The Ravens are in an offseason of change, and after losing a host of core players, Baltimore restocked Wednesday, reportedly striking deals with free agent safety Earl Thomas and free agent running back Mark Ingram.

According to Adam Schefter, Thomas will go to Baltimore on a four-year, $55 million dollar deal and will be the 4th highest paid safety in the NFL (Spotrac).

The Ravens have had trouble finding a true ball-hawking safety since Ed Reed and they get that with Thomas, as he has 28 career interceptions and had three previous year (Pro Football Reference) before he sustained a broken leg in Week 4 vs. the Arizona Cardinals. Thomas has been selected to six Pro Bowl teams and five All-Pro teams, three of which were first-team selections. Myers was with the Jets last season after playing the first three years of his career for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

There could be a few smaller free agent signings as the Ravens are known to do.

It was rumored that Thomas could sign with the Cowboys, but the Ravens are a great fit as well, and both he and Nina were excited about it.

He played just four games in 2018 before suffering a broken leg in a game against Arizona, his second broken leg.

The move Dallas Cowboys fans have been waiting for finally happened, the team re-signed fullback Jamize Olawale.

I thought Thomas might wind up with a one-year, prove-it deal similar to what his former Seattle teammate Sheldon Richardson got in Minnesota last season for an $8 million salary.

The Browns felt good about their chances of landing Thomas, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported Tuesday night.

Thomas spent nine years in Seattle, where he was one of the anchors of the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" defense. Things actually got so bad between the two sides that Seattle tried to trade Thomas just before the start of the 2018 season.

Thomas' addition gives the Ravens one of the, if not the best secondary in the league. 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.
