Earl Thomas S Seattle Seahawks
When the Seahawks took Earl Thomas #14 overall in the 2010 draft out of Texas, they had big expectations for the former All-American from a school known for producing NFL talent defensive backs. His first year in the league he may have outdone their expectations becoming a Pro Bowl alternate while notching 76 tackles, a forced fumble, and 5 interceptions -- 1 more than the #5 pick in the same draft and Pro Bowler Eric Berry.
However, his birthday took place over the NFL lockout, and it looks like he took a good portion of his $21.1 million contract and gave it to charities -- and by charities I mean groupies hanging out below him looking for a quick buck.
