Safety Earl Thomas remains a member of the Seattle Seahawks despite his wishes to be elsewhere. Thomas is handling this situation like a professional should, going out, honoring his contract and playing football. And, like he usually does, he's quietly having one of the best seasons of any safety in the league. 

The Cowboys were ​rumored to be going after Thomas, but another team has now emerged as a suitor for the safety's services -- the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs.

There is a need in KC at safety with Eric Berry missing so much time, but even once he returns, it would create arguably the most talented safety combination in the NFL. The back end of that defense would cause problems for almost any offense they went up against.

While there are no specifics on how serious of a possibility this is, it's interesting to think about what could be in Kansas City, pairing a defense like that with an offense like the one Patrick Mahomes has been running.
