Running back Mark Ingram is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens when NFL free agency opens at 3 p.m. CDT Wednesday, ESPN and the NFL Network reported.

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).

Thomas was limited to four games last season after suffering a broken leg.

Reaction on twitter was swift after the Thomas signing was announced. Shortly after being released, Weddle signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams.

Over the last week, Baltimore Ravens fans have been in panic mode as they watched linebackers Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Za'Darius Smith and safety Eric Weddle walk out the door.

The Cowboys were long rumored to have interest in Thomas. "(In recent years, Seattle drafted) Delano Hill, Tedric Thompson - guys that got their feet wet a year ago when Earl Thomas got hurt.

Rumors circulated Tuesday night that Thomas was talking with the Cleveland Browns.

During the 2018 season, the safety was headed into the final year of his contract with the Seahawks that was set to pay him $8.5 million in base salary.

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.

The Seahawks did more subtracting than adding the first few days of free agency, most notably losing their best defensive player, free safety Earl Thomas.

Thomas was a first-team All-Pro pick three times.

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.

Since entering the National Football League in 2010, Thomas has been an absolute ball-hawk and the ostensible quarterback of the Seahawks' defense.
