The 2018 NFL season came to a close earlier this month as the New England Patriots dominated the Los Angeles Rams en route to the team's sixth Super Bowl victory. With the win, New England moved into a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Lombardi Trophies in NFL history.

Now that the 2018 season is in the rear view, NFL teams are preparing their respective rosters for the upcoming campaign. One of the biggest free agents on the market this year is former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.

After sitting out the first half of the season recovering from injury, Thomas eventually returned to the field for Seattle and broke his leg. Now that he's a free agent, a different NFC team is the favorite to land him.

The Dallas Cowboys have emerged as the favorites after Thomas enrolled his kids in school in the Dallas area.

On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers corner - and former teammate of Thomas - Richard Sherman suggested Thomas will sign with the Cowboys "if the money is equal."

Thomas, a former Texas Longhorn, is one of the best safeties in the game.

He'd make an immediate impact for the Cowboys, who have a key young nucleus of linebackers with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.
