However, that changed later in the day when the team agreed to the framework of a contract with former Arizona Cardinals speedster John Brown, according to sources.

A third-round pick in 2014, the Cardinals selected Brown out of Pittsburg State after he burst onto the scene with a strong NFL Scouting Combine performance in the 40-yard dash.

The 5-foot-11, 179-pound receiver is coming off a season where he caught 21 passes for 299 yards (both career lows) and three touchdowns.

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.

Brown's production would take a hit the next two years in which he only managed to record 816 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 128 catches, though that could be largely attributed to injury and a bad offense as a whole in Arizona.

Still, Brown could inject some life into the Ravens' air attack that ranked just 29 last season with an average of 189.4 passing yards per game.

In 2017, Brown was plagued all season by a lingering quad injury that he first suffered in training camp and then was dealing with turf toe.

Even with the expected additions of Brown and Grant, the Ravens might not be done at receiver.

Mike Wallace, the team's top receiver the past two years, remains available. The 32-year-old has had over 1,000 yards receiving in four of the past six seasons, but he was slowed considerably last year with just 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdown receptions.
