Report: ‘Seahawks will listen to trade offers for Earl Thomas’

Earl Thomas

The breaking up of the once legendary Seattle Seahawks defense may not be limited to trading Michael Bennett and saying goodbye to Richard Sherman. According to a report, safety Earl Thomas could also be leaving the Pacific Northwest.

This contradicts a report from Tuesday, which said that Thomas was likely staying in Seattle.

Of course, Thomas could end up not getting traded. He’s a six-time Pro Bowler, has been named First-team All-Pro three times, and Second-team All-Pro on two other occasions, including 2017. So, it’s understandable that Seattle would be looking for a healthy return.

By the same token, while Thomas has a reasonable $10.4 million cap hit for 2018, he’s only under contract for another season. As such, teams may be less likely to offer what the Seahawks want.
