K.J. Wright Backs an Extension for Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas

Earl Thomas has support inside the locker room–the Seahawks’, not the Cowboys’, that is–for wanting a contract extension pronto, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune reports.

“Yeah,” Seattle Pro Bowl outside linebacker K.J. Wright said Wednesday, three days after Thomas went to the Cowboys’ locker room following Seattle’s win at Dallas and told Cowboys coach Jason Garrett to “come get me.”

“Give this man a seven-year deal so he can stay here. Then the last year he can go to Dallas. … He’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Maybe when it’s year 15 or 16 he can go over there to Dallas.”

Wright’s words assuredly reflect the true feelings of many veterans who have played with Thomas for the entirety of this five-year run of playoff appearances with two Super Bowls–a run that’s in danger of ending Sunday. It will unless Seattle (9-6) beats Arizona (7-8) at home and Carolina (11-4) wins at Atlanta (9-6) at the same time Sunday afternoon.

Those teammates don’t want Thomas’ seven-year run in Seattle to end with it.

Thomas, who turns 29 in May, doesn’t want to become the first piece of the Seahawks’ championship core dismantled.
