Report: Seattle Seahawks Plan On Re-Signing DB Earl Thomas

The number one fantasy of Cowboys fans everywhere this offseason has been trading for Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas. Ever since Thomas walked into the Dallas locker room following the Cowboys back-breaking Christmas Eve loss, Cowboys Nation has had their fingers crossed for a Thomas return to Texas.

Now, however, that hope looks even more far-fetched than it ever has.

Kyle Newport of Bleacher Report is reporting that the Seahawks want to keep Earl Thomas "long term," and have no plans of moving him at this time. This, of course, makes sense as Earl Thomas has been the best free safety in football for quite some time.

Jason Garrett, Earl Thomas

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas talk following Dallas' Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Though he will be due for a new contract very soon, Thomas has proven to be worth every dime he's made, and teams should have no problems in paying him. Thomas' deal expires after the 2018 season, but Newport is also reporting that Seattle plans on signing him to a new contract. Thomas has said, though, he won't return to the team until he has contract security.

Earl Thomas was named a Pro Bowler for the sixth time in his career in 2017, finishing the season with two interceptions, a forced fumble, and 88 tackles.

So, while abandoning all hope might be foolish, it looks even more foolish to expect Earl Thomas to be a Cowboy in 2018 at this point.

    Glad to hear it. We can’t afford him anyway. Nice p[lay by Earl get moving on a new contract Seattle. Get a hug from Garrett. Let that Splash all over the internet – smooth move.

    Imo, the Seahawks could be posturing , or just being deceptive in their plans. It’s that time of the season , when organization are throwing stuff on the wall, prior to the draft. Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    Good. I much prefer the door held open for Woods at FS, and if I have any FA $
    I spend it on a fast WR or a swing OL

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
