    During day two of the NFL's Free Agency Negotiation Period, the Ravens saw another batch of former players find homes elsewhere. The biggest surprise is linebacker C.J. Mosley agreeing to a deal with the New York Jets. According to multiple reports, Mosley is set to receive a massive 5-year deal for $85 million, with $51 million guaranteed. The contract would make him the highest paid middle linebacker in league history. The 26 year old is coming off his 4th career Pro Bowl appearance and helped lead the NFL's top ranked defense.

    But Mosley is not alone, outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith has agreed to sign with the Green Bay Packers. According to his agent, the deal is worth $66 million over 4 years, with $20 million guaranteed. Smith led the Ravens with eight and a half sacks last season. Green Bay is also adding free agent safety Adrian Amos, who played high school at Calvert Hall College in Towson, MD.

    On the offensive side of the ball, wide receiver John Brown is leaving Charm City after one season. Brown will sign a 3-year deal with the Bills. Last season Brown led the Ravens with 5 receiving touchdowns to go along with 42 receptions for 715 yards, but saw his production in the offense drop when the team made the switch from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson at quarterback.

    No deal can become official until after 4pm Wednesday.
