Safety Earl Thomas would be the likely subject of any such talks between the two teams and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cowboys upped their offer for the disgruntled defensive back within the last week.

The Seahawks have agreed to wipe away nearly all of the fines Thomas accrued during his holdout.

Thomas is in the final year of a contract that pays $8.5 million, a contract the Seahawks have shown no willingness to extend.

The Dallas Cowboys, linked to Thomas for years and specifically since January when he chased down head coach Jason Garrett and told Dallas to come get him, actually increased their offer in recent days.

Thomas wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of himself in the Seahawks' weight room, that: "I worked my whole life for this...." So, a potential deal around the trade deadline would make sense but may depend on how well the team is doing at the time.

But in an Instagram post Wednesday, Thomas said he wouldn't let the Seahawks down by continuing to hold out into the regular season.

"They believe the closer Seattle gets to the trading deadline with a disgruntled star who won't be back next season, the more conciliatory the Seahawks will become in their demands".

The Cowboys were content to stay put while Thomas refused to take part in Seattle's offseason program.

Thomas is a three-time first-team All-Pro and was the anchor for the Seattle defence that appeared in consecutive Super Bowls, winning the first.

Thomas wrote, "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten".
