Mark Ingram II is not the only free agent signing by the Baltimore Ravens. The team has made a huge splash by signing free agent safety Earl Thomas. 

He signed a four-year, $55 million deal with the franchise. Thomas will receive $32 million in guaranteed money.

Thomas will play for his second NFL franchise with the Ravens. He began his career with the Seattle Seahawks.

He wanted to sign with the Dallas Cowboys. However, they refused to break the bank to sign the Texas native. He said previously if he didn’t play in Seattle, he would have wanted to play in Dallas.

Instead, the Ravens did that. And he replaces safety Eric Weddle, who the team recently released. Shortly after being released, Weddle signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams.

The 29-year-old Orange, Texas native spent the last nine seasons with the Seahawks. He was the 14th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

This past season, Thomas appeared in four games, including four starts. He had 22 tackles before suffering the season-ending injury against the Arizona Cardinals.

He also had three interceptions and five pass deflections.

In his career, he appeared in 125 games, including 125 starts. He has 684 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, and five quarterback hits. 

He had 28 interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns; 11 forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, and 67 pass deflections.
