Cornerback Wilson agrees to deal with Redskins

According to reports, cornerback Josh Wilson has agreed to a deal with the Washington Redskins.

The deal is for three years at $13.5 million, with $6 million guaranteed.

A free agent, Wilson showed great promise last season in Baltimore, starting the second half of the season after replacing Lardarius Webb in the Ravens’ secondary.

The team acquired Wilson last September from Seattle for a fifth-round pick.

With Wilson off to Washington, more attention will likely turn to cornerback Chris Carr. The Ravens were hoping to keep Wilson, but will now have to move forward without him.

Also, for fans itching to get their first, and possibly only glance at the 2011 Ravens, the team will hold its first open practice Saturday, August 6 at M&T Bank Stadium.

With the lockout forcing teams to make adjustments, the Ravens declared they would not hold training camp at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, but instead hold it at their team facilities in Owings Mills.

Because the grounds can’t hold the expected number of fans, the Ravens have closed practices to the public, meaning the practice on Aug. 6 may be the only chance for fans to see the team up close.

Practice is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Gates will open at 9 a.m.
