Baltimore continues to be one of the busiest teams on the first day of free agency. The Ravens signed cornerback Domonique Foxworth to a four-year, $28 million deal that includes $16.5 million guaranteed.
Falcons free-agent linebacker Michael Boley was at the Phoenix airport Friday, preparing to fly to New York for a visit with the Giants. Boley would be an ideal Giants linebacker and the fact they’re brining him in the first day indicates New York is serious about signing him.
