Both owners of Super Bowl rings, Kurt Warner and Ray Lewis are staying put in the belief they can add another NFL title to their resumes.

Warner, 37, agreed to terms Wednesday on a two-year, $23 million contract with the Cardinals, including a $15 million signing bonus and a $4 million salary for the first year: $19 million guaranteed.

Lewis sticks with the Ravens for three years and nearly $22 million. At 33, Lewis comes off one of his best seasons that saw Baltimore lose to Pittsburgh in the AFC title game in January.

Meantime, Terrell Owens' days in Dallas are done, according to ESPN.

ESPN cited anonymous sources Wednesday night in saying that the Cowboys have decided to cut the receiver, ridding them of a big locker-room distraction but also absorbing a big hit on their salary cap.

Denver signed free agent running back LaMont Jordan, Detroit signed unrestricted free-agent defensive tackle Grady Jackson to a three-year contract and New Orleans signed free-agent cornerback Jabari Greer to a four-year deal.
