Thomas, Ingram makes a ton of sense for Ravens

Thomas, Ingram makes a ton of sense for Ravens

"Former Seahawks' S Earl Thomas intends to sign a four-year, $55 million deal that includes $32 million fully guaranteed at signing with the Baltimore Ravens, league source tells ESPN".

Yes, Nick Foles got a four-year deal in Jacksonville with a $50 million guarantee, and he is three months older than Thomas.

Thomas was limited to four games last season after suffering a broken leg.

On Wednesday, despite his rocky tenure with the Seahawks, Thomas wrote on Twitter: "Thank you Seattle for the love and memories that my family and I will never forget".

Additionally, some brought up how his decision to sit out may have actually benefited him, while others brought up that Thomas will be back in Seattle soon, as the Ravens are set to play a regular season game at CenturyLink Field next season. Stephen Jones said Dallas wouldn't pay big money to outside free agents and the organization stuck to their word.

Sharing the workload with fellow running back Alvin Kamara the last two seasons, Ingram finished 2018 with 138 carries for 645 yards, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and six touchdowns. "(In recent years, Seattle drafted) Delano Hill, Tedric Thompson - guys that got their feet wet a year ago when Earl Thomas got hurt.

The Browns felt good about their chances of landing Thomas, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported Tuesday night. Thomas knows what it takes to win a Super Bowl and was a huge contributor on one of the best defensive rosters in recent history with the Legion of Boom.

Thomas was a first-team All-Pro pick three times. Reports indicated New Orleans turned to Murray to fill Ingram's spot when the Saints and Ingram couldn't reach an agreement on a contract extension.

While being carted off the field with a lower leg fracture in a September 30 game against Arizona, Thomas extended his middle finger in the direction of the Seattle bench.

Gregg Rosenthal of also noticed the similarities, saying that Thomas to Baltimore "just feels right".
