Jerry Jones admits Cowboys have had trade talks for Earl Thomas

One of the hot-button topics of the NFL offseason has been the status of Seattle Seahawks star safety Earl Thomas. The All-Pro safety has opted to holdout from the team in a push for a new contract or a trade.

One team Thomas has consistently been linked to is the Dallas Cowboys. While there have been rumblings of interest from the two sides, it seems the Cowboys have actually spoken with the Seahawks about a potential trade.

As Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News revealed, Jones admitted he’s had talks with the Seahawks about a trade for Thomas.

On the surface, this may not seem like a big deal, but the fact that they’ve spoken is interesting. Thomas has pulled no punches on the fact that he wants to join the Cowboys, but whether or not the team could make a deal happen remained to be seen.
