The Seattle Seahawks have been blowing up their defense and are reportedly entertaining trade offers for All-Pro safety, Earl Thomas.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, it looks as if the Seahawks are expecting to receive a first and third-round pick and perhaps even more, for the 28-year-old safety.

That’s a pretty steep bounty the Seahawks are looking for. Thomas is an excellent defensive back, but he also has eight years of wear and tear on him. He also missed time due to injury in both 2016-17 for the first time in his career.
Since being drafted 14th overall in 2010, Thomas has recorded 662 combined tackles, 66 defended passes, 25 interceptions and three defensive touchdowns.
It will definitely be worth following to see if any teams in need offer anything near to what the Seahawks are asking.
