Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is threatening to holdout if he doesn’t get a contract extension this offseason.
“I want to finish my career [in Seattle],” Thomas told ESPN. “I definitely don’t see myself going out there not signed [to an extension]. 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.”
Thomas has one year remaining on a previous four-year, $40 million extension signed after the 2013 season, which made him the highest-paid safety in the NFL. The six-time Pro Bowler is set to make $8.5 million next season.
Thomas told ESPN that he hasn’t heard any information regarding a potential extension with the Seahawks.
The Texas native made headlines in December after going into the Dallas Cowboys’ home locker room and telling head coach Jason Garett to “come get me” if Seattle made him available this offseason.
