Earl Thomas Situation (Leg Fracture)

Recommended Posts

 

Also, there have been re-newed rumors of the Cowboys possibly being interested again.  Seems like they have the cap space to sign Earl Thomas to $13 million per year if they wanted to.

Well I hope the Tedric Thompson hyping up is not hot air. Would hate to Dion Bailey 2.0. 

 

If something happens, hope it happens soon.

Agreed.  I really want Thomas on the roster, but if they are going to trade him then it needs to be asap.  Should have already happened.

This is interesting.  Looks like Thomas may not be traded unless something drastic happens between now and the start of the season.  If Thomas says, when will he play.... will he ever play for the Seahawks again?  How close are him and the team at reaching a long term deal?

This situation is really weird because of how Thomas has acted over the past 8+ months.  We never saw Aaron Donald or Khalil Mack openly campaign for teams to trade for them, like Earl Thomas did.  Nobody does that.  Kind of seems like Thomas was willing to burn bridges with the Seahawks and some fans, so it will be interesting to see him essentially forced to return.

So basically he would of been traded by now for the right offer i like that they aren't trading him for peanuts now let's see if he is willing to lose game checks.

You let us have him this instant. Hand him over!

Reports are the Cowboys offered a second round pick and the Seahawks declined.  That seems like more than a fair offer for people here who were projecting he would get traded for less than that.

That's what I mean. Give him up already. We did what you asked.

I'm telling you. It's because we play week 3, and hypothetical future playoff games

does his trade value increase if the interested team is performing poorly and needs absolutely anything to reverse their fortunes?

what Jerry wants he gets, no matter the price...?

is that the strategy

Heh.  Based off what I saw yesterday, neither one of these teams will have that issue.

I'm not sure.  I'm thinking that, for what the Seahawks want for Thomas, a contender would more than likely be interested.  For example, the Cowboys were dreadful yesterday.... adding Earl Thomas wouldn't help that very much.  Their offense was horrendous and the more they lose the less likely they will trade for a guy like Thomas.

Now, if the Cowboys turn it around and start winning and they feel like Thomas is the missing piece because their safeties are bad, then I could maybe see a trade.  The thing is, Seattle is really pushing it wanting a first rounder or multiple picks.

Yeah, It ain't happening. There's a real chance that our 2nd rounder is a top 40 pick. And our first and top 10.
