Safety Earl Thomas signs 5-year, $21 M deal

The Seahawks announced that the team had come to an agreement on a contract with 21-year-old rookie safety Earl Thomas.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network is reporting it's a five-year deal worth $21.1 million, with $12.32 guaranteed.

Last year's 14th overall pick, New Orleans cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, signed a five-year $19 million deal with $11 million in guarantees, so Thomas got a nice bump up from last year's slot.

"Thank u jesus the deal is finally done bout to go sign the paperwork now....owww let's do it," Thomas said via twitter.

Rookie offensive tackle Russell Okung remains the only draft pick unsigned and not in camp.
