Last week, it sounded like things were close between the Seahawks and cornerback Richard Sherman on a new deal, which may not have been as close as it sounded.
Now, another member of their secondary has beaten him to the bank.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Seahawks have locked up star safety Earl Thomas to a long-term contract.
The deal is said to make him the highest paid safety in the game.
A deal with Sherman could happen as well, as the Seahawks begin paying off all that cheap young talent they accumulated.
