According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are not expected to place the franchise tag on All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas. The team will make a final decision today.

The Ravens are in discussion with Thomas over a long term deal and could be using the franchise tag as a threat to get the deal done. Placing the franchise tag on Thomas will guarantee him $7.2 million this year, a figure that the Ravens can't afford given the small amount of cap space that they have available.

Thomas, 29, finished with a career-high 11 sacks this season and ranked third on the team with 106 tackles.
