Moore says that the Cowboys chances of signing Thomas shouldn’t be dismissed, despite the fact that they have a number of players in line for big-money extensions.
The Cowboys attempted to trade for Thomas last year, but never got a deal worked out with the Seahawks. Moore expects Dallas to be equally aggressive in their pursuit of Thomas, as they were to sign WR Sammy Watkins last year.
Ian Rapoport reported earlier that the Cowboys are “by no means out” on Thomas, which could set up a bidding war between them and the 49ers.
The Cowboys are clearly in the market for safety help this offseason, but there are real questions about the kind of money they can spend on free agents.
One report from a few weeks ago mentioned that Thomas could be looking for as much as $15 million per year while others have said it could be closer to $13 million.
Thomas, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2010. He played out the final year of his five-year, $44.725 million contract that includes $27.725 million guaranteed and made a base salary of $8.5 million for the 2018 season.
Thomas will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Thomas appeared in four games and recorded 22 tackles, three interceptions and five pass defense for the Seahawks.
