Ravens will sign free agents Earl Thomas, Mark Ingram

Ravens will sign free agents Earl Thomas, Mark Ingram

That he officially did Wednesday when the surprising word came that he was singing with the Ravens. The Ravens defense has remained firmly in the top-ten in terms of defensive efficiency the last few seasons, and there's no reason to believe that would change in 2019.

Thomas will fill the void left by the departure of Eric Weddle, who was released earlier this month and signed by the Los Angeles Rams.

He signed a four-year, $55 million deal with the franchise.

Over the last week, Baltimore Ravens fans have been in panic mode as they watched linebackers Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Za'Darius Smith and safety Eric Weddle walk out the door.

Late in the 2017 NFL Season, the Dallas Cowboys and safety Earl Thomas started a flirtation.

Shortly after the news broke, Thomas tweeted simply "Yeaaaaaaaa!" with emojis of a money bag and praying hands. He followed it up with a tweet saying, "Thank you Seattle for the love and memories that my family and I will never forget".

The 29-year-old Orange, Texas native spent the last nine seasons with the Seahawks.

He played just four games in 2018 before suffering a broken leg in a game against Arizona, his second broken leg.

He wanted to sign with the Dallas Cowboys. "(In recent years, Seattle drafted) Delano Hill, Tedric Thompson - guys that got their feet wet a year ago when Earl Thomas got hurt.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news Wednesday afternoon.

Thomas was on the Seahawks team that dominated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII, as a cornestone of a defensive unit nicknamed the "Legion of Boom".

Thomas was a first-team All-Pro pick three times.

Thomas will play for his second National Football League franchise with the Ravens.

While Ingram will bolster an already-potent backfield, Thomas could be a game-changer in the secondary. No team ran the ball more than Baltimore since Jackson took over for the since-departed Joe Flacco, and Ingram should flourish as a featured back after sharing the load with Alvin Kamara in New Orleans.
