Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ends holdout ahead of Week 1

In December, following a Seahawks win at Dallas, Thomas famously went to the Cowboys' locker room and told coach Jason Garrett to "when Seattle kicks me to the curb come get me".

"Within the past week, Dallas upped its offer to the Seahawks for Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to a second-round pick, per sources".

Thomas skipped the entire preseason while waiting for a contract extension - one that would likely pay him in the ballpark of $12 million per year based on the safety market in today's NFL. "Or trade me to a team that wants me to be part of their future", he wrote. The Seahawks have yet to make a corresponding roster move to activate Thomas to the 53-man roster, although they can use an exemption that will allow him to practice with the team while remaining on the Reserved/Did Not Report List. The Cowboys stood pat and drafted Coppell product and fellow Longhorn Connor Williams in the second round.

Seattle opens the season on Sunday at Denver.

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.

At this point the relationship between Thomas and the only National Football League team he's known, the Seahawks, Schneider and coach Pete Carroll who drafted him in the first round in 2010, seems irreparable.

Now the Cowboys will head into the season without Thomas and will a hole at safety.

The Cowboys' interest in Thomas remains strong. I've never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I've lived and don't plan on starting this weekend.

Thomas confirmed his return in an Instagram post, but it appears there is still tension with the Seahawks, as he wrote: "The disrespect has been well-noted and will not be forgotten".
