Seahawks Wanted First-Round Pick In Exchange For Thomas

Seahawks' Earl Thomas Ends Holdout:

Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas plans to report to team headquarters, ending his extended holdout. Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten".

Wednesday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Dallas had actually upped the ante during the final week of the preseason, offering Seattle a second-round pick in exchange for Thomas. "Or trade me to a team that wants me to be part of their future", he wrote.

Twitter bans Alex Jones for 'behaviour' violations
Among other claims, Alex Jones (file photo) has called the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting a hoax. At one point, he said Darcy was "smiling like a possum that crawled out of the rear end of a dead cow.

For months, Thomas lived in a world where workout videos posted to his Instagram account - where he announced the end of his holdout - served as practice footage.

Schefter's report is the first evidence of Seattle being offered at least a second-rounder for Thomas, who will turn 30 next May 7. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

Miami Beach Police said via Twitter that the Labor Day holiday was "NOT a beach day", with rough surf and potential rip currents. Gordon has been marching up from the Florida keys, lashing south Florida with rain and tropical storm-force winds.

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.

The Seahawks will kick off the regular season this Sunday, September 9, with a road game against the Denver Broncos.

It was only in July this year that the Aussie up-and-comer entered the world's top 50, climbing to a career-high ranking of No.49. Millman was grateful for the invite.

The Seahawks, though, said no. Seattle believes Thomas is worth more than a second-round pick. The Cowboys would start the season with Jeff Heath, Kavon Frazier and new signee Tyree Robinson at the safety position while they await Xavier Woods' return from a hamstring injury.
