Dallas has Seattle's old defensive coordinator from the Legion of Boom era, so that might be a reason for Earl to want to go there.

He's still going to want to be paid mega money though and they are about to break the bank on Prescott who has reportedly said he wants to be paid big.

Earl's injury history must be taken into consideration for this to be an option. I'd hate to overpay for a guy who has lost a major step.

Too old, too expensive, too hurt. Also didn't like the way he handled himself and his contract negotiations this past year.

Earl Thomas Flips Middle Finger To Seahawks Bench! - YouTube
I never understood the media fascination with painting that team out to be like they are some awesome role models. The Legion of Boom had one of the most unbearable bandwagons since the 90's Cowboys. They were completely unlikable as a team outside of QB Russell Wilson who is a stand up guy.

I still remember Lynch grabbing his junk scoring TDs and generally being a jerk to the media, but was given a free pass for it. The NFL even had to edit out his TD celebrations in the playoffs cause he always had to grab his junk when scoring.

Thomas was given a free pass for his middle finger, as well as Sherman there and all his antics. I forget what player it was in the Super Bowl who had the TD celebration as if he was sitting on the toilet.

I hated the LOB and hoped to see them fail from day one. I don't care how much people hate the Patriots, I was thankful for them beating them in that SB and ending all that "dynasty" talk. Perfect karma the way it ended with that Butler INT. People forget that it took Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers choking away a 16-0 lead to even get them back in that SB. They had no business being there and then choked a 10 point lead away to Brady in the 4th quarter. I still laugh when I see that gif of Sherman's smile fading away.

Seattle is already overrated in the off season. Brian Schottenhiemer is still the OC and after they made Jason Garrett of all people look like a competent coach in the playoffs, I'm not a big believer in Sneaky Pete as a head coach. They aren't going further than the divisional round unless some team chokes all over themselves like how Green Bay did in 2014 or the Vikings with the missed field goal in 2015.

Precisely.

Dak, Zeke, that All Pro Guard, DLawrence and Cooper still require new deals.

From a financial standpoint, they could put together a package to appease Earl but that would be their only "splash" off season signings.

Just don't think Stephen Jones will give Earl a call this off season.

Why the hell would we going after a banged up loud mouth with a Madonna mindset? He would destroy the locker room. No thank you. No more Seattle players

Keep our defense intact with the exception of a DT and DE additions. We need to be in offensive mode during the off season and draft!
