BREAKING: Earl Thomas Headed to Ravens, Cowboys Dream is Over

    The saga has finally come to an end as he heads to the AFC North to become the newest member of the . Thomas remained on the shelf as many other safeties quickly signed big time deals, including ' record-breaking contract with the .

    Adam Schefter from was the first to the big news on one of the biggest of the class.

    For the , the dream to get the free is officially over. Since last season, had been discussing the possibility of watching Thomas wear as the team reportedly tried to with the Seahawks for him.

    It's not a surprise to see the Cowboys out on Thomas at such a price tag, considering that had been the narrative all long. Earl Thomas got what he wanted from the Ravens: guaranteed money. With big in-house extensions to come, it's comprehensible to see the Cowboys pass on that sort of deal (even though it's frustrating to see him go elsewhere).

    Over the first three years, Thomas will average $14.33M per year.

    The Cowboys have been extremely quiet since the free agency negotiation period began last Monday, but there are still available free agents out there. I wouldn't be surprised to see them address the need for a safety over the following days. A cheaper, yet reliable option might be the way to go for the Cowboys.

    Here at , we'll continue to update you with the latest on the Dallas Cowboys.

    I figured ET would want too much guaranteed. That’s a risky move at his age coming off an injury. I would have loved to have him but hopefully we’ll find someone in the draft or FA to take Heath’s spot.

    Good! Finally he is out of the picture. Glad they did not break the bank for him. he has missed more games in the last 3 years than he has played. Sure a great safety but he is 30 and that kind of money for him is way to much. It amazes me how teams blow so much money on players others are willing to let walk. Why do you think their own team does not pay them that much? They know the player and know his value. And then fans get mad their team does not blow money in FA. A team is built through the draft not over priced aging free agents.

    As long as we have back olawazeee we’ll be fine

    There are almost no starting calber players left in free agency and the draft we have just 6 picks and no first rounder. We lost beasly and have one of the hardest schedules .they won’t be a playoff team next year at least it gets rid of Garrett by end of season

    Mike Thaxton

    Last i checked Tank is a starting caliber player ! There was no sure fire players anyway not throwing money away is better than appeasing disgruntled fans who just want a big splash signing every year to fall short again and again with to much money tide up in big splash players with one or 2 years left ! You would think by now the big splash players we have signed in the past who failed to help more than 1 year would have taught fans a lesson but….

    What dream. Dallas didn’t chase him. He chased us. Good luck ET. Cause you sure wasn’t gonna get paid like that in Dallas.

    Mike Thaxton

    And the Ravens will wish they had’nt signed him when they are saddled with that contract and cant add to their team while he is on the IR list

    Derek R.

    Thanks Mike

    Mike Thaxton

    I dont think he was their dream or they would had got him last year ! I was on board till i saw how much money he wanted i said no thanks and tho they tossed the idea around when he said what money he wanted last year that pretty much killed it because Carr taught them a hard lesson and they wasn’t going to repeat that mistake !
