After a regular season game between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys in 2017, Earl Thomas made a point to run after Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to tell him - and the Cowboys in general - to come and get him over the course of the offseason. "I've never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I've lived and don't plan on starting this weekend".
Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys offered a second-round pick but Seattle said it wasn't enough. Per Schefter, they offered to send a second-round pick to Seattle.
The Seahawks are not in negotiations with Thomas, and there has been nothing to indicate that they are interested in giving him an extension while his current deal has a season remaining.
That Thomas wrote that the "disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten" means Thomas obviously is reporting rather unhappily.

Particular praise was heaped on 20-year-old Osaka, who became the first Japanese woman to get into the top four at the US Open . She immediately lost her serve but then broke back to level at 2-2 after the Latvian's clever dropshots began to misfire.
"I worked my whole life for this", Thomas posted.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said during a TV broadcast Tuesday night that Dallas offered Seattle a third-round pick, but that the Seahawks wanted "a second-rounder and change". According to Pro Football Talk, Thomas is scheduled to make a base salary of $8.5 million this year.
Thomas played for 14 games (all starts) for the Seahawks last season and recorded two interceptions and a touchdown to go with 88 total tackles.
