Cowboys may opt out on big-name free agency after losing Earl Thomas

The Baltimore Ravens altered the complexion of their offseason and added a three-time first-team All Pro to the defense when they agreed to sign former Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas on Wednesday.

Ingram's $5 million average salary is $1.4 million per year more than the Saints paid Murray, though Murray's contract is a four-year deal.

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

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.

The Ravens' signing of Earl Thomas accomplished both.

Additionally, some brought up how his decision to sit out may have actually benefited him, while others brought up that Thomas will be back in Seattle soon, as the Ravens are set to play a regular season game at CenturyLink Field next season. I think he's hungry after what happened in Seattle and how he left there.

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

That desire led to Thomas holding out all of training camp previous year, only to return before the start of the regular season so he would not miss any game checks of his $8.5 million base salary in 2018.

But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year. But those reports were quashed early Wednesday morning, and news then broke of his signing with the Ravens. Thomas knows what it takes to win a Super Bowl and was a huge contributor on one of the best defensive rosters in recent history with the Legion of Boom. 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. Thomas becomes the Ravens' splash after they failed to retain star inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, who signed with the Jets on Tuesday.

Mark Ingram is a powerful back that's far from a one-dimensional talent.

Thomas will play for his second National Football League franchise with the Ravens.
