The departures continue to mount for the Baltimore Ravens.
Cornerback Cary Williams, a starter for the Ravens each of the last two seasons, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a deal worth $17 million over three years and includes $10.5 million in guaranteed money, according to multiple reports.
Williams is the fourth starter from Baltimore's Super Bowl winning team that the team has either lost as a free agent or parted ways with since Monday. That doesn't even include pass rush specialist Paul Kruger, the Ravens' leader in sacks last season, who signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Cleveland Browns Tuesday.
But Williams' departure shouldn't come as much of a surprise.
Baltimore is deep at cornerback with a group that includes Lardarius Webb, Corey Graham, Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown and, with around just $10 million in space under the salary cap and other needs they're still expected to look to address, it would've been a surprise for the Ravens to pay significant money in order to retain Williams.
