Seahawks Wanted First-Round Pick In Exchange For Thomas

180905_thomas_carroll Report: Cowboys Made A Big Trade Offer For A Star NFL Player

The Pro Bowl free safety reported to the team Wednesday morning, ending a contract holdout that spanned three months.

Thomas revealed the news on Instagram saying he doesn't plan on letting his team, city or fans down. "Seattle wasn't interested; it wants more", Schefter reports. It looks like his love for football ended up trumping it all and we'll be seeing Earl Thomas suit up for the Seahawks during week one of the NFL season. Thomas noted as much in his post, adding: "The disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten".

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.

"Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career", Thomas wrote.

Thomas was the 14th overall pick in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Seattle.

He has racked up fines of more than $1.5 million in terms of missed practice days and bonuses the team could recoup.

Yet, the Seahawks were still entertaining offers.

Seattle will have to make a corresponding roster move to account for Thomas, though they could also initially put him on an exempt list. These are two of the best punters in the league and with to be perfectly honest, most fans will be bored from the lack of returns there will be in this game, but if you are looking to be entertained, just keep an eye on the hang time or how long the ball stays in the air and compare it to the league average of 4.4 seconds.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, that's not going to change unless Thomas gets a new contract, which doesn't appear imminent.

NFL Network previously reported the Cowboys were offering a third-round pick for Thomas, noting no team has met Seattle's demands. A later report stated Thomas was in town exclusively to accompany his daughter to her first day of school.
