In addition to that, Rapoport also reported that the Dallas Cowboys, whose interest in Earl Thomas has never been a secret, have shown their willingness to throw a third-round pick in a prospective deal.

Safety Earl Thomas announced Wednesday morning on Instagram his plan to report to the team, but indicated his displeasure over how his contract situation was handled.

In a post for The Players' Tribune earlier this summer, Thomas wrote that he was shaken by the injuries suffered by Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor - two other members of Seattle's "Legion of Boom" secondary - in a Thursday night game last season.

Thomas is planning report to the Seattle Seahawks facility. Because he missed the offseason and all of preseason, Thomas may not start in Sunday's season opener but he's certainly expected to play.Denver will host the Seahawks on September 9 at 2:25 p.m. MT on FOX.

The news may come much to the dismay of Cowboys fans, many of whom have yearned for Thomas since he approached head coach Jason Garrett following a December game in Arlington with a simple message: "Come get me".

In Thomas' absence, the Seahawks have been preparing to start 2017 fourth-round pick Tedric Thompson at free safety.

The Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of the fines Thomas accrued during his holdout. Seattle wasn't interested; it wants more.

With Thomas now reporting to camp, a potential trade could be dormant.

Projected starter Xavier Woods at free safety will miss the season opener and maybe longer with a pulled hamstring.
