Earl Thomas Reports To Seahawks, Will Play Out Final Year Of Contract

06 September, 2018, 04:24 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • 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

Thomas noted as much in his post, adding: "The disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten".

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas appears set to end his lengthy holdout in time for the start of the regular season, even without a new contract.

"I worked my whole life for this". And it was about to get really expensive.

With Thomas now reporting to camp, a potential trade could be dormant. Pacific Time kickoff in Denver.

Thomas, 29, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, has 25 interceptions, 66 passes defensed, 11 forced fumbles and 662 tackles in eight National Football League seasons. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career", he wrote on Instagram today.

They and general manager John Schneider have stood their ground of not wanting to re-up with Thomas at $13 million per year with $40 million guaranteed.

Thomas is one of the most instinctive safeties in the game, on par with Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs when he's healthy.

Serena: 'Every Human' Should Be 'Grateful' for Colin Kaepernick
Williams said that everyone should "be completely grateful and honored" at how both men have done so much for the "greater good". She missed her Australian Open title defense, not returning to the tour until March.

Given that the team didn't budge while Thomas held out also hints there's no real progress on a new deal.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Cowboys upped their offer for Thomas to a second-round pick as recently as last week.

Thing is, Thomas eventually had to come back.

And that galls him all the more. Thomas' contract year in 2018 would not count if he didn't return before week 10 of this season.

So now he's back, to prove again what he's worth.

The former Texas Longhorns star had made it clear that if he couldn't get a deal done with the Seahawks that he would like to join the Cowboys.

In a post for The Players' Tribune earlier this summer, Thomas wrote that he was shaken by the injuries suffered by Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor - two other members of Seattle's "Legion of Boom" secondary - in a Thursday night game last season.
