Earl Thomas to sign with the Baltimore Ravens

Per Adam Schefter, the deal is woth $14.4 million over four years, which is a little rich for the Vikings' blood, especially after the team signed Anthony Barr.

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

Thomas had been connected to the Dallas Cowboys and his home state of Texas, but the Cowboys reportedly did not want to meet Thomas' contract demands.

During Thomas' best years in Seattle, the Seahawks had six consecutive winning seasons, three division titles, and two NFC championships along with their Super Bowl title. But with the league's two-day window for teams to negotiate deals with players whose contracts expire on March 13 now complete, Thomas' market doesn't seem as lucrative as initially thought. He played just four games in 2019 before suffering a broken leg in a game against Arizona, his second broken leg in three seasons. He'll get plenty of carries, and playing with Jackson should help as well.

On Tuesday night, it was reported the Browns were "feeling good" about their chances of signing Thomas to a deal. "They didn't do it a year ago when Earl wanted to be the highest-paid safety (in the NFL)". But those reports were quashed early Wednesday morning and news then broke of his signing with the Ravens.

After days of shedding players from their rosters, the Baltimore Ravens responded with their first big move - they are expected to sign former Seattle Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas. The obvious risk with Thomas, however, is his injury history.
