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.
Cowboys’ Travis Frederick Expected to Participate in Offseason Program
Dallas Cowboys veteran center Travic Frederick, who has missed significant time as he battles Guillain-Barre Syndrome, is closing in on a return to the field.
According to the Dallas Morning News’ David Moore, the All-Pro center is expected to participate in the team’s offseason program.
“Now it’s just about working in the weight room to try to continue to increase my strength and work with the team in the offseason as far as conditioning and getting myself ready come March and April,” Frederick said.
“Once you get to a certain point then you’re regaining your strength that you lost vs. the electrical connection that you lost,’’ Frederick said.
“I certainly hit that point in my upper body, which is actually a good thing when you hit that point where you slow down because that means the electrical connection is there and now it’s just building back any strength that you’ve lost. We’re at a point that’s very passable and very usable.
“As far as lower [body] goes, I’m at the point [where] I was missing a little bit of explosion but that’s the last part of it. The connection is there, now we’re just speeding up the connection. That’s the last part of the healing process.”
Cowboys’ Amari Cooper Says He Wants to Beat Tom Brady, Believes in Dak Prescott
Just in case you were wondering if Dallas Cowboys superstar wide receiver Amari Cooper would ever want to play with the new Super Champion New England Patriots and future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, he made it clear.
“No,” Cooper said, during an interview with NESN. “I don’t want to play with Tom Brady. I want to beat Tom Brady. I want to play with Dak Prescott. And I believe that we can get the job done.”
Cooper continued to express his confidence in Prescott as a franchise quarterback.
“Of course, you don’t see that?” Cooper said when asked if Prescott was a franchise signal caller.
“He’s a winner. I love Dak. He’s a born-leader from what I can see. He’s going to put it all on the line. In all the close games we had this year, he was the one making those big plays, leading us to victory. I just like everything about Dak.”
Cowboys’ Jerry Jones Confirms Jason Garrett Will Not Receive Contract Extension
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said that head coach Jason Garrett would not receive a contract extension prior to the 2019 season, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence E. Hill.
“We have been there before without a contract” Jones said, per the report.
“He trusts me. I do trust him or he wouldn’t be the head coach to begin with. Our business is made too much of when you look at extensions and non extensions.”
Garrett, who now enters lame duck status, said that he isn’t concerned with the business side of things.
“I don’t spend a lot of time on the business of football” Garrett said. “I spend time trying to build a team we all can be proud of.”
