Thomas has not participated in any activities with the Seahawks since the end of the 2017 season in an attempt to get an extension on a four-year, $40 million contract that runs out after the 2018 season.

The safety posted an Instagram message Wednesday morning, expressing his frustration with the negotiation process. "I've never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I've lived and don't plan on starting this weekend".

The Seahawks tried to find a trade partner for Thomas, who had previously stated he wouldn't report without a new contract in place, but were unable to come to terms on a deal. "Or trade me to a team that wants me to be part of their future", he wrote.

Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten".

On Wednesday the quest has reached its apparent conclusion as Thomas announced he will report to the Seattle Seahawks and play for them this year.
