Cowboys ‘only willing’ to trade third-round pick for Seahawks’ Earl Thomas

06 September 2018

As ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed earlier in the day Wednesday, the Cowboys offered a second-round pick for Thomas and then opted to back out when it was declined.

Sources have confirmed that the Dallas Cowboys have upped their offer to the Seattle Seahawks for Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas from a third-round pick to a second-round pick and were still turned down.

Dallas was trying all offseason to try and land Thomas, but unfortunately for them, things didn't get done.

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks. On Wednesday, Thomas announced he's reporting to the Seahawks and will play out the final year of his contract with the team.

"I worked my whole life for this", Thomas posted.

Tropical Storm Gordon could strengthen into a weak hurricane
It is about 1,205 miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and about 1,300 miles east-northeast of the Lesser Antilles. A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama.

In Thomas' absence, the Seahawks have been preparing to start 2017 fourth-round pick Tedric Thompson at free safety.

The news may come much to the dismay of Cowboys fans, many of whom have yearned for Thomas since he approached head coach Jason Garrett following a December game in Arlington with a simple message: "Come get me".

Thomas doesn't likely want to sit out all season, and he nearly undoubtedly wouldn't, but the Seahawks have until the NFL's trade deadline to continue fining him and collecting the money from all of the games and practices he's skipping. He also would have to report by midseason to avoid his contract tolling, meaning if he did not play this season he would still be under contract to Seattle in 2019.

"Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career", Thomas wrote.
