Seattle Seahawks turn down second-round pick offer from Dallas Cowboys

Seattle Seahawks turn down second-round pick offer from Dallas Cowboys

Safety Earl Thomas would be the likely subject of any such talks between the two teams and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cowboys upped their offer for the disgruntled defensive back within the last week. Those are all at team discretion, though, and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the Seahawks "did agree to wipe away nearly all of his fines".

That still wasn't good enough for the Seahawks, who also made no attempts to get Thomas to re-join the team with a new contract extension.

The Cowboys' interest in Thomas remains strong.

Thomas wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of himself in the Seahawks' weight room, that: "I worked my whole life for this...." During the off-season would you have traded a second and third rounder for Thomas?

The Cowboys have no intention of offering more than a second-round draft pick for Earl Thomas and plan to go into Sunday's opener with their current roster, a source said.

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

The Seahawks reportedly called the Cowboys on draft night, asking for the 50th pick alone in exchange for Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowler.

Thomas is a three-time first-team All-Pro and was the anchor for the Seattle defence that appeared in consecutive Super Bowls, winning the first. Frazier will replace Xavier Woods in the starting lineup as Woods recovers from a hamstring injury. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career".
