NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Wednesday morning brought three more twists to the Earl Thomas saga.

First, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Dallas Cowboys had recently improved their offer for the All-Pro safety. A second round pick has eluded the Seattle Seahawks all offseason as Thomas held out for either a new contract or a trade; per Schefter, the Cowboys finally put a second round selection on the table. Yet, the offer was rejected.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport followed up on Schefter’s report, saying Dallas bowed out of trade negotiations after offering a second.

Soon after Schefter’s update was first reported, another turn was added. Per Josina Anderson, Thomas plans on reporting to the Seahawks on Wednesday, ending his lengthy holdout.

Thomas, as he has done all offseason, communicated his side of the story via an Instagram post published shortly after Anderson’s report.

Per Rapoport, Seattle has agreed to clear the majority of Thomas’s fines as he returns.

The Seahawks begin their week of practice for Week 1 against the Denver Broncos on Wednesday afternoon. With Tedric Thompson still banged up, there’s a chance Thomas goes from holding out to Week 1 starter in a matter of days.
