Ravens, free agent John Brown agree on deal

Ravens, free agent John Brown agree on deal

According to separate reports from Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun and Adam Schefter of ESPN, wide receiver John Brown is very close to a deal with the Ravens.

Grant was drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Redskins out of Tulane University.

The makeover of Baltimore's receiving corps has started. While with the team, Brown's battled through various issues, including injuries and sickle cell trait.

Brown has spent the first four years of his career with the Arizona Cardinals.

Aside from Maclin and Brown, that leaves just Chris Moore, Breshad Perriman, and Quincy Adeboyejo as wide receivers on the roster now, along with DeVier Posey, whom the team intends to sign once free agency begins.

The balls thrown Brown's way decreased in 2016 (72 in 15 games) and 2017 (56 in 10 games) after he was targeted more than 100 times in each of his first two seasons.

His pending deal for the Ravens is a four-year pact for $29 million with $14.5 million guaranteed, per NFL Network. The size of the deal for a player that has never had 600 yards receiving in a season raised some eyebrows around the league.

Even with the expected additions of Brown and Grant, the Ravens might not be done at receiver. Baltimore should continue to pursue wide receivers and could be in the mix for former Packers receiver Jordy Nelson.

Mike Wallace, the team's top receiver the past two years, remains available. His best season came in 2015 when he caught 65 passes for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns.
