NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported earlier on Sunday that the Seahawks top priority is the give Thomas a contract extension.

Thomas is easily the best safety in football thanks the the hardcore style in which he plays his position. Teams are starting to model their own safety play after Thomas and are looking for players which his specifications. The Seahawks don’t have to look far to find a guy like Earl Thomas as they have the Jango Fett all the other NFL teams are trying to clone.
