Ravens signed special teams standout Justin Bethel to a two-year deal. A three-time Pro Bowl player, Bethel has led his team in special teams tackles for six straight seasons. He has struggled on pass defense as a cornerback and didn't play a defensive snap last season. Bethel played for the Atlanta Falcons last season after spending six seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.

Ravens to sign S Earl Thomas, RB Mark Ingram

Six-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas intends to sign a four-year, $55 million contract with the Ravens, and former Saints running back Mark Ingram plans to sign a three-year deal with Baltimore, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ravens reach a four-year, $55 million deal with safety Earl Thomas, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This gives Baltimore its best ballhawk since soon-to-be Hall of Famer Ed Reed left after the 2012 Super Bowl season. Thomas, 30 has drawn comparisons to Reed throughout his career because of his great range. He has intercepted 28 passes and went to six Pro Bowls in nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He always covered lots of ground in a one deep safety defense, which would allow safety Tony Jefferson to play closer to the line of scrimmage.

Earl Thomas brings playmaking ability, range and toughness to one of the NFL's most physical secondaries. Smart move by the Ravens to add the veteran safety.

Ravens land their targeted running back, striking a three-year, $15 million deal with a proven veteran running back in Mark Ingram. This move will be characterized as a letdown by many after Baltimore didn't land Le'Veon Bell, but Ingram has been an efficient runner, a big-time producer in the red zone and a valuable leader. Since 2014, Ingram has the best yards per carry average (4.7) among backs with at least 500 carries and has scored the second-most red-zone touchdowns (34). Is Ingram a game-changer like Bell? No. But Ingram ends Baltimore's patchwork at running back over the past four years — from Justin Forsett to Terrance West to Alex Collins to Gus Edwards.

Ravens reach a four-year, $55 million deal with safety Earl Thomas, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This gives Baltimore its best ballhawk since soon-to-be Hall of Famer Ed Reed left after the 2012 Super Bowl season. The Ravens' first major signing in free agency will fill the void left by Eric Weddle, who was cut last week. Thomas, 30 has drawn comparisons to Reed throughout his career because of his great range. He has intercepted 28 passes and gone to six Pro Bowls in nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He always covered lots of ground in a one deep safety defense, which would allow safety Tony Jefferson to play closer to the line of scrimmage. The concern with Thomas is durability. His left leg has been broken twice (in 2016 and 2018), and he has missed 19 games over the past three seasons. But Thomas never missed a game from 2010 to 2015. After last year's top-ranked defense lost five key members in free agency, the arrival of Thomas is a step toward rebuilding it.

The Bills added more wide receivers for QB Josh Allen as both John Brown and Cole Beasley agreed to free agent contracts. With Brown, it's the deep ball speed. Run the top of the vertical route tree and create separation to break back downhill on curls, comebacks or out cuts. In the slot, Beasley can work underneath. Create more high-percentage throws for Allen inside the numbers there. Shallow crossers, option routes, etc.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens had little chance of re-signing John Brown, who is headed to the Bills after managing eight receptions for 114 yards and one touchdown in seven games with Lamar Jackson. Losing Brown in free agency and cutting Michael Crabtree last month means Baltimore is rebuilding its wide receiver group for the second straight season. Willie Snead is the only wide receiver on the Ravens roster who caught more 20 passes last season.
