Mike McCarthy says Cowboys discussed Earl Thomas following his release from Baltimore
Earl Thomas openly lobbied for the Cowboys to “come get me” near the end of his run with Seattle. Now, after he was released by the Ravens for conduct detrimental to the team, the Cowboys are the reported favorite to land Thomas, a seven-time Pro Bowl safety and Texas native.
During his press conference Monday morning, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said that he has discussed Thomas with Will McClay, the team’s vice president of player personnel. That being said, McCarthy added that the team is “very confident in where we are as the 80-man roster.” He also said that questions regarding available players are more for McClay, team owner/general manager Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones, the club’s director of player personnel.
