Dallas Cowboys: Earl Thomas trade still on the table

Dallas Cowboys: Earl Thomas trade still on the table

According to a source close to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher, the Seattle Seahawks told the Dallas Cowboys they wanted a first-round pick in exchange for Earl Thomas.

Thomas skipped the Seahawks' mandatory minicamp, OTAs and was absent when the team opened camp in July in hopes of reaching a new contract.

Thomas had been working out primarily in his native Texas, and specifically in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas.

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has made a decision to end his holdout Wednesday, which signals his intent to play what will likely be his last season in Seattle. Thomas wrote he's never let his "teammates, city or fans down as long as I have lived and don't plan to start this weekend".

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks, but he still doesn't appear to be thrilled with his situation. "Dallas still has interest in trading for him, but they're only willing to give up a third-round pick, not the second-rounder and change that Seattle wants. Seattle wasn't interested; it wants more", Schefter reports. Seattle's line will immediately be put to the test against future hall of fame player Von Miller and highly touted rookie Nick Chubb on the opposing sides of Denver's defensive line. Thomas noted as much in his post, adding: "The disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten".

Sunday's military parade was the first since Kim and Trump held their historic summit meeting in June in Singapore. This year's celebrations also mark the revival of North Korea's iconic mass games after a five-year hiatus.

Nope. Per Rapoport, Thomas was back in the area to be there for his young daughter, who was getting ready to start the new school year.

"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. A later report stated Thomas was in town exclusively to accompany his daughter to her first day of school. Sherman was released by Seattle in the offseason and signed with San Francisco.

Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys offered a second-round pick but Seattle said it wasn't enough.

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs and Eric Berry agreed to a six-year, $78 million contract; Berry's $13 million annual average makes him the highest-paid safety. Chancellor - while not officially retired - is not expected to play again because of the injury.
