According to Twitter, Earl Thomas has signed with the Seahawks and should be expected to practice on Sunday, the second day of Seahawk training camp.  

Terms are for a five-year deal at $21.1 million with over half guaranteed ($12.32 million).

NFL.com reports "Thomas, who likely will start for the Seahawks, said he will be on the field for Sunday afternoon's practice, the third of camp."

The Russell Okung watch continues, but the chances have shifted in favor of a deal being completed by Sunday.  Only eight first-rounders remain unsigned.

Okung, still unsigned, is currently sandwiched between Eric Berry (Six years, $60 million, $34M guaranteed) and Joe Haden (Five years, $50 million, $26 million guaranteed) with the first Offensive Tackle taken, Trent Williams, signing a six-year, $60 million contract with $36.75M guaranteed, just above Berry.
