Free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin left his meetings with the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens without a deal.

Marc Sessler of NFL.com reported that while Ravens coach John Harbaugh enjoyed Maclin's visit, he offered no assurance that a deal was imminent. However, Harbaugh said Maclin needs more time to decide on his next move.

"The main thing is, you want guys to be happy. If they come here, or wherever they go, you want them to look back and say, 'I made the best decision of my life to do that," said Harbaugh.

Maclin also met with the Bills this week but couldn't agree over the financial aspects of a potential contract, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network.

The Bills were expected to sign Maclin and reunite him with former Philadelphia Eagles teammate LeSean McCoy, who has openly called for Buffalo to sign the veteran wideout after he was recently released by the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to Garafolo, around four or five teams are expected to pursue the 29-year-old Maclin despite coming off an injury-plagued down season. Among those interested are the Cleveland Browns.

Earlier, the Eagles were reported to be interested in a reunion with Maclin but Pro Football Talk reported that head coach Doug Pederson is not interested in adding the veteran to their receiving group "at this time".

Pederson said he's contented with his current group of receivers, including Torrey Smith, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews and rookies Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson.

One year after missing the 2013 season with a torn ACL, Maclin made it to the Pro Bowl in 2014 after tallying 1,318 receiving yards and 10 touchdown receptions.

The following year, Maclin bolted the Eagles and signed a five-year, $55 million deal with the Chiefs, where he posted 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns in his first year.

However, Maclin was hampered by injuries in his second year, tallying just 44 catches for 536 yards and two touchdowns.
