Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ends holdout ahead of Week 1

Share

After a regular season game between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys in 2017, Earl Thomas made a point to run after Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to tell him - and the Cowboys in general - to come and get him over the course of the offseason. Rapoport added that the Cowboys "tried like crazy" to acquire Thomas but were out.

He posted the following on his Instagram page on Wednesday morning. On Wednesday, Thomas announced he's reporting to the Seahawks and will play out the final year of his contract with the team.

With just one day before the National Football League regular season opens up, Thomas remains a member of the Seattle Seahawks (though only by roster designation at this point) and the Cowboys could use a jolt in their secondary.

The Seahawks reportedly called the Cowboys on draft night, asking for the 50th pick alone in exchange for Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowler.

"They believe the closer Seattle gets to the trading deadline with a disgruntled star who won't be back next season, the more conciliatory the Seahawks will become in their demands". The Cowboys stood pat and drafted Coppell product and fellow Longhorn Connor Williams in the second round.

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks, but he still doesn't appear to be thrilled with his situation. Frazier will replace Xavier Woods in the starting lineup as Woods recovers from a hamstring injury. With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten.

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