The Broncos lead the all-time series against their former AFC West foe 34-21, but the last time they beat the Seahawks was in 2010, the year Earl Thomas was drafted by the Seahawks (with a selection that belonged to the Denver Broncos).
Thomas is one of the most instinctive safeties in the game, on par with Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs when he's healthy. Probably not. Today would you trade Uchenna Nwosu and Justin Jones for Thomas?
Thing is, Thomas eventually had to come back. But the source stressed the team is comfortable enough with what's in place at the moment that it won't offer Seattle more than a second-round pick for the 29-year-old safety. O'Neil took a look a how those deals panned out for defensive ends Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, running back Marshawn Lynch and safety Kam Chancellor in this story.
The Cowboys have no intention of offering more than a second-round draft pick for Earl Thomas and plan to go into Sunday's opener with their current roster, a source said. "Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career", he wrote on Instagram today. His return is a boost for Seattle's young defense - and it could also spur additional trade requests.
Serena Williams Will Not Celebrate Daughter’s Birthday
Williams is certainly the Queen of the court and was hailed as such in a new Beats by Dre ad featuring Nas and Nicki Minaj . This is a big milestone, but it turns out that Serena Williams is not celebrating baby Olympia's first birthday.
That Thomas wrote that the "disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten" means Thomas obviously is reporting rather unhappily.
Head coach Pete Carroll is scheduled to speak with the media Wednesday afternoon and may provide additional details then.
