Earl Thomas used social media to nudge the Seattle Seahawks in contract negotiations, suggesting they either sign him to an extension or trade him.

The safety is entering the final year of a four-year, $40 million extension.

Thomas posted a picture of himself working out on Instagram with the captain: "Always been the underdog ain't nothing new. Extend .....if you don't want me let's make a trade happen I understand it's a bizz."

He has missed seven games due to injury the past two seasons after missing zero previously.
