Mark Ingram's Time With Saints Is Over As Team Will Sign Murray

Mark Ingram's Time With Saints Is Over As Team Will Sign Murray

Well, this isn't where anyone seemed to expect Earl Thomas to end up.

Former Seattle Seahawk and free agent safety Earl Thomas is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, according to reports Wednesday morning.

The original Legion of Boom is no more. The broad outline was known earlier - four years, $14.4 million - but now we have specifics.

Working on a one-year deal, the Arizona native could be looking for one last ride before heading off into the sunset. The NFL average for running backs over the last three years is one every 33.6 carries.

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.

"They are a grow-and-develop program", Huard said of the Seahawks.

Browns to acquire star receiver Beckham Jr. from NY
Make no mistake about this as the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns completed a stunning blockbuster trade Tuesday night. The Giants get the Browns first-round pick, a third rounder and safety Jabril Peppers in return for the talented wideout.

The deal comes with $32 million guaranteed.

But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year. Baltimore cut Weddle last week to save cap space and move on from a 34-year-old player whose athleticism had dwindled, but the decision generated concern over how the team could make up for the loss of Weddle's savviness. Adding Ingram would complete one of the biggest days of player acquisition in the recent history of the Packers.

"These Seahawks are a developmental program". Despite the underwhelming fantasy production past year, Ingram still graded eighth-best among all running backs on the ground, and 14th-best overall.

That's not to say Seattle won't look for bargains with veterans that play in the secondary, even ones that have also been All-Pros.

Thomas is one of the few free safeties in the National Football League - and perhaps the only one available in free agency - who can match Weddle's instincts in pass coverage. "Keep an eye on Eric Berry, the safety from the Chiefs that's going to get cut".
