Shortly after being released, Weddle signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Ravens have had trouble finding a true ball-hawking safety since Ed Reed and they get that with Thomas, as he has 28 career interceptions and had three past year (Pro Football Reference) before he sustained a broken leg in Week 4 vs. the Arizona Cardinals. In fact, sources indicate Seattle and Thomas never talked about a contract following the 2018 season.

Seattle will host the Ravens at CenturyLink Field next season, though, so Thomas will make a quick return to Seattle. As one of the best safeties in the league over the past nine seasons, Thomas didn't feel that his salary was big enough, so he threatened to sit out training camp unless Seattle agreed to redo his deal.

Ingram seemed like the more realistic option and they got the 29-year-old running back at a cheaper deal.

Thomas had also made it clear he would he happy to head to his home state of Texas and play for Dallas, infamously approaching Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and telling him to "come get me" following a game there on Christmas Eve in 2017.

Thomas was clearly thrilled about getting paid.

They've also reportedly urged others to refuse doing interviews with production house Pulse Films , who's making the series. We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine's disappearance.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news Wednesday afternoon.

Thomas was one of the original members of the Seahawks' vaunted "Legion of Boom" that carried the franchise to a Super Bowl XLVIII triumph. Ingram's days in New Orleans appeared to be numbered after the Saints signed free agent running back Latavius Murray to a four-year deal Tuesday (Mar. 12).

Furthermore, the price tag was just going to be too hefty for the Seahawks to commit to Thomas on the third contract of his pro career.

Thomas was a first-team All-Pro pick three times. They will be without Eric Weddle, Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Za'Darius Smith and Joe Flacco, among others, but they have added the likes of Earl Thomas and Mark Ingram.

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