We’ll start our links today with Jayson Jenks’ story detailing how Earl Thomas is playing a little closer to the line this season than in the past.

As Jenks writes:

Thomas is Seattle’s firefighter, a safety who eliminates big plays because of his presence deep in Seattle’s secondary. But through the years he thought doing so also exposed a soft underbelly in the middle.

So this year, with a cornerback unit led by Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner (when healthy), Thomas decided to play closer to the line of scrimmage.
