Should the Cowboys Take Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas’ Comments Seriously? You Bet!

“If y’all got the chance to come get me, come get me!”

That was the comment by Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, after the Seahawks’ 21-12 victory over Dallas on Sunday, and the comment was to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett as the teams were leaving the field.

It had to be an emotional moment for Garrett, as he might not even be around as the head coach of the Cowboys in 2018, but for the moment to be caught on tape speaks volumes for how much Thomas really wants out of Seattle and to play for the Cowboys, a team he knows all too well.

Thomas, a Texas native who played at the University of Texas, sought out Garrett and basically made it known that he wants to be in Big D next season, as

“I went to the locker room to talk to [Dez] Bryant, and I saw Coach Garrett,” he said via ESPN.

“I’ve always been a Cowboys fan growing up. But the biggest thing when I say ‘Come get me’ is, I don’t literally mean like, ‘Come get me now.’ I’m still in the prime of my career. I still want to be here, but when Seattle kicks me to the curb, please — the Cowboys — come get me. That’s the only place I would rather be if I get kicked to the curb. So that’s what I meant by it. People take life too serious. That’s just who I am.”

Thomas is set to make $8.5 million next season with the Hawks, and if they are going to look to rebuild, they might just let the former 2010 draft pick walk.

Right into the waiting arms of the Cowboys, who could use a player much like Thomas, no matter who the coach is in 2018.
