The Cowboys and Earl Thomas seem like a perfect match.
When Thomas was a part of the Seattle Seahawks, it was no secret that Thomas wanted to play in Dallas. There were rumors of potential trade packages that involved Thomas, but nothing came to fruition.
Now, an old tweet from Thomas during his last year in Seattle is resurfacing and going viral.
“When Seattle kicks me to the curb, please the Cowboys, come get me,” Thomas said. “That’s the only place I would rather be.”
However, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport believes the Cowboys have made a decision and they are out.
“One note on FA Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas: While the #Cowboys made some inquiries, they are not expected to be among the teams vying for Thomas’ services, sources say. So the Dallas/Thomas love affair ends here,” said Rapoport on Twitter.
Owner Jerry Jones did not take to that very well. When asked on 105.3 The Fan, Jones was very blunt with his answer.
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “The only one that knows that is me standing right here.”
Rapoport was quick to respond on social media. “Gotta love Jerry Jones… who said the same thing — “He has no idea” — when I reported midway through the season that Dak was going to get franchise tagged.”
Last year, Thomas recorded 49 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and two sacks in 15 games.
The start of the season is around the corner, and the Cowboys could make one of their biggest splashes of the offseason still.
