Earl Thomas is coming off a major injury and he's going to want to be paid mega money. The frontrunner so far in signing him is the Forty Whiners.

I think Honey Badger is an option, despite what the article says.

I'd say no, mainly for salary cap reasons. He would probably be very expensive.

Earl wants to end his career in Dallas.

Let him end it there.
