Seahawks' Earl Thomas: Could join 49ers
Thomas' former teammate, Richard Sherman, said Wednesday that the veteran safety has expressed interest in joining the 49ers this offseason, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Sherman also acknowledged that Thomas would likely sign with Dallas if the money is approximately equal, a sentiment that doesn't come as a surprise after there were prevalent rumors throughout 2018 suggesting the Cowboys were interested in acquiring the Texas native via trade. No deal ultimately materialized, however, after Thomas' season ended when he suffered a fractured tibia in Week 4. The 29-year-old was his usual dominant self prior to the injury, piling up 22 tackles (16 solo), five passes defensed and three interceptions in four games for the Seahawks. While Thomas may prefer to play closer to home, the 49ers have better cap flexibility than the Cowboys, albeit with a major disadvantage in terms of state income tax. Thomas should be healthy long before the start of training camp.
