This public dance between Thomas, the Cowboys and Seattle began on Christmas Eve, when Thomas walked into the Dallas locker room after the Seahawks' win at AT&T Stadium to tell head coach Jason Garrett to come and get him. Yes, it's the best news Seattle has received in weeks: The team's most talented player can possibly be on the field for the regular season opener Sunday at Denver. Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten". Cowboys officials said during training camp that they hadn't really had any talks with the Seahawks since the draft.

Thomas is now on the Seahawks' Reserve/Did Not Report list, meaning the team will need to make a roster move to add him to the 53-man squad before Sunday.

"I worked my whole life for this". I've never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I've lived and don't plan on starting this weekend. 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.

The Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of the fines Thomas accrued during his holdout.

Seattle has not wanted to give Thomas an extension, apparently as part of its "retooling" that also saw the team move on from the likes of Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett, wanting Thomas to play out the final year.

The Seahawks reportedly called the Cowboys on draft night, asking for the 50th pick alone in exchange for Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowler. Chancellor missed the first two games before reporting.

Even with Wednesday's news, all signs continue point the way they have for months: Thomas staying angry, playing out the final season of his contract, and becoming a free agent to sign elsewhere in March.
