Thomas to Seahawks: Extend me or release me

Seattle Seahawks cornerback and West Orange-Stark graduate Earl Thomas posted a message on Twitter aimed at his ballclub: Extend his contract or trade him to another team.

Thomas posted a picture of him working out with a message underneath reading: “Always been the underdog ain’t nothing new . Extend …..if you don’t want me let’s make a trade happen I understand it’s a bizz”

Thomas, 29, is entering the last year of a four-year contract worth more than $25.7 million guaranteed, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It’s been widely rumored Thomas could be traded to another team, namely the Dallas Cowboys, after his “Legion of Boom” teammates Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett were traded to the Philadelphia Eagles and Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor retired. He also held out of the Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp last month.

Seattle’s training camp begin July 26.
