I think fans naturally overrate draft picks.

According to multiple National Football League insiders, though, the Cowboys tried multiple times to acquire Thomas - who went to high school outside Beaumont and played college ball at Texas - during his holdout in Seattle. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

As ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed earlier in the day Wednesday, the Cowboys offered a second-round pick for Thomas and then opted to back out when it was declined.

"Until something changes", Rapoport elaborated on NFL GameDay Season Preview on Tuesday, "my understanding is Earl Thomas is not expected to show up and play for the Seahawks".

Thomas is a three-time first-team All-Pro and was the anchor for the Seattle defence that appeared in consecutive Super Bowls, winning the first.

That has led to a stalemate that has had Seattle entertaining trade offers for Thomas since last spring.

For months, Thomas lived in a world where workout videos posted to his Instagram account - where he announced the end of his holdout - served as practice footage.

"With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten", Thomas wrote after indicating he wouldn't let his teammates down this weekend.
