Ravens Agree to Four-Year, $55 Million Deal With Safety Earl Thomas

Reports Ravens will sign free agents Earl Thomas Mark Ingram

The six-time Pro Bowler had to be grimacing early in the week as he watched a bunch of safeties lacking his pedigree land huge free-agent contracts.

"Over $30 million guaranteed, that's a deal that the Seahawks frankly were never going to do", Huard said. In 6 years, Rice amassed 6,180 rushing yards and 37 scores, as well as 3,034 receiving yards.

The common denominators among those three players: They are all 25 or 26 and relatively injury-free. Arriving in Baltimore with 106 games of experience, including 64 starts, Ingram provides stability to a backfield that a year ago counted heavily on rookie Gus Edwards. Berry also missed all but two games in 2018 but was on the field for the playoffs. Thomas would be a big-time help for the defense, as a leader and a play maker in the secondary.

A few hours after reports broke, the Ravens announced it with a celebratory tweet right at 1 p.m. Seattle time - the first time teams could officially sign unrestricted free-agent players to contracts.

Rosenthal also praised this move, though cautioned that now Baltimore management needs to address the wide receiver corps. But with so many top QBs in their 30s and even 40s, age is not as big a factor for them. But these are exceptions to the general rule in the NFL.

It was rumored that Thomas could sign with the Cowboys, but the Ravens are a great fit as well, and both he and Nina were excited about it. But he has to be relieved with what the Ravens are paying him.

That gives Thomas an average per-year salary of $13.75 million, which puts Thomas just behind the $14 million per year of Landon Collins (who signed this week with Washington) and Tyrann Mathieu (who signed with Kansas City). In his second National Football League season, Kamara received his second Pro Bowl invitation as he ran for 883 yards and 14 touchdowns on 194 carries and caught 81 passes for 709 yards and four touchdowns.

But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year. Ingram plans to sign a three-year, $15 million deal with the Ravens, a source told Schefter and ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Late in the 2017 NFL Season, the Dallas Cowboys and safety Earl Thomas started a flirtation. He has been well paid during his career.

The loss of Mosley will likely hurt more, but the Ravens couldn't compete with the five-year, $85 million offer from the Jets. "Especially with all the defensive talent that they lost". All it takes is one team out of 32 to make it work out. "But you can get what you need".
