Financial terms were not disclosed by the team for Melvin, who is expected to provide veteran leadership among the club’s core of young cornerbacks. Melvin, 32, is six years older than the next oldest cornerback on the team (Donte Jackson).

Melvin recorded 16 tackles in 10 games (two starts) last season.

He has 260 tackles, four interceptions and three forced fumbles in 74 career games (42 starts) with the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, then-Oakland Raiders, Detroit Lions and Panthers.
