Safety Earl Thomas and running back Mark Ingram fit perfectly into the Ravens system, according to general manager Eric DeCosta.
“Well, we faced these guys in the past, and we scouted both guys coming out [of college]," he said. "Both guys have always been players that we’ve admired in Baltimore. Both guys really fit our culture, I think, with the style they play – aggressive, tough-minded. I think they’ll be fan favorites very quickly.
"I think the idea that we could bring in a player on offense and bring in a player on defense and be balanced initially was something that I thought would be nice. We got two outstanding players, two of the best players in the league over the last five years at their positions.”
