Ravens will sign free agents Earl Thomas, Mark Ingram

  • The Ravens agreed to a deal with former Saints running back Mark Ingram according to Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter of ESPN

If signed, Ingram would give the Packers a strong and deep stable of running backs capable of handling the workload expected of Matt LaFleur's new offense.

The Ravens became interested in Thomas after releasing Eric Weddle last week.

A three-time All-Pro, Thomas was limited to only four games this past season with the Seattle Seahawks after incurring a leg fracture during a Week 4 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

"We don't like to see outstanding players we drafted in the first round leave the Ravens", former general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.

The Cowboys were long rumored to have interest in Thomas.

The Ravens are coming off a division title-winning season and are entering a new era after agreeing to trade long-time starter Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos earlier this off-sesason.

They did in Denver, which struggled with Case Keenum under center last season.

Thomas reportedly wanted to become the highest-paid safety in the National Football League based on average salary.

Rumors circulated Tuesday night that Thomas was talking with the Cleveland Browns.

Again, fans who have been starving for this move were left feeling empty as Thomas signed with the Baltimore Ravens after Dallas was apparently out due to his price tag.

The average salary Thomas will earn is less than two impending free agent safeties.

The 29-year-old Thomas was considered the top safety on the free agent market, a six-time Pro Bowler who has been named first-team All-Pro three times. The obvious risk with Thomas, however, is his injury history.
