Earl Thomas' absence could prove to be one of the more detrimental losses for Seattle this offseason.

NFL insider Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys offered a second round NFL Draft pick to Seattle for star defensive back Earl Thomas.

Seattle wasn't interested - the team wanted more.

Ian Rapoport said "until something changes, Thomas is not expected to report and play for Seattle".

The Seahawks practice at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, and if Thomas is present on the field, the Cowboys and other teams will have to wait until his contract is complete at the end of the season before taking another shot at the Seattle legend.

He was also sacked from Netflix's House Of Cards and edited out of Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World . The allegations, which he has repeatedly denied, have been levelled by actresses, film workers and reporters.

Thomas confirmed his return in an Instagram post, but it appears there is still tension with the Seahawks, as he wrote: "The disrespect has been well-noted and will not be forgotten". According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.

The Cowboys made trade offers at the start of free agency and during the NFL Draft but proposed no more than a third-round pick until this week.

The Cowboys visit Thomas and the Seahawks in Seattle in Week 3.

Even with Wednesday's news, all signs continue point the way they have for months: Thomas staying angry, playing out the final season of his contract, and becoming a free agent to sign elsewhere in March. Chancellor missed the first two games before reporting.

But Seahawks coach Pete Carroll foreshadowed that maybe something was going on when he was asked Monday if there had been any additional contact with Thomas and he paused and said there was "nothing to report".
