Thomas has been holding out for a new contract the entire offseason and it doesn’t look like much is going to change on that front. Tuesday night on NFL Network the one and only Ian Rapoport provided some clarity on Thomas, after an update on Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell situation, and put a bit of a price tag on things.
Ian notes something that we’ve heard before, but hearing it again and hearing it so close to kickoff in Week 1 helps reaffirm it. The Cowboys are willing to give up a third-round pick, but the Seahawks want “a second and change.”
Who knows what this “change” is at this point. I’m sure collectively we’ve all got plenty of quarters and dimes to throw at the cause. For now we know that the Cowboys and Seahawks each have a price, plus that the Seahawks and Thomas really haven’t been negotiating much as far as a contract over the course of his holdout.
Will one team blink before the other? That’s been the question all along.
