Twitter reacts to Earl Thomas signing with Ravens

  • Free agent and former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is expected to sign a four-year $55 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens according to a report

Ingram plans to sign a three-year, $15 million deal with the Ravens, a source told Schefter and ESPN's Dianna Russini. A veteran free agent wide receiver is always in the mix. After returning from a four-game suspension to open the season, Ingram shared the running-back work with Alvin Kamara.

The Ravens signed Thomas to a four-year, $55 million contract that includes $32 million guaranteed.

Thomas can bring that knowledge over to Baltimore as well as his hard-hitting play style and elite coverage skills despite his season-ending leg injury in 2018.

The Baltimore Ravens are going to have a whole new look on defense next season after losing several key players including C.J. Mosley, Eric Weddle, Terrell Suggs, and Za'Darius Smith.


After finishing the 2018 season as the top ranked yards-per-game defense in the league (292.9) and second in points-per-game (17.9), Thomas seems like the flawless fit.

Thomas made $10 million a year on his previous contract with Seattle, a four-year, $40 million deal he signed in the spring of 2014. And Antonio Brown (who turns 31 in July) somehow managed to extricate himself from Pittsburgh and get $12 million added to his contract, plus $30 million in new guarantees from Oakland.

The Ravens' signing of Earl Thomas accomplished both. It began when Thomas set the process in motion late in the 2017 season, and it now seems like Thomas used the Cowboys as a pawn in his quest to get a big payday in free agency. "(In recent years, Seattle drafted) Delano Hill, Tedric Thompson - guys that got their feet wet a year ago when Earl Thomas got hurt. He has been well paid during his career. The losses they experienced this offseason are not easily replaceable, but the players on the current roster should not be taken lightly by opposing offenses next season.

Such is life in the National Football League for the vast majority of players as they approach and surpass 30, especially with an injury history.
