It's re-run time for NFL storylines apparently. The Cowboys and All Pro safety Earl Thomas have been linked together offseason after offseason, but once Thomas signed with the Baltimore Ravens last Spring, the dream seemed dead for the Cowboys.
But due to some odd behaviors from Earl Thomas, that door may open once again. Earl Thomas was sent home from Ravens practice Saturday after an “altercation” with a teammate. NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo reported that everything is on the table for the Ravens and Thomas following the incident, “even release.”
Well if Thomas were to be released…
Don't even think about it says NFL Network's Jane Slater.
#Cowboys fans I know what you are thinking on this Earl Thomas stuff. From a team source: “haven’t even discussed it” but I’ll be honest they have been more aggressive here lately so it was definitely worth checking
The trusted Cowboys reporter says that Earl Thomas hasn't been discussed at The Star whatsoever, and after signing Clinton Dix this offseason they may feel their safety need is filled. Plus, we know how much hype there is around safety Xavier Woods internally, further complicating the safety spot.
Neither of these guys are better than Earl Thomas of course, but Thomas coming back to Texas to play for the Cowboys remains a pipe dream. And at this point, I don't know if he would be a welcomed addition to the team regardless.
