Dallas Cowboys: Earl Thomas trade still on the table

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. on the sideline of their final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders

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 wrote, "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten".

"Within the past week, Dallas upped its offer to the Seahawks for Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to a second-round pick, per sources", Schefter tweeted Wednesday morning.

Seattle opens the season on Sunday at Denver.

It's clear the teams have had multiple discussions over a long period of time about how they can come together to make Thomas' apparent dream of playing for the Cowboys come true, but the Seahawks are in a tough position with Thomas being their best defensive player and only under contract for one more year. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

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

In a post for The Players' Tribune earlier this summer, Thomas wrote that he was shaken by the injuries suffered by Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor - two other members of Seattle's "Legion of Boom" secondary - in a Thursday night game last season. Seattle wasn't interested; it wants more.

Thomas was adamant in receiving a contract extension or to be traded by the Seahawks, and if neither happened, he wouldn't report to the team.

A second-round pick would replace the second-rounder Seattle doesn't have in 2019 as part of the deal to acquire left tackle Duane Brown from Houston last October.

Like Chancellor, Thomas is reporting without the team having done anything with his contract.

With Thomas out, Seattle has used Tedric Thompson as its primary free safety.
