Seahawks have their new VP of Football Administration

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Per Brady Henderson:

    The #Seahawks have hired Matt Thomas as VP of football administration, replacing John Idzik.


    All I've been able to find is that he's worked with the browns in a similar role for the last three seasons.

  • Some more info on the guy.

    Thomas joins the club after spending the past 12 seasons with the Dolphins (1998-09), including 2009 as Vice President – General Counsel and Football Administration. During his tenure with the team he held numerous football administrative functions, which included assisting with the management of the salary cap, player contract negotiations, football budgeting and acting as a liaison with the NFL Management Council on salary cap compliance and other labor and legal matters. Thomas is a graduate of the University of Denver, University of South Dakota School of Law and the New York University School of Law.


    That was back in 2010.

  • Oh snap! This dude went to NYU Law? Dude must seriously be a beast. Not very often that NYC colleges and members of the Seahawks go hand in hand. Pretty cool. May he negotiate the shiz out of those contracts!

  • Damn, what happened to the Mike Reinfeldt theory? We haggled over that possibility, which was probably a non-possibility to begin with.
    Doesn't John Schneider know he's supposed to be monitoring our posts and taking our advice?
    Damn he's making this armchair GM stuff difficult.
