Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas announced on Twitter that he is skipping the team's mandatory minicamp amidst contract extension negotiations.
"I want everyone especially the 12s to know that I want to remain a Seahawk for the rest of my career but I also believe that based on my production over the last 8 years that I've earned the right to have this taken care of as soon as possible," Thomas said on Twitter.
Seattle is starting a rebuild after cutting Richard Sherman and trading Michael Bennett, but have been willing to discuss a long-term extension with the six-time Pro Bowler.
However, Thomas' future with the team remains somewhat murky. Following their Week 16 matchup during the 2017 season, Thomas tracked down Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett in the tunnel and told him "if you have a chance to get me, come get me," indicating his desire to play for Dallas.
The two sides also reportedly discussed a deal involving him during the draft.
Thomas had 88 tackles with two interceptions this past season.Back to the Seattle Seahawks Newsfeed
