Dallas Cowboys: Earl Thomas trade still on the table

The Seattle Seahawks are only a number of days away from kicking off their 2018 National Football League season schedule, but there have been no sightings yet of safety Earl Thomas, who is still on a holdout. Those are all at team discretion, though, and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the Seahawks "did agree to wipe away nearly all of his fines". The Cowboys' current starting safeties are Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath, so Thomas would clearly be a major upgrade for that secondary.

"I worked my whole life for this...."

In July, it was originally reported that Thomas, 29, planned on holding out in hopes of landing a new contract from Seattle.




But in an Instagram post Wednesday, Thomas said he wouldn't let the Seahawks down by continuing to hold out into the regular season.

Thomas published an article on The Player's Tribune last month titled, "Here's What's Actually Going On", in which he issued the team an ultimatum: pay me, or trade me.

Ian Rapoport said "until something changes, Thomas is not expected to report and play for Seattle". 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. Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten". Time will tell, but for now, Thomas will remain in Seattle. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career".
