From ESPN:

It's official: There has been player movement in the AFC North and it only took 20 hours into free agency for it to happen. The Ravens lost free-agent defensive end Cory Redding to the Indianapolis Colts, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. A three-year, $10.5 million deal will allow Redding to join Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who was Baltimore's defensive coordinator last season. This move does minimal damage to the reigning AFC North champions.

About an hour after defensive end Cory Redding went to the Indianapolis Colts, the Baltimore Ravens took a harder hit when linebacker Jarret Johnson agreed to a four-year deal with the Chargers. Losing Johnson is a bigger blow than many think because he was the most underrated player on the Ravens defense. Baltimore will likely try to replace him with Paul Kruger, but I'm not sold on that. Kruger is a pass rusher who will have trouble setting a physical edge against the run.

I wouldn't say it does minimal damage necessarily. He played in 15 games and had 43 tackles and 5 sacks. Either way it's nice to see them lose someone, it's always nice!

Now they lose Grubbs too..

On Wednesday, the Saints lost guard Carl Nicks (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4828/carl-nicks). They replaced him quickly.
A league source tells PFT that Ravens guard Ben Grubbs (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4212/ben-grubbs) has agreed to terms with the Saints.
The five-year, $36 million contract includes a $10 million signing bonus and $6 million more in fully guaranteed money.
More to come.
