The latest NFL trade rumors indicate that the Dallas Cowboys could still make a deal to bring safety Earl Thomas to their roster. This speculation comes as the team is looking to add strength at the safety position, and the three-time Pro Bowler would certainly do that. However, it looks like Dallas may be waiting to see if Thomas decides to hold out in terms of his situation with the Seattle Seahawks.

Cowboys still interested?

The Dallas Morning News' David Moore reported on the situation saying that the Cowboys still interested in a trade to bring Thomas to their team.

How much they are interested in bringing Thomas to Dallas is unclear. Previously, Dallas refused to make a deal in which they'd send a second-round NFL Draft pick to the Seahawks.

It's mentioned that the Cowboys are likely to wait and see what Thomas' situation will be with the Seattle Seahawks. While Thomas has threatened to hold out several times, Seahawks' GM John Schneider has said he doesn't expect his star safety will do that. Schneider told the media he believes Thomas "wants to be here."

While other members of the Seattle Seahawks' roster have left via free agency or have been traded, the Seattle front office believes that Earl Thomas will remain on the team for his contract.

He's got one year left on his current deal but could always hold out or refuse to sign an extension which could force the team's hand in a trade.

Dallas' safety situation

Currently, Jeff Heath and the team's sixth-round draft pick Xavier Woods are considered the team's starters at the position. There's also been some speculation that since Jerry Jones said they have cornerbacks who can play the safety spot that maybe Byron Jones would shift over to the position.

Dallas had their chances to draft a safety in the recent 2018 NFL Draft but instead opted to fill other positions. Those included drafting an offensive lineman in the second round and a wideout in the third round. They also could have traded to move up in the first round to acquire Derwin James but didn't make the move. He fell to the No.

17 spot where the Los Angeles Chargers picked him up for their roster after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to pass on him.

The Dallas Cowboys do have some other potential options to look at for the position which include Eric Reid, Tre Boston, and Kenny Vaccaro, according to Pro Football Rumors, but landing Earl Thomas from the Seahawks would clearly be a much better addition.
