Earl Thomas joins Seattle, says 'disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten'
The All-Pro safety is showing up to Seahawks practice and won't be getting traded unless someone ups their offer
He is not happy about it though, and said as much in his caption, noting that "the disrespect is well noted and will not be forgotten."
I worked my whole life for this..... I’ve never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I’ve lived and don’t plan on starting this weekend. With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten. Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career.
Thomas has been, making it very clear that he wants a new contract from Seattle. Thomas is headed into the final year of his current deal.
There have Cowboys, and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Wednesday the Cowboys offered the Seahawks a second-round pick recently, but the deal fell through. The Cowboys but .to the
Dallas was an easy connection within Dallas, but the price tag just didn't work out. If Thomas hits free agency, Dallas is an obvious landing spot, and he could still end up there if the Seahawks struggle out of the gate and decide to move him before the trade deadline.
There's only one of us (IT'S ME), and it's still a bit of a long shot to actually happen, but predicting Seattle to have a big year feels a lot better with Thomas showing up to play and apparently willing to run things out on a one-year deal.
It's also worth noting, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, that the Seahawks have agreed to waive Thomas' fines for skipping offseason activities. That should help out in a big way when it comes to keeping Thomas financially satisfied with this situation.
He's gonna play angry this year, though, motivated to get a new deal in true free agency. Which might be exactly what the Seahawks want.
