While the Dallas Cowboys recently upped their trade offer for safety Earl Thomas, the Seattle Seahawks still refused to budge. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of his fines for missing training camp.
The post was a surprising conclusion to a long off-season of drama centred on whether Thomas would play out the final season of his contract, receive the extension he hoped for, or possibly be traded.
According to multiple National Football League insiders, though, the Cowboys tried multiple times to acquire Thomas - who went to high school outside Beaumont and played college ball at Texas - during his holdout in Seattle.
"I worked my whole life for this", he wrote on instagram.
A source confirmed to ESPN's Dan Graziano that there's no new deal in place between Seattle and Thomas.
The Cowboys do not seem to be keen on surrendering any asset worth more than a third-round pick for Thomas, who may have expressed interest to play for Dallas before, but is only a controllable commodity until the end of the 2018 season.

With Thomas now reporting to camp, a potential trade could be dormant.
According to a source close to the situation, it's his understanding that the Seahawks may now want a first-round pick for Thomas.
Dallas had not been the only club interested in trading for the Seahawks safety, as NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Friday, "multiple teams" had been in the hunt.
Thomas wrote, "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten". Frazier will replace Xavier Woods in the starting lineup as Woods recovers from a hamstring injury.
