Earl Thomas' first impression of Lamar Jackson: 'A star in the making'

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Earl Thomas understands how dangerous a mobile quarterback can be in the NFL.

For seven years, the Pro Bowl safety watched Russell Wilson elude defenders in Seattle and throw on the run when it looked like the play was going nowhere. He saw Wilson complement a defensive-minded team and lead the Seahawks to a Super Bowl title in his second season.

Now, Thomas is in Baltimore where he has gotten his first up-close look at Lamar Jackson, who made a splash in the NFL by becoming the only rookie quarterback last year to lead his team to the playoffs.
