Mike McCarthy reacts to speculation that Earl Thomas is heading to Dallas

But due to some odd behaviors from Earl Thomas, that door may open once again.

"It's really sad how things have played out for a man who is like a brother to me", Sherman tweeted Sunday. That could come in the form of leaning on rookie linebacker Patrick Queen and possibly moving Jimmy Smith or another player back to safety, like the Ravens did with veteran (and current free agent) Brandon Carr a season ago (Carr played 102 snaps at free safety after the Peters trade). We look at every situation.

Should Thomas be released, Schefter says the Cowboys are the leading contender to sign him. Thomas has $10 million dollars guaranteed this year but the Ravens can avoid paying him that if they cite "conduct detrimental to the team " as the reason for his release.

Earl Thomas' time in Baltimore will come to an end. He spent one season with the Ravens, who opted to release the standout safety despite investing $22 million in just over one year together.

Thomas struggled for spells last season in Baltimore, looking slow to start the year, and was part of several busted coverages in the secondary. Not long after, the Dallas Cowboys emerged as front-runners to land the seven-time Pro Bowler. "We talk about everything", McCarthy said. The pair had to be split by coaches and players and Thomas was sent home, with his future in Baltimore in question.

During practice on Friday, Earl Thomas got into a nasty altercation with teammate Chuck Clark.

That last bit of McCarthy's quote also paints a negative picture for a Thomas signing in Dallas, considering his issues within the Baltimore locker room.

The Cowboys had 7 interceptions on defense last season, tied for the fewest in the National Football League and also tied for the fewest in franchise history. If Thomas' former position coach in Seattle, Kris Richard, had remained with the Cowboys and Dallas employed a Seahawks-like defensive scheme, then maybe it would be an easier sell to Jones.

Neither of these guys are better than Earl Thomas of course, but Thomas coming back to Texas to play for the Cowboys remains a pipe dream.

There's a lot to consider.
