Earl Thomas and Ravens agree on $55 million deal

Getty									Earl Thomas reaction after making a play

A league source confirmed an ESPN report that the former New Orleans Saints running back agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens.

Thomas, the former Pro Bowl safety for the Seattle Seahawks, reportedly inked a four-year, $55 million with $32 million fully guaranteed, according to reports.

Although Thomas did show in time for the Seahawks' opener, the safety's season was cut short after he broke his leg during a Week 4 win over the Cardinals.

The 29-year-old Thomas was considered the top safety on the free agent market, a six-time Pro Bowler who has been named first-team All-Pro three times.

If I were a GM negotiating a deal with Thomas, given his injury history, I would have offered closer to $10 million per year between signing bonus and base salary on a two-year deal with big incentives that could get him to the coveted $14 million-per-year level. Shortly after being released, Weddle signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams. Kidding, a little joke to lighten the tension after the Cowboys lost out on what appears to be the only player everyone wanted, Earl Thomas.

Man United may face Champions League fixture reversal, say UEFA
Liverpool , Manchester United , Manchester City , Juventus , Ajax , FC Porto , Tottenham and Barcelona are the sides involved. Ajax were next with 16 per cent followed by arch-rivals Manchester United with 10 per cent.

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.

The Browns felt good about their chances of landing Thomas, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported Tuesday night. He returned before regular season started and posted three interceptions in the first four games before suffering a season-ending broken leg. He has spent his entire nine-year career with the Seattle Seahawks, one of the leaders of a defense that has perennially been among the NFL's best.

The Ravens have more moves to make on both sides of the ball, but agreeing to terms with Mark Ingram was a step in the right direction.

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