Former Seahawk Earl Thomas to sign with Baltimore Ravens

The veteran safety played nine seasons in Seattle

The Baltimore Ravens finally made their move during the NFL’s free agent frenzy.

A person with knowledge of the situation said the Ravens have signed safety Earl Thomas and running back Mark Ingram.

Thomas played nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. Ingram had an eight-year run with New Orleans.

The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the NFL’s new year does not officially begin until 1 p.m. PDT on Wednesday.

Thomas posted the following on his Twitter account:

Thomas is expected to replace free safety Eric Weddle, who was released last week and signed with the Rams.

The 29-year-old Ingram scored 50 touchdowns with the Saints and upgrades a Baltimore backfield that last year ended up counting heavily on rookie Gus Edwards.

Baltimore lost linebackers C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Za’darius Smith to free agency, a blow to the NFL’s No. 1 defense in 2018.
