Seahawks' Earl Thomas Ends Holdout: "The Disrespect Has Been Well Noted"

Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas announced Sunday on Twitter his intentions to hold out from mini-camp and further team activities with the Seahawks until his contract situation is resolved

Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas plans to report to team headquarters, ending his extended holdout.

Wednesday's news of Thomas reporting to his current team might well lead to both sides considering it a stalemate. The Seahawks tried to find a trade partner for Thomas, who had previously stated he wouldn't report without a new contract in place, but were unable to come to terms on a deal. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career". As a result, Thomas will play out the final year of his contract with the Seahawks.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said during a TV broadcast Tuesday night that Dallas offered Seattle a third-round pick, but that the Seahawks wanted "a second-rounder and change".

Shortly before Thomas announced his return, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Cowboys had made another push to trade for the All-Pro safety. Schneider and Seattle have stood on the premise they have a future Hall-of-Fame talent under contract for this season, and they didn't have to do anything short of another team backing up a Brinks truck of enticements to move off that position. That likelihood, apparently, is enough to keep the Cowboys brass from ponying up whatever pot-sweeteners Seattle now wants.

The Cowboys' interest in Thomas remains strong.

"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.

But Seahawks coach Pete Carroll foreshadowed that maybe something was going on when he was asked Monday if there had been any additional contact with Thomas and he paused and said there was "nothing to report".
