Shark Bites

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Seahawks S Earl Thomas plans to report to the team Wednesday. Given the sparse depth at safety and Thomas' ability, we'd bet on him immediately regaining his starting job -- assuming he proves physically ready. Seattle's defense remains difficult to like, however, with Thomas returning 4 days before the season and so many other pieces gone through the offseason. We're not adjusting any Broncos passing-game pieces down on this news. For the season, of course, Thomas' presence should help the Seahawks' pass D. We'll see what the refurbished unit looks like on whole.

Recent Shark Bites

The Ravens on Sunday "terminated" the contract of S Earl Thomas for "personal conduct that has adversely affected" the team. Thomas got sent home this week after an in-practice fight with S Chuck Clark. There had also been recent reports of teammates being unhappy with Thomas effort, such as showing up late to meetings. Thomas remained a productive player in his 1st Baltimore season and isn't done physically at 31. Expect him to get another shot with a different team. We'll see about Baltimore's replacement plan.

Ravens S Earl Thomas is active for today's game against the Bengals. He turned up questionable after missing Friday's practice for personal reasons, but there's no change to his IDP outlook.

Ravens S Earl Thomas took the field last week for the 1st time since joining his new team -- and the 1st time since a broken leg ended his 2018 season last Sept. 30. "He's had a great week," HC John Harbaugh told ESPN's Jamison Hensley. "Great anticipation and great ability to cover ground. He shows up in the right spots on a regular basis. That's what great safeties do. He's done a great job." Thomas landed high in our 2019 IDP rankings.

The Ravens have reached agreement with S Earl Thomas on a 4-year, $55 million deal that includes $32 million in guarantees, according to multiple reports. Thomas' time in Seattle ended poorly, of course, but he developed into 1 of the league's top safeties before that. For IDP purposes, Thomas has primarily been nothing special. He steps into a role in which Eric Weddle finished outside the top 80 fantasy DBs last season, but Weddle cracked the top 17 each of the previous 2 campaigns. Thomas will likely sit in DB3 range when our 2019 IDP rankings come out. He'll turn 30 in May.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas left the field on a cart against the Cardinals on Sunday after suffering a left leg injury. We'll await further details.

Update: Thomas fractured his left leg and will miss the rest of the season.
