Ravens give back to New Orleans
BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens have donated two motorcycles to the New Orleans Police Department Traffic Division as a show of appreciation for the treatment the team received during the week of the Super Bowl.
While in New Orleans, the Ravens received police escorts to and from their destinations, as well as 24-hour security protection.
Team owner Steve Bisciotti says the Ravens provided two 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycles to the New Orleans police force "to show our appreciation for how well our team, our families and our fans were treated by everyone representing New Orleans."
Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, a New Orleans native, presented the gift on behalf of the organization this morning in New Orleans.
New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu and police superintendent Ronal Serpas accepted the motorcycles.
