AFC Notes: Browns, Chiefs, Colts




Veteran S Earl Thomas tells Rich Eisen that he had committed to signing with the Chiefs before the Ravens stepped and offered him a better deal.

“Free agency was very weird. Didn’t really know where I would end up,” Thomas said. “I was trying to see what my value was out there and I really thought I was going to go to Kansas City. I had committed there on a one-year deal worth like $12 million and like the next morning I woke up and my agent called me and told me I had a better offer with the Ravens, so I definitely took that offer real quick.

“I didn’t have any meetings with the Ravens and I actually had got off the phone with Andy Reid the night before I found out the news about the Ravens. The Chiefs were actually about to send me a private jet. My family was packing up, ready to go, getting ready to go to Kansas City and I woke up the next morning and my agents told me that Baltimore really wanted me. They offered me a bigger deal and I took that.”


  • According to Matt Miller of B/R, there is “considerable buzz” from opposing teams that the Indianapolis Colts could target a wide receiver at No. 34 overall.
  • Miller says that if Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown or South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel are available, they could be a fit for the Colts.
  • Boston College OL Chris Lindstrom will meet with the Colts in the coming days. (Darren Wolfson)
