. Others are said to want to go “balls to the wall”.

There are many things that the team’s capologist Pat Moriarty can do to get creative if the Ravens really want to make a run at Decker. Doing so is likely to put a lid on Campanaro’s career as a member of the Ravens and it would clearly take snaps away from Moore.

Let’s just hope that whatever they do, the Ravens leave a little coin in their bank account for a right tackle.

The new toys won’t work if Joe Flacco is on his back.
