Ravens, Lions, Packers in the mix to sign Mark Ingram

Thomas was arguably the last elite-level free agent left on the market after a frantic Tuesday night which saw Le'Veon Bell agree to sign with the New York Jets and Odell Beckham Jr being traded to Cleveland.

The Baltimore Ravens made their first major foray into this year's free-agent market, agreeing to terms with safety Earl Thomas and running back Mark Ingram, according to National Football League insider Adam Schefter. Ingram would be a clear upgrade over the Eagles' current collection of running backs, which as of yet only includes Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, Josh Adams and Boston Scott.

He has made three All-Pro teams and was part of the Seahawks team that won Super Bowl XLVIII. 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.

This could work to benefit both the Saints and the 26-year-old Bridgewater, as there's no telling how much longer the 40-year-old Brees will continue to play.

CJ Mosley Expected To Sign With Jets
The Jets now have a defensive core with Mosley, defensive lineman Leonard Williams and safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. While teams can negotiate contracts with free agents, no deals can become official until Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Murray signed with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017 and over the past two seasons, led the club in rushing with 1,420 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Ingram rushed for 645 yards and six touchdowns on 138 carries and caught 21 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown for the Saints in 2018.

The Ravens are in an offseason of change, and after losing a host of core players, Baltimore restocked Wednesday, reportedly striking deals with free agent safety Earl Thomas and free agent running back Mark Ingram.
