|As the Seahawks conduct their annual mandatory minicamp [url=http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-alex-burmistrov-jersey]Alex Burmistrov Jersey[/url] , a key member of the defense remain absent, vowing to stay away until uncertainties regarding his contract (he has one season left) are resolved.
Quarterback Russell Wilson, who with two years left on his deal may be closing in on a contract showdown of his own with the team, addressed the situation on Tuesday while trying to avoid making any comments about his teammate’s business affairs.
鈥淓arl is our brother,” Wilson told reporters. “He鈥檚 one of the best players to ever step on the football field. I think you have to credit him for all the amazing things he has done for our organization, as a teammate, as a player [url=http://www.officialhockeyrangersshop.com/authentic-adidas-marc-staal-jersey]http://www.officialhockeyrangersshop.com/authentic-adidas-marc-staal-jersey[/url] , as a friend. I鈥檓 super close with Earl. Obviously we wish he was here, he鈥檚 one of the best players in the world and it鈥檚 always great if he鈥檚 on the field. That鈥檚 a better thing for us if he鈥檚 on the field just because he鈥檚 a great player. When it comes to people鈥檚 contracts those are business deals that each person is different, it鈥檚 a business, it鈥檚 a part of the situation. Unfortunately he鈥檚 not out here because you have a great friend and a great player and you want him out here for that.鈥?/p>
While Wilson didn’t want to talk about the Thomas contract, Wilson was willing to say that the player’s absence has meaning.
鈥淚 think it matters, obviously, he鈥檚 one of your best players on the team [url=http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-tyler-ennis-jersey]Tyler Ennis Jersey[/url] ,” Wilson said. “I know more than anything else, Earl knows how to prepare. There鈥檚 no better player in terms of safety [position], and really out of most of the defensive players I鈥檝e ever played that knows how to prepare better than him. I鈥檓 not concerned about his preparation, you know he鈥檒l translate that and be ready to play when it鈥檚 time. Hopefully we can get him out here. He makes our team a better football team. He鈥檚 a great player. We have great guys that can step up and the good thing about the young guys, like Tedric Thompson, those guys get to step in and learn a little bit more. Bradley [McDougald] is a great player, we got other guys that can step in [url=http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-brad-hunt-jersey]http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-brad-hunt-jersey[/url] , learn, and get those extra reps and play at a great level. But you鈥檙e talking about a Hall of Fame player so you鈥檇 love for him to be out here.鈥?/p>
So how will it all end?
鈥淚 don鈥檛 know,” Wilson said. “I can鈥檛 talk about people鈥檚 contracts. It has nothing to do with me and trying to figure that out. Ultimately he鈥檚 a great friend and a great teammate so I hope that he can get out here.鈥?/p>
But Thomas says he won’t be getting out there without a new contract, which may come only if he’s traded to a new team. At a time when the Seahawks have made major changes on defense, swapping out big contracts and cap numbers for younger players, the team may not be willing to make the kind of commitment necessary to make Thomas willing to sign a deal that will ensure his presence on the roster beyond 2018.
Colts tight end Eric Ebron was a draft bust in Detroit, but he might be ready to make his mark in Indianapolis.
That’s the word after the Colts wrapped up their offseason workouts [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-jakub-vrana-jersey]Jakub Vrana Jersey[/url] , and coach Frank Reich said he loved what he saw of Ebron.
鈥淗e鈥檚 really smart,鈥?Reich said of Ebron, via the Indianapolis Star. 鈥淚 knew that because we did our homework before he got here. We knew he was a smart player. But he鈥檚 like really a highly intelligent football player. And that鈥檚 really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him. That helps. And he鈥檚 an explosive athlete.鈥?/p>
The Lions used the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft on Ebron and he was a huge disappointment — especially considering that the 11th pick was Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan, the 12th pick was Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham and the 13th pick was Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald. But there’s talent there, and Reich is hoping to get something out of that talent that Jim Caldwell never could.
