Running Recap: Seahawks’ home opener against Dallas Cowboys

Running Recap: Seahawks’ home opener against Dallas Cowboys

To be able to show up on Sunday, and play better than anyone else on the field, makes Earl Thomas one of the best players in the National Football League, and it's why he's this week's Seahawks Player of the Game.

Thomas' second interception was one of two turnovers forced by Seattle in the fourth quarter. The 29-year-old is an obvious trade candidate for the foreseeable future, and he's drawing plenty of interest from top contenders (additionally, he should be expecting a major fine for his negligent actions).

The Hawks won't be the only ones in the Earl Thomas sweepstakes, as he has been linked to the Cowboys for quite some time.

Since then, he has been embroiled in a staredown with the Seahawks, who have given new contracts to lesser players such as wide receiver Tyler Lockett, while playing hardball with the final remaining member of the "Legion of Boom".

Thomas' absence earlier this week comes after he was a holdout for the offseason and preseason.

"I need to make sure my body is 100 (percent), and I'm investing in myself". If they were invested in me, I would be out there practicing.

He also said he heard talk about the possibility of a deal between the Seahawks and Cowboys.

"I don't know if they were joking or not", Thomas said.

Dallas reportedly already offered a second-round pick for Thomas, but the Seahawks wanted more.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen also reported that the Chiefs "have emerged as a candidate if a deal is made before the October 30 trade deadline". Seattle and Dallas play at 1:25 p.m. Sunday on the official home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.

Watching the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3 was a hard thing to do.

"I had a poor performance today", Elliott said during the post-game according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
