The case against an Earl Thomas trade As training camp and preseason progresses, I am favoring that no deal be made for Earl Thomas more and more due to his antics on social media and for visiting the Texans training camp earlier in the week. The guy is still under contract and is taking things too far in my opinion. That amount of disrespect to the organization that drafted him and really ultimately created him into the player he is today is unnecessary and I take that as a sign that he is ultimately out for only himself. A type of player that, I believe, this front office is trying to distance themselves from. We also need to take into consideration that the front office will be taking on his cap hit for this year and a likely 2-3 year extension soon after a trade is done to make him “happy.” All for a player who is nearing the end of his career and very well may have already played his best football, which will create a risk of not being able to afford to pay talent that has been homegrown and have a longer future. In my opinion, the outlook on our defense is trending upwards and say let's roll with what we got. As a fan of this team, I would be displeased with a trade that occurs where Dallas gives up anything more than a 5th round draft pick. With each day that passes, I’m glad a deal hasn’t been made for Earl Thomas.
