Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey and new free agent signing Earl Thomas settled an argument in a way that exhibits why we all love sports. Thomas wore No. 29 in Seattle, so naturally he wanted to keep it that way for his new franchise.
Humphrey reportedly gave up the purple and gold No. 29 to give to his new teammate, and Thomas returned the favor with a nice gesture of his own.
#Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey agreed to give up his #29 to Earl Thomas. Thomas says in return, he will donate to Humphrey's mother's track team. Pretty cool.— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) March 15, 2019
Thomas will donate to Humphrey's mother's track team. Pretty awesome.
"Me and Marlon worked it out, and he was kind enough to give me 29," Thomas remarked in a Ravens introductory press conference. "His mom has a track team, so I might throw a little bread their way."
Looks like things are going smoothly for the new Baltimore secondary. After the Ravens released veteran safety Eric Weddle, they brought in another high-profile star defensive back in Thomas just days later.
Baltimore fans can't wait to see what the three-time All-Pro can bring to the table on the already impressive Ravens defense.
