AFC North loses two corners in free agency
By Jamison Hensley
The AFC North lost two cornerbacks in free agency Thursday afternoon, when the Baltimore Ravens' Cary Williams signed with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Keenan Lewis agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints.
Both of these departures were expected when free agency began.
Williams signed a three-year, $17 million deal with $10.5 million guaranteed, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Lewis signed a five-year contract with the Saints, but the numbers weren't announced.
I'll have more on these signings.
UPDATE: According to Schefter, Lewis signed a five-year deal with New Orleans that has a maximum value of $26.3 million including a $10.5 million signing bonus.
