SEATTLE – Multiple reports Tuesday confirmed what Earl Thomas has already said: The Seattle Seahawks’ Pro Bowl free safety has no intention of being at the VMAC when the team starts training camp.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and NBC Sports Radio’s Newy Scruggs both cited sources saying Thomas would be a no-show.
“He is done with Seattle,” Scruggs wrote on Twitter. “Plans to sell his house in Seattle. He will ONLY report if he gets a new deal.”
Q13 News reached out to Thomas for comment, but didn’t immediately hear back. Players are set to report for training camp Wednesday, and practice will kick off Thursday at 10 a.m. with a live special on the official home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.
Thomas is entering the final year of a reported four-year, $40 million contract. He wants the Seahawks to sign him to an extension before he returns.
Last week, he posted on Instagram imploring the Seahawks to “extend me … or let’s make a trade happen.”
Last season in Dallas, he famously followed Cowboys coach Jason Garrett to the locker room and said “come get me.”
Scruggs also reported that Thomas approached Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis in Vegas and “told him to come get him.”
Michael Gehlken, the Raiders’ beat writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, reported that Thomas said something in that vein but that it was said in jest, adding that the Raider aren’t a great fit for Thomas.
