Corey Graham set to visit the Redskins

Redskins are the first visit.

The Ravens didn't make it a priority to retain cornerback Corey Graham prior to the start of free agency, but they'd certainly like to have him back at the right price.

As Baltimore's own Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports, Graham will make his first free agent visit with the Redskins.

The Redskins aren't ever shy about spending money during free agency and not only are they competing with an initial offer to Graham from the Ravens, it appears they'll have to battle off members of their own division as the Giants and Eagles are also rumored to have interest.

Graham arrived in Baltimore as a free agent two years ago and quickly shed his special teams label. He proved he could contribute on defense after filling in for Jimmy Smith, was lost for significant amount of time with a sports hernia.

Last season, Graham was instrumental in nickel formations as he allowed fellow cornerback Lardarius Webb to shift over and cover slot receivers.

The decision to stay in Baltimore will likely mean Graham is going to have to leave money on the table as it should be expected that one of the NFC East teams will outbid the Ravens. This is likely going to be Graham's final significant contract, so he'll likely make a business decision and follow the money now that he already has a Super Bowl ring.
