He was signed just two years prior to be their number one receiver but the Chiefs chose to move on.

Jeremy Maclin has agreed to sign with the Baltimore Ravens on a two-year deal.

After visiting with the Ravens and the Bills last week, Maclin made a decision to head to Baltimore, where could settle into a starting role in three-wideout sets with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman.

Maclin signed with the team four days after the lifetime deal proposal, and took to Twitter to celebrate the occasion.

The franchise announced Wednesday that used an injury waiver to release Pitta, which The Baltimore Sun reports will save the Ravens $2 million in cap space. However, in his last full year in the NFL, Decker caught 80 balls for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns. It can be argued that Bryant is the better player over Maclin at this point in their careers, although we haven't witnessed him play in over a year. Maclin received a Pro Bowl selection in 2014 with the Eagles and was a strong candidate for number one receiver on the Chiefs depth chart when he arrived to Kansas City in 2015. Baltimore has reportedly been in the mix for him, and Schefter reported they remain in the mix. Prior to last season when he dealt with multiple injuries, Maclin had posted back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons with Alex Smith and a combination of Nick Foles/Mark Sanchez as his quarterbacks. He did only play three games last season due to a torn rotator cuff and a torn labrum in his hip - requiring surgery. Team officials still want young receivers Breshad Perriman, Chris Moore and Michael Campanaro to potentially have key roles on offense, but they badly needed another option after losing Smith to retirement and Kamar Aiken to free agency. Mornhinweg was Maclin's offensive coordinator in Philadelphia for his first four seasons.

The Ravens drew ample fan criticism for not selecting a receiver in this year's NFL Draft, despite two of the team's top three leaders in receiving yards departing in the offseason. So could the Eagles pounce on a Decker trade, after missing out on Maclin? According to the National Football League insider, the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens are both expecting a decision on Monday.
