Cowboys Made A Big Trade Offer For A Star NFL Player

Twitter reacts to Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ending his holdout

The Dallas Cowboys have increased their offer to the Seattle Seahawks within the past week to a second round pick.

The good news is Thomas isn't going to let the contract dispute stop him from playing, although it took a lot longer than anyone probably expected.

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.

Thomas doesn't likely want to sit out all season, and he nearly undoubtedly wouldn't, but the Seahawks have until the NFL's trade deadline to continue fining him and collecting the money from all of the games and practices he's skipping. 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".

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to clear any fines Thomas incurred while being away from the team during the preseason.

I worked my whole life for this.

Isaac is 5th hurricane of 2018 Atlantic season
In the Pacific, Hurricane Olivia now has winds of 80 mph, and is approximately 825 miles east-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Saturday, Florence had maximum sustained winds of 70 mp and was located about 790 miles southeast of Bermuda.

The Seahawks, though, said no. Seattle believes Thomas is worth more than a second-round pick. Thomas noted as much in his post, adding: "The disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten". Sherman was released by Seattle in the offseason and signed with San Francisco.

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.

Perhaps after seeing what the Oakland Raiders got for Khalil Mack over the weekend the Seahawks think they can get more, but Mack plays a more coveted position.

Shortly before Thomas announced his return, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Cowboys had made another push to trade for the All-Pro safety.

Thomas and Chancellor aren't the same player, however.
