The Seahawks reportedly have designs on signing free safety Earl Thomas to a new contract in the offseason.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, signing Thomas for the long term is the Seahawks’ “top priority” in the coming offseason.

One of the core players on the NFL’s top defense in 2013 and a three-time Pro Bowler, the 24-year-old Thomas has intercepted 15 passes in four NFL seasons.

Thomas has one year left on his rookie contract. He is slated to make $4.625 million in 2014, per Rotoworld.com salary data.

    I think he is closer to being the best player at his position.

    Than Richard Sherman is at his.

    Just my opinion.

    Unfortunately there is tough choices coming. I’m glad the john and pete are running the show. Sign Thomas and hope to keep Sherman. Thomas makes our secondary what it is. Don’t do what the hawks did in 2006 when they signed Shaun Alexander and let Hutchinson go. So happy John Schneider is our guy.

    If Seattle front office can ink both Thomas and Sherman this offseason you got to give those guys props.

    He’s their best player on defense. There is no way he leaves Seattle.

    Good luck Seahawks fans. Giants have always been about winning championships with great defense. You’ll do us proud winning in our backyard.
