Thomas, 24, was the team's first-round pick in 2010, and he's started all 16 games each season since being drafted.

Thomas was a key member of the team's Super Bowl winning season, coming in third place for NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors.
I for one hope Seattle spends lots of money on a few players and feels cap hell very soon.

They'll have to, i wouldnt say cap hell, but they'll have to lose some key guys fairly soon.

Maxwell and Wright are possible, and Lynch could be cut next year.

Every team has that problem but then again not every team has their QB making under 1 mil a year which is a huge freaking luxury.

KNIGHTON TO HONOR CURRENT DEAL
Terrance Knighton will make $2.5 million in 2014, the final year of a two-year, $4.5 million contract he signed with the Broncos. Had he hit the market coming off the productive year he had with the Broncos in 2013, Knighton might be a $10 million player. Through his agent, Tony Fleming, Knighton approached the Broncos about getting a new contract, but the team isn't ready to renegotiate.

Seahawks also zeroing in on a deal that would make Richard Sherman highest paid CB in the game. Hopeful it's done before the draft as well

Manziel has some very nice QB qualities. His issue is happy feet.
I think he will be a very good NFL QB but he needs to right situation(Dallas is not that).
He needs a strong coach who will call him on his ****.

I wish him well. What teams do you think would be a good fit for him. I hear NE might be interested in him.

He would fit well in Tampa, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Arizona, Cincinnati, New England, Seattle.

Now I do not believe most of those teams would draft him. But from a coaching and front office structure standpoint I think he would be able to be a good football player but also be mentored by a strong HC and have him mature.

Houston is another team but the problem with any Texas team is that you leave him home. He hasn't shown that being around his family keeps him grounded. Even his father has said he worries that one day his behavior will end with a bad phone call asking to bail him out of jail.

I think he could do well in Dallas, Jacksonville, Cleveland or Minny as well.
But those coaches are not strong enough from a power and league reputation standpoint they do not have the cache.

T.J. Ward wasnít close to being the Defensive Player of the Year, but itís arguable that he was the best strong safety in the NFL a year ago. Wardís deal from Denver last month was for $14 million guaranteed, about half of what Thomas got from Seattle.

I think he needs to go to a team that understands his talent given his size, NO, KC or SEA but unfortunately neither of those teams is changing QB's soon. Or an OC that has worked with mobile QB's, Mornhinweg e.g.

The Cleveland Browns have signed veteran quarterbacks Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen, general manager Ray Farmer announced Thursday.

If Cleveland passes on a QB the fans will riot.
But it would be in keeping with their idiocy of the past.

I think Farmer will be a good GM and I think they will take Bortles or Carr and let Young mentor him(which is a scary thought)

Vince Young a mentor?

Hoyer is the wild card, he played well until injured. I have no idea why the browns brought in Vince Young. The Browns have Hoyer and they need to draft a QB.

The Browns QB play has been so bad that you need every able body you can get.
More importantly, if I am the Browns coach there is no way in heaven, hell, earth or purgatory I entrust my job security to Brian Hoyer and a draft pick.

Vince Young is 31 and has been dealt a HUGE blow to his ego. I'd be surprised if he was still a jackass kid.

Michael Vick has a worst past and i bet there's a lot you can learn from that guy.
