The Ravens have found a replacement for Eric Weddle.
The team intends to sign former Seahawks safety Earl Thomas to a four-year, $55 million deal, according to sources of ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes $32 million fully guaranteed at signing and $22 million in the first nine months.
Selected by the Seahawks in the first-round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Thomas is the only safety in past decade to record 100 or more tackles, five or more interceptions and two or more forced fumbles in a single season.
The 29-year-old only played in four games in 2018 after suffering a season-ending knee injury similar to the one he suffered in 2016 that sidelined him 11 games into the season.
In 2017, the six-time Pro Bowler had 86 total tackles, 54 solo tackles, 32 assist and two interceptions.
Thomas will join Tony Jefferson, Anthony Levine and Chuck Clark on the depth chart.
