Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas' four-year contract will pay him a base value of $40 million with $27.725 million guaranteed, according to a source. Thomas is the NFL's first safety to average $10 million per season and is the highest paid defensive back on a multi-year deal.
Huddle Up: Thomas is a key member of the Seattle secondary, but he may not be the highest-paid Seahawk defensive back for long; Richard Sherman is next up on the team's to-do list.
