Having lost a salary cap guy to the Jets, the Seahawks found another one Friday, naming former Browns executive Matt Thomas as their new vice president of football administration.
Thomas spent the previous three seasons with the Browns, after 12 years with the Dolphins.
“Matt is a well-respected salary cap expert and was recommended by many top-ranking NFL executives,” general manager John Schneider said in a statement released by the team. “I am excited to welcome him to our football family.”
Thomas replaces John Idzik, who was named Jets general manager.
