The Seattle Seahawks have hired former Cleveland and Miami executive Matt Thomas as their new vice president of football administration.

The Seahawks announced Thomas' hiring Friday. He replaces John Idzik who left the organization to become the new general manager of the New York Jets.

Thomas spent the last three seasons with the Browns in the same capacity as his position in Seattle. He began his career in the NFL in 1998 with the Dolphins and spent 12 seasons with Miami. Seattle general manager John Schneider says Thomas came recommended by a number of top NFL executives.
