The Seattle Seahawks have replaced John Idzik, who left the team to be the new Jets GM. Idzik's replacement is former Browns exec Matt Thomas, who served as Cleveland's vice president of football administration since February of 2010. Prior to that, Thomas spent 12 years with the Dolphins.
Seahawks' General Manager John Schneider commented on the hire in a statement released by the team:
“Matt is a well-respected salary cap expert and was recommended by many top-ranking NFL executives. I am excited to welcome him to our football family.”
