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.
With Thomas gone, Seattle is expected to go with a combination of Delano Hill and Tedric Thompson at the free safety position, although the draft or free agency could bring in new blood before the 2019 season begins.
Ingram seemed like the more realistic option and they got the 29-year-old running back at a cheaper deal.
If there's any risk for the Ravens here, it's that they just gave $32 million in guaranteed money to a player coming off a broken leg.
He wanted to sign with the Dallas Cowboys.
But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news Wednesday afternoon.
Thomas leaves Seattle going down as one of the three best safeties in team history along with Hall of Famer Kenny Easley and Chancellor, with whom he helped form the famed Legion of Boom defense from 2010 until Chancellor's career-ending injury against Arizona on November 9, 2017. It was an ill-timed injury for Thomas who became a free agent at the end of the season.
Thomas was a first-team All-Pro pick three times. In his second National Football League season, Kamara received his second Pro Bowl invitation as he ran for 883 yards and 14 touchdowns on 194 carries and caught 81 passes for 709 yards and four touchdowns.
Only time will tell when it comes to seeing how things play out for Thomas now that he's a member of the Ravens' defense, but as for the Rams, here are three reasons why the team should be thrilled over the safety being out of the division. 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.
