After a long drawn out saga lasting more than a year – a series of events that featured, most notably, a visit to an opponent's locker room, a contract holdout and a dirty bird in the desert – the Legion of Boom is officially over.
Earl Thomas said to come get him. A team obliged – just not the Cowboys.
The All-Pro safety agreed to terms on a four-year, $55 million deal with $32 million fully guaranteed at signing with the Baltimore Ravens, ending his career with the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal, per Schefter, includes $22 million in the first nine months.
The contract can't become official until the new league year starts at 1 p.m. Pacific Wednesday, when Thomas is officially an unrestricted free agent. But the deal, which is worth $13.75 million, will make him one of the highest-paid safeties in the NFL – what he hoped for all along.
