Will the Cowboys sign Earl Thomas?

It’s no secret that the Dallas Cowboys have been looking for a veteran to help anchor the back end of their defense over the past two seasons, and now there’s a player that may have fallen right into their lap.

The Cowboys made it known they had kicked the tires of Jamal Adams, reaching out to the Jets about acquiring the superstar safety during the time leading up to the trade deadline last season. But the Jets weren’t willing to part with him at that time.

But it’s now possible that they could acquire one on the cheap, as the Ravens released Earl Thomas over the weekend, and maybe a change of scenery could do him some good. Thomas clearly didn’t mesh well with the Ravens coaching staff and a few of his teammates, as he got into a fight with Chuck Clark during a recent practice, which essentially led to his release.

Maybe a relocation to the state he was born in will help matters, though. There have been rumors about the Cowboys potentially being interested in Thomas, and team owner Jerry Jones didn’t rule it out when asked during a recent radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan.

We could see it happening. This would be a Cowboys-esque type of move.
