The Ravens-Steelers rivalry got more intrigue as Baltimore has signed former Pittsburgh cornerback Arthur Maulet.
Maulet arrived at the Under Armour Performance Center for the first day of training camp practice.
According to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe, it's a one-year deal worth up to $2 million.
Maulet, 29, was the Steelers' primary nickel cornerback the past two years. Last season, he played in all 17 games (six starts) and made 59 tackles (8th-most on the team), two sacks, and one interception. He also led Pittsburgh in special teams tackles.
Maulet reportedly asked for his release from the Steelers because of a contract dispute. He was entering his second year of a two-year, $3.825 million contract extension and was slated to make $1.79 million in base salary this season with a cap hit of $2.29 million.
Maulet now has a chance to face the Steelers twice this season, but he'll have stiff competition for the job. The Ravens have an opening at the nickel cornerback spot with Kyle Hamilton moving into a starting safety role. Pepe Williams and Ar'Darius Washington are also battling for that job, though Williams is starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
Maulet entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie in 2017 with the New Orleans Saints. He then spent some time with the Indianapolis Colts before bouncing to the New York Jets for two seasons. That's where he saw his first significant action. Over his career, Maulet has played in 68 games (20 starts) and made 183 tackles, 3.0 sacks and three interceptions.
