Earl Thomas has earned his contract and set out to get the honour of being the highest-paid safety in the NFL.
Seattle have duly obliged by sowing up his contract until 2018 with a deal worth $27.7million guaranteed and possibly $40million over the four years.
Thomas has always been competitive and along with getting Richard Sherman tied down, the Seahawks have got their best played locked in for the foreseeable future.
Thomas said: "I compete in in everything that I do and i want to set the bar."
During the press conference, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll agreed that he will be worth it claiming that the performances he put in last year are ones he can replicate every day.
Thomas's speed is one of the key factors for his success, although he almost got a speeding ticket on his way to the press conference after being pulled over.
The Seahawks have got rid of quite a few players over the free agency period but are confident that they've kept the right men. Thomas was one of two first round picks in 2010 and one of Pete Carroll's first draft picks with the franchise.
