The Baltimore Ravens are in a giving mood following their Super Bowl win last month.

Fresh off a $120 million contract for quarterback Joe Flacco earlier this week, the Ravens used wide receiver and New Orleans native Jacoby Jones to lead a press conference Wednesday to donate two customized Harley-Davidson FLHP motorcycles to the New Orleans Police Department as a "thank you" for making Super Bowl XLVII a safe event, according to Jarrett Bell of USATodaySports.com.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu and police superintendent Ronal Serpes were present to accept the donation.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said he wanted to show how much the team, their families and the fans appreciated the treatment they received while in New Orleans:

"We wanted to do something to show our appreciation for how well our team, our families and our fans were treated by everyone representing New Orleans."
The Ravens also took out a full-page ad in Wednesday's edition of the Times-Picayune to express their gratitude for the hospitality shown to them by the people of New Orleans.
