Earl Thomas wants to get a new contract from the Seattle Seahawks. And if he does not get what he is looking for, the star safety is ready to move on and force his way to the Dallas Cowboys.

Thomas, the 14th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, is considered the best safety in the NFL today. However, he has yet to get a new deal from the Cowboys and will enter the final year of his four-year, $40 million contract.

Earl Thomas threatens Seahawks

Thomas made it no secret that he wants to stay in Seattle, the only he has played for in his eight seasons in the league.

However, the 28-year-old insisted that he deserves a contract extension from the Seahawks.

The former Texas standout revealed that he is willing to hold out if he will not get a new deal in the offseason. He pointed out that he wants to protect himself and his family, saying that he will not put his body on the line without a new contract from Seattle after next season.

“As far as my future in Seattle, I think if they want me, you know, money talks,” Thomas told ESPN. “We'll get something accomplished. Other than that, I'm just taking it one day at a time.”

Thomas to Dallas Cowboys?

And if the Cowboys decide to move on from him, Thomas also made his preferred destination clear. The six-time Pro Bowler wants to play for the Dallas Cowboys.

In fact, ESPN reported on December, that the veteran tackle was caught telling Cowboys coach Jason Garrett to get him if they get the chance.

Thomas confirmed that he told Garrett he wants to play in Dallas if possible. The four-time first team All Pro addressed the issue again on Sunday. He told Jane Slater of NFL Network that coming from Texas, he is a big Cowboys fan growing up.

The Cowboys are expected to reach out to the Seahawks if they make Thomas available in a trade. Dallas will see their title chances improve if they will successfully acquire the Orange, Texas native.

Thomas tallied 88 tackles and two interceptions to go along with one touchdown in 14 games for the Seahawks this season. The Cowboys are expected to look for defensive help in the offseason, and Thomas fits the billing.

According to 24/7 Sports, Thomas will bring Super Bowl DNA to Dallas. Moreover, the veteran tackle could also help budding players Jeff Heath, Kavon Frazier and Xavier Woods reach their full potential moving forward under Thomas’ tutelage. And being a Texas native, he is also expected to bring in his A-game night in and night out.
