Incentivizing contracts is nothing new in the NFL, so the fact that it took an offer for free crab cakes to get Jeremy Maclin to sign on the dotted line with the Baltimore Ravens should come as no surprise.
Here’s the exchange between him and Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, a restaurant in Baltimore.
Free crab cakes for the length of your deal if you sign with the @Ravens.
Shake on it. 🤝

Beats a little extra bonus money any day.
This is the gift that keeps on giving – for life!
