Following Williams' signing with the Eagles, the Ravens' defense has now lost three starters from their 2012 Super Bowl team.
After parting ways with "Dream Team" members Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Eagles announced on Thursday that they have signed CB Cary Williams to a three-year deal worth up to $17 million.

Williams joins the Eagles following a four-year stint with the Baltimore Ravens, where he earned a starting role after being drafted by the Titans in the seventh round of the 2008 draft. His signing with the Eagles marks the third major defensive free agent loss for the Ravens following their Super Bowl season.
Along with Williams, the Eagles have also signed CB Fletcher Bradley from the Rams, FS Patrick Chung from the Patriots, and SS Kenny Phillips from the Giants, in a series of moves that rapidly overhauled their defensive secondary. This is now the second year in a row that the Eagles have been major players in the free agent market, despite the failure of last year's free agency "Dream Team."
