Earl Thomas Set To Sign Four-Year Deal With The Baltimore Ravens

Despite a successful nine seasons in Seattle, Thomas declared that he wanted to leave the Seahawks in pursuit of liberty and happiness (and a boatload of guaranteed money).

Reaction on twitter was swift after the Thomas signing was announced. Myers was with the Jets last season after playing the first three years of his career for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Ravens defense has remained firmly in the top-ten in terms of defensive efficiency the last few seasons, and there's no reason to believe that would change in 2019.

For those who have been waiting for the Cowboys to adopt and adhere to a philosophy of building a team, this is the latest example of them believing in what they are doing.

We've long known Thomas' time in Seattle was over, but his new contract demonstrates another fascinating development in free agency:.

But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year.

The Browns felt good about their chances of landing Thomas, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported Tuesday night. He is expected to replace free safety Eric Weddle, who played three seasons in Baltimore before being released last week.

Thomas leaves Seattle going down as one of the three best safeties in team history along with Hall of Famer Kenny Easley and Chancellor, with whom he helped form the famed Legion of Boom defense from 2010 until Chancellor's career-ending injury against Arizona on November 9, 2017.

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.

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. 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.
