Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is quite the pre-planner.
The 28-year-old is a Texas native, and has been open about his love for the Lone Star State, as well as his childhood love and adoration for the Dallas Cowboys.
Well, things have been falling apart for the Seahawks of late, with the “Legion of Boom” secondary featuring Thomas that struck fear in opposing offenses is all but obsolete nowadays. So following Seattle’s 21-12 defeat of the Cowboys on Sunday, Thomas decided to have a chat with Dallas head coach Jason Garrett.
Obviously, signing with your childhood favorite team would be a dream come true for most anyone, even if the Cowboys and Seahawks in some senses very much are on the same plain in terms of recent successes.
Thomas was asked about his comments, however, and — although still remaining pretty candid — clarified the purpose of talking to Garrett.
Thomas is signed through next season, so even with his recent sentiments, don’t expect Seattle to just cut him on a whim.
