Earl Thomas will not be signing with the Houston Texans

Free agent S Earl Thomas will not be signing a contract with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas visited with the Texans on Monday, but it appears that both sides couldn't agree to terms. Thomas is a Texas native and 3x first-team All-Pro. Going back home seemed like a good fit and would have given Texans fans something to root for after a woeful start to the season, but it wasn't in the cards. The Texans D/ST is nothing more than a bye week streamer.

Earl Thomas likely to sign with the Texans this week

Earl Thomas, who is visiting with the Texans after being released by the Ravens on August 23rd, is likely to sign with the Texans this week. Thomas would need to pass COVID-19 testing protocols before he can sign. This situation is developing quickly. Look for more updates before the Texans' game this week.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas would be an immediate improvement for a Texans defense that ranks dead last in rushing yards allowed per game and fourth to last in points allowed per game. The Texans rank third in total passing yards allowed per game but only because teams would rather run against them than pass. Thomas played 942 snaps for the Ravens last season and ranked fifth with 0.17 yards allowed per coverage snap. Even with Thomas, owners can fade the Texans defense in standard redraft leagues for now.

Earl Thomas: Jerry Jones says Cowboys aren't out of sweepstakes

During an interview on Tuesday morning, Jerry Jones said the Cowboys aren't out of the Earl Thomas sweepstakes.

Fantasy Impact

Jones said that the Cowboys haven't visited with Thomas but added that doing so would probably be the next step. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported this morning that Dallas wouldn't be signing Thomas, but Jones' words don't match his report. Other teams will likely jump into the "sweepstakes" in the coming weeks.

Earl Thomas released by the Ravens

The Ravens have released S Earl Thomas for conduct detrimental to the team, per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Thomas was released by the Ravens Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team. He was sent home early from practice Friday after getting into an altercation with the teammate Chuck Clark. The Cowboys, 49ers and the Texans reportedly are interested in signing Thomas. The former seven-time Pro Bowler made $22 million in one season with the Ravens and will look to latch onto another team.
