Seattle Seahawks turn down second-round pick offer from Dallas Cowboys

Justin GreeneSep 07, 2018

Safety Earl Thomas plans to end his six-week holdout and rejoin the Seahawks, according to an Instagram post he shared on Wednesday. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

The Seattle Seahawks finally have good news on a key defensive player ahead of the regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos. Rapoport added that the Cowboys "tried like crazy" to acquire Thomas but were out.

The news of Thomas' plans to show up to the VMAC today comes on the heels of another report from Adam Schefter of ESPN that the Seahawks were offered a second-round pick by Dallas "within the past week" for Thomas but turned it down.

He addressed his absence from the team in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

With Thomas now reporting to camp, a potential trade could be dormant.

"With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten", Thomas wrote after indicating he wouldn't let his teammates down this weekend.

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. Seattle has reportedly fielded offers.

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks, but he still doesn't appear to be thrilled with his situation.

That has led to a stalemate that has had Seattle entertaining trade offers for Thomas since last spring.
