The Baltimore Ravens signed wide receiver Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal on Friday. The move comes after the Ravens had tried and failed to land JuJu Smith-Schuster and T.Y. Hilton in free agency. Based on the warm welcome Watkins’ new teammates gave, it’s clear the team is ready for him to join the locker room.

After the announcement Baltimore and Watkins had agreed to terms, it didn’t take long for several Ravens players to show their excitement on Twitter. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley had one of the better responses. Stanley appears to be pumped up about who’s coming to town and the bump it could give to the offense.

Watkins thanked the team and coaching staff on Twitter for giving him the opportunity and said it would be “one to remember.” At least one of Watkins’ new teammates likes to hear it.

Two of the guys who are likely most excited of all are wide receiver Marquise Brown and quarterback Lamar Jackson. Watkins’ addition to the roster should take a little pressure off Brown while giving Jackson a big-bodied weapon on the outside.
