Thomas is one of the most talented players in the NFL.
S Earl Thomas inked a four-year, $40 Million contract extension ($27.725 Million guaranteed) with the Seattle Seahawks, per Spotrac.
Thomas, a member of the “Legion of Boom” and a Super Bowl champion, is an integral cornerstone in the ferocious Seattle defense. Thomas yielded five interceptions and 60 tackles in the 2013 regular season.
The 24-year old is not as outspoken as counterpart CB Richard Sherman, but is equally if not more essential to the franchise.
On a schematic basis, the Seahawks roll S Kam Chancellor to the line of scrimmage frequently. Thomas is often isolated over the top of the defense, and he locks it down like no other.
Thomas, currently the league’s highest-paid safety, has earned every penny of the prodigious contract. Thomas has wrecked havoc throughout his four-year NFL career, and will continue to do so.
