Cowboys ‘only willing’ to trade third-round pick for Seahawks’ Earl Thomas

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

The Dallas Cowboys' never-ending pursuit of safety Earl Thomas reached a new chapter in the proverbal novel.

Within the past week, the Dallas Cowboys upped their offer to the Seattle Seahawks for Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to a second-round pick, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Seattle wasn't interested; it wants more", Schefter reports.

The offer was rebuffed, which fits with another one from last weekend that said multiple teams have inquired about a deal for Thomas only to find that the Seahawks' asking price is higher than they are willing to pay.

Of course, Thomas has also made it clear he is hoping for a contract extension, and stated in an Instagram post today: "The disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten". Reports say the team turned down a second-round pick from Dallas for Thomas.

Thomas wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of himself in the Seahawks' weight room, that: "I worked my whole life for this.... Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career". But the source stressed the team is comfortable enough with what's in place at the moment that it won't offer Seattle more than a second-round pick for the 29-year-old safety. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

With Thomas now reporting to camp, a potential trade could be dormant.

Even with Wednesday's news, all signs continue point the way they have for months: Thomas staying angry, playing out the final season of his contract, and becoming a free agent to sign elsewhere in March.

Precedent from safety Kam Chancellor's holdout into the 2015 regular season suggested the Seahawks are going to collect from Thomas this time, too.
