The Baltimore Ravens have gone out of their way to show thanks to the city of New Orleans for the experience they had while they were visiting for Super Bowl XLVII. Of course, the Ravens experience was especially great after defeating the San Francisco 49ers and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, but their gesture of kindness is still impressive.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Ravens have donated a pair of 2013 Harley Davidson FLHP motorcycles to the New Orleans Police Department Traffic Division.

Ravens wide receiver, Dancing With The Stars cast member and New Orleans native Jacoby Jones will be making the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday. Jones will present the motorcycles, but the Ravens didn’t stop there.

Baltimore also took out an ad in the New Orleans Times-Picayune that read: “to the citizens of New Orleans, including your outstanding police department, for your warm reception and first-class service to Ravens players, coaches and fans.”

Here is an image of the ad:

There hasn’t been a story like this surface in the past, but we hope to see it become a more common gesture from the Super Bowl winning teams.

    That’s first class.Thanks Ravens. Wow. It just shows you that New Orleans is Second to NONE when it comes to hosting the Superbowl. I haven’t heard that happening any where else.
    New Orleans 300th anniversary in 2018: sounds like another year for New Orleans to be hosting the Superbowl and a good bet to keep New Orleans in a permanent rotation for Superbowls thereafter. .

    No thank you from the 49ers?

    Thats really cool to see the city give back that like. No other city has the passion for the football team as Baltimore and it clearly shows here through the moves of our organization.. I loved watching the coverage of New Orleans, and have lived there during my childhood. This move is a great way to show the love for the beautiful host city of the Ravens Championship!

    I’m a college student in Rhode Island right now and was wondering what your favorite moment of the Super Bowl was?
