The Dallas Cowboys have increased their offer for Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, upping their offer of a second round draft pick, but the Seahawks are still looking for more, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Thomas is continuing his hold out as he is still seeking a new contract as he enters the final year of his current deal with Seattle. The Seahawks have reportedly set an asking price of a second round pick, and even though Dallas appears to have offered, at the least, exactly what Seattle has asked for, it still hasn’t gotten the deal done.

According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Thomas intends to report to the Seahawks on Wednesday in a shocking development.

The news comes on the heels of the Cowboys bowing out of talks with Seattle, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Gathers spot on the Cowboys’ roster is up in the air, and the suspension won’t help his chances to make the final roster.

Gathers is heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Jason Witten

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten ended his brief, one-year retirement to return to the field for the Cowboys in 2019, and although he may not be as productive as he once was, he is still looking to show that he deserves snaps.

In fact, Witten is looking to make the coaches’ jobs that much more difficult in deciding the snap counts for each tight end on the team, especially Witten.

“There’s a lot of questions out there about me, too, and I’m anxious to go prove that I can play,” Witen said, according to DallasCowboys.com. “But I also know that may not include every play and every snap. Certainly that’s been talked about. [The team will] make those decisions.”

“Those coaches work long hours, and they’re smart. Obviously, I’ve got a lot of respect for Jason [Garrett] and the program that he’s built here and who he is as a man and as a coach. That will all work itself. I can’t worry about how that plays out.

“My job is kind of make it tough on them. We all benefit if that’s the case.”
