Seattle Seahawks: Earl Thomas is coming back to the team

Dallas offered up next year's second-round draft pick but were again rebuffed by the Seahawks who feel that still isn't enough of a return for Thomas.

In July, it was originally reported that Thomas, 29, planned on holding out in hopes of landing a new contract from Seattle.

A Native of Texas, Thomas has been linked to the Cowboys for several months.

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has made a decision to end his holdout Wednesday, which signals his intent to play what will likely be his last season in Seattle.

"With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten", Thomas wrote after indicating he wouldn't let his teammates down this weekend.

Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks, but he still doesn't appear to be thrilled with his situation.

The caption seems to affirm that he's back: "I worked my whole life for this...."

Thomas has been one of Seattle's most consistent performers.

Thomas has not participated in any activities with the Seahawks since the end of the 2017 season in an attempt to get an extension on a four-year, $40 million contract that runs out after the 2018 season.

Thomas did not speak with reporters Wednesday. A later report stated Thomas was in town exclusively to accompany his daughter to her first day of school. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career", he wrote on Instagram today.

Perhaps after seeing what the Oakland Raiders got for Khalil Mack over the weekend the Seahawks think they can get more, but Mack plays a more coveted position. When Thomas inked that extension, he became the league's highest-paid safety in terms of average salary ($10 million per year).

Thomas was the 14th overall pick in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Seattle.

Thomas has held out of team activities going all the way back to OTAs. Chancellor - while not officially retired - is not expected to play again because of the injury.
