The Seahawks had the worse offensive line in the NFL this season and are desperately in need a veteran leader and they have identifield Thomas as their No.1 target going forward.

In 10 years in the NFL, Thomas has been selected to 10 Pro Bowls. He’s been named first team All-Pro 7 times. Despite all that greatness, he’s only played in one playoff game his entire career, and that was as a rookie back in 2007.

The Seahawks need to trade for Joe Thomas to improve a line that helped produce Russel Wilson’a worst season in the NFL and they need to protect their No.1 guy going forward. 

Get it done Seattle.
