    Report: Seahawks wanted Cowboys’ second-rounder for Earl Thomas

    Weren’t the Seahawks supposed to be asking for at least first- and third-round picks for Earl Thomas? Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the Seahawks asked for the Cowboys’ second-round choice for Thomas on Friday.

    Dallas balked, using the pick to select offensive lineman Connor Williams.

    Rapoport adds that the Cowboys might have had Thomas for a third-round pick “and a lot more,” but Dallas declined that too. The Cowboys reportedly still have interest in the free safety after not coming out of the draft with one. Xavier Woods is penciled in as the starter at free safety with last year’s starter, Byron Jones, moving to cornerback.

    Seahawks General Manager John Schneider admitted Saturday he talked to several teams Friday about a trade for Thomas but said nothing was close to happening.

    Thomas threatened a holdout earlier this offseason in the absence of a new contract and opted to skip the start of the team’s offseason workouts. But Schneider recently said Thomas’ agent has promised Thomas won’t holdout.

    But theres the issue..can Linehan get him involved in the offense?
    Maybe, maybe not, but if he can’t, he’ll be the third OC who couldn’t.

    Richard Sherman: Earl Thomas deserves top safety pay

    Count Richard Sherman among those who aren't sure what the future holds for Earl Thomas and the Seattle Seahawks.

    Thomas' current contract with the Seahawks expires after the 2018 season, and Sherman believes his former Legion of Boom co-conspirator should get paid.

    "I think Earl Thomas deserves the money he's asking for," Sherman told NFL Network's Michael Robinson during Robinson's youth football camp in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday. "I think he deserves to be compensated as the top safety in the league. Whether Seattle does that or not is up to them."

    There's no doubt Thomas has been a huge part of what the Seahawks have accomplished under coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider in Seattle. But the Seahawks' numerous roster and coaching staff moves this offseason show they aren't afraid to part ways with the on-field architects of their past glories.

    Looking past Thomas' somewhat strange Christmas Eve locker room visit with Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, there has been plenty of speculation about the six-time Pro Bowler's future in Seattle. Although the Seahawks want to sign the 29-year-old to a contract extension, the numbers might not be palpable to the team's long-term plans.

    Sherman believes it's hard to understate how critical Thomas is to the Seahawks' defense.

    "Obviously, that man plays at a high level and the defense doesn't really work without his contribution," Sherman said. "I think after a while you show a certain level of respect to your players who've put in the time. And he's been a great example of dedication and perseverance, and just incredible excellence. So obviously he deserves to get paid, but whether they pay him or not is up to them."

    Whether the Seahawks feel the same way remains to be seen.

    Thomas is saying that he is holding out for a new contract.

    So what Sherman is saying is " we don't know how good he'll be in the future, but you should pay him for what he did in the past!" I don't think they understand business.

    Dallas won't pay him what he wants either.
