Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ends holdout in time to face Broncos

According to National Football League insider Adam Schefter, the Cowboys upped their trade offer to the Seattle Seahawks by dangling a second-round pick in exchange for the six-time Pro Bowler.

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas plans to report to Seattle's facility Wednesday after holding out during the offseason, seeking a trade or new contract.

"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".

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks.

Thomas has not participated in any activities with the Seahawks since the end of the 2017 season in an attempt to get an extension on a four-year, $40 million contract that runs out after the 2018 season.

"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. With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

"The Cowboys remain a trade option for Earl Thomas", Pelissero tweeted Friday. That likelihood, apparently, is enough to keep the Cowboys brass from ponying up whatever pot-sweeteners Seattle now wants. Thompson missed the final preseason game with a shoulder stringer and rib injury suffered a week earlier, but coach Pete Carroll had said Monday that Thompson was in line to start the opener.

Now the Cowboys will head into the season without Thomas and will a hole at safety.
