Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is confident that he and the team can agree to another contract extension, but if not, he is contemplating holding out.
“I want to finish my career there,” Thomas told ESPN after Thursday’s Pro Bowl practice at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex. “I definitely don’t see myself going out there not signed. But I’m going to continue to work my butt off and enjoy this process at the Pro Bowl.
“As far as my future in Seattle, I think if they want me, you know, money talks. We’ll get something accomplished. Other than that, I’m just taking it one day at a time.”
He said he has not been told by his agent of any discussions with the Seahawks about an extension.
Thomas is entering the final year of a four-year, $40 million extension he signed after the 2013 season that made him the highest-paid safety in the NFL. The deal included $25.7 million guaranteed, and he is due to make $8.5 million in 2018.
Seahawks veteran Earl Thomas thought about retiring after suffering a fractured tibia last season.
He said last offseason that Eric Berry’s six-year, $78 million deal that included $40 million guaranteed was among the factors that helped him decide he wanted to continue playing after contemplating retirement once he broke his leg in December 2016. ESPN
