A dream deferred I guess.

1. He didn't sign with the Niners= Win
2. Signs with AFC team= Win

I'm legit happy for the guy. Got paid. He was a hell of a player for us. But, the team was never going to pay him what he wanted at age 30 with his recent injury history.

It's hard to legit pay a player who deserves it like Thomas. Like you said, history of injuries negated any of that from happening. I wish him luck in B-More.

On paper that's arguably the deepest and most talented secondary in the league. But they've gotta address some of the holes in their front seven, particularly finding the replacement for Mosley. They were a totally different defense when he didn't play.

It's kind of funny that he ended up signing with Baltimore. Since he's always been compared to Ed Reed.

Very true.
I'm happy for him too. Also, thankful he didn't sign with the Miners, and Baltimore Ravens needed a positive this off season.

Not tagging Mosley was the biggest mistake this offseason.
Nobody would´ve thought he´ll get this big contract but it was clear that somebody will offer more than the Ravens.

Will be interesting to see what Baltimore´s doing to solve their defensive issues.
