Earl Thomas is quickly becoming a troubled star player in the NFL. From flipping off his own bench in Seattle to punching a teammate in Baltimore and everything in between. Now a free agent, Thomas is looking for a new home.
Dallas has been the overwhelming favorite to land his services, though Ian Rapaport has come out and said that it is unlikely the Cowboys go after Thomas.
Appearing on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, owner Jerry Jones called out Rapaport saying, "he doesn't know what he's talking about."
Rapaport has not backed down from his report and instead doubling down.
Earl Thomas has been wanting to be a Dallas Cowboy since 2017 when he told then coach Jason Garrett to "come get me." There have been rumors that the Cowboys would make a trade for the safety, even after he broke his leg early on in week four of the 2018 season. They obviously did not as Thomas signed a four-year deal with the Ravens.
New Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has admitted to talking to both Jerry and Stephen Jones about Thomas but said that it is their decision, as well as Will McClay's but he is happy with their current roster.
"The conversations I've been involved with -- we had a chance to get a thorough personnel meeting just two days ago -- we're very confident in where we are as far as the 80-man roster."
The current starting safeties for the Cowboys are Xavier Woods and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
