Cowboys Made A Big Trade Offer For A Star NFL Player

The safety posted an Instagram message Wednesday morning, expressing his frustration with the negotiation process.

"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.

According to multiple National Football League insiders, though, the Cowboys tried multiple times to acquire Thomas - who went to high school outside Beaumont and played college ball at Texas - during his holdout in Seattle.

The Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of the fines Thomas accrued during his holdout.

In addition to that, Rapoport also reported that the Dallas Cowboys, whose interest in Earl Thomas has never been a secret, have shown their willingness to throw a third-round pick in a prospective deal. As a result, Thomas will play out the final year of his contract with the Seahawks. Earl Thomas' absence could prove to be one of the more detrimental losses for Seattle this offseason.

That has led to a stalemate that has had Seattle entertaining trade offers for Thomas since last spring. However, it's still not the second-rounder "and change" that the Seahawks want for the six-time Pro Bowler safety.

Seattle has no incentive to trade him as they are benefitting financially from him skipping out. Chancellor missed the first two games before reporting. A later report stated Thomas was in town exclusively to accompany his daughter to her first day of school.

Rookie Shaquem Griffin will start at weak-side linebacker for the Seahawks in their season-opener against the Broncos, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters Wednesday.

Thomas had been working out primarily in his native Texas, and specifically in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas.
