Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has reportedly given the team an ultimatum. He said pay me or trade me, basically in his statement.
Thomas, who was being mentioned in trade talks with the Dallas Cowboys during the NFL Draft, wrote a 1,500-word letter to the Seahawks fans and front office. It was titled, “Here’s What’s Actually Going On.”
“I’m standing strong on this — because I’ve got to,” Thomas says. “I’m standing strong when it comes to getting what I deserve.”
“I’ve been one of the best defensive players in this league for the better part of a decade, and the numbers show that this team plays much better with me than without me.”
Last season when Thomas played the Cowboys, following the game, he went into their locker room that left a bad taste in Seahawks fans — and many fans around the league. He even talked to head coach Jason Garrett.
Thomas — when asked about the media afterwards — said that he would love to play for the Cowboys if he wasn’t playing in Seattle. In the letter, he did not mention the Cowboys in the letter.
The Seahawks defense has drastically changed this offseason. They were once known as the feared “Legion of Boom” defense.
Now, Michael Bennett is with the Philadelphia Eagles. Richard Sherman is with the San Francisco 49ers.
Kam Chancellor, their hard-hitting safety, announced his retirement from the NFL in July. The hard hits caused Chancellor to suffer a neck injury that ended his career.
“I’ll catch y’all this season, on one side of the field or the other.”
