BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens finally made their move during the NFL’s free agent frenzy http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-greg-little-jersey , securing running back Mark Ingram and six-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas on Wednesday.After losing receiver John Brown and linebackers C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Za’darius Smith earlier in the week, Ravens first-year general manager Eric DeCosta bounced back to address two glaring needs.Ingram agreed to terms on a three-year contract and Thomas accepted a four-year deal. Both contracts are pending the passing of physicals.In addition, the Ravens formally announced the trade of quarterback Joe Flacco to Denver for a fourth-round draft pick.The 29-year-old Ingram scored 50 touchdowns during eight years with the New Orleans Saints. Arriving in Baltimore with 106 games of experience, including 64 starts, Ingram provides stability to a backfield that last year counted heavily on rookie Gus Edwards.Ingram has 204 receptions over the past five seasons and should fit well into a controlled offense directed by quarterback Lamar Jackson.A two-time 1 Will Grier Jersey ,000-yard rusher, Ingram’s 4.7 yards per carry average over the past five seasons tops all NFL running backs. His 39 rushing touchdowns over that span ranks second behind Todd Gurley (46).Thomas, 29, arrives after a nine-year run with Seattle. He is expected to replace free safety Eric Weddle, who played three seasons in Baltimore before being released last week.Despite having his 2018 season end with a broken left leg, Thomas finished with three interceptions. No one on the Ravens had more than two last year.While being carted off the field with a lower leg fracture in a Sept. 30 game against Arizona http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-christian-miller-jersey , Thomas extended his middle finger in the direction of the Seattle bench. He had skipped multiple practices earlier in the season after failing in his bid to get a new contract.After breaking the same leg in 2016, Thomas openly pondered retirement.On Wednesday, despite his rocky tenure with the Seahawks, Thomas wrote on Twitter : “Thank you Seattle for the love and memories that my family and I will never forget.”Thomas has 28 career interceptions, 11 forced fumbles and at least 88 tackles in four different seasons.The addition of Thomas fills out a solid defensive backfield that currently features Thomas and Tony Jefferson in the back end; Marlon Humphrey, Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr as outside cornerbacks; and Tavon Young in the slot.By signing Ingram and Thomas Jordan Scarlett Jersey , the Ravens softened the blow of losing three members of the NFL’s No. 1 defense to free agency. Mosley went to the New York Jets, Suggs latched on with Arizona after a 16-year run with Baltimore and Smith agreed to terms with Green Bay.Suggs had only seven sacks last year but is the Ravens’ career leader with 132½.“A Raven through and through. He’s tenacious, the best of what we want our defenders to be,” DeCosta said. “Terrell is one of our all-time great Ravens.”The loss of Mosley will likely hurt more, but the Ravens couldn’t compete with the five-year, $85 million offer from the Jets.“Four Pro Bowls in five years speaks for itself David Montgomery Jersey ,” coach John Harbaugh said of the middle linebacker. “C.J. is as reliable of a player as any defender we’ve had.” One of the differences between the Giants’ new starting quarterback and their old one is that Daniel Jones can make some plays with his feet.That’s just what Jones did on the first touchdown drive of his first NFL start. Jones scrambled for an 11-yard gain to convert one third down and evaded pressure long enough to find Saquon Barkley for another first down later in the drive.Jones then capped off the drive by keeping the ball on a read option and running seven yards for his first NFL rushing touchdown. The extra point made the score 12-10 Buccaneers with just under 10 minutes to play in the first half.The move to Jones has given the Giants offense a new dimension, but their defense remains a weak point. The Bucs have a pair of 75-yard drives that were capped off by Mike Evans touchdown catches. Matt Gay had one extra point blocked and missed the other to keep the Bucs from adding to their lead.
