Ravens’ new free agency begins on Monday with a slate of deals that will make for interesting viewing.
First, the team has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with veteran quarterback Joe Flacco.
The Ravens have a cap hit of $12 million, but that will be reduced to $5 million in 2018 and $4 million in 2019.
Flacco, who has had a tumultuous relationship with coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome, is a free agent, and the Ravens have shown they have no interest in keeping him.
But the team also agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with cornerback Lardarius Webb, who spent time on the Ravens’ practice squad last season.
Webb is a former sixth-round pick of the New England Patriots.
The Ravens also have agreed to two-way contracts with guard Justin Gilbert and defensive tackle Arthur Jones.
The contracts will keep Gilbert under contract through the 2021 season.
The sides are expected to discuss terms on an extension soon.
The next deal comes in the form of a two year deal with defensive end Chris Canty, who is coming off his best season as a Pro Bowl selection with eight sacks and four forced fumbles.
Canty was a seventh-round draft pick by the Baltimore Ravens.
The team also has agreed terms on two-years deals with cornerback Brandon Carr and defensive lineman Joe Thuney.
Both deals are $8 million guaranteed.
Carr, the Ravens No. 2 overall pick in 2015, is the team’s No. 3 overall pick.
Thuney, the No. 8 overall pick of last season, is set to make $5.25 million in 2017.
