The Seahawks have reportedly signed All-Pro safety Earl Thomas to a four-year extension with a base salary of $40 million,’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Monday afternoon.

The deal includes $27.725 million guaranteed, and would make Thomas, 24, the NFL’s first $10 million a year safety. The deal would end when he’s 29.

Thomas, a three-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler, has 345 tackles and 15 interceptions in four seasons since the Seahawks drafted him with the 14th pick of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Texas. His rookie contract was set to expire after the 2014 season.

The Seahawks may not be done locking up superstar members of their Legion of Boom secondary. The team is also nearing an extension with outspoken All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman and hope to have it signed by next week’s draft, according to’s Jason La Canfora.
