Earl Thomas said he expects to be fined by the Seahawks for sitting out a pair of practices earlier this week, which he said was done in an attempt to protect himself.
Thomas had a pair of interceptions in the Seahawks’ 24-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, which proves practicing doesn’t matter all that much for him.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Sunday morning that the team is considering a hefty fine against Thomas for conduct detriment to the team after he sat out Wednesday and Friday.
The Seahawks are considering a significant fine to Earl Thomas for conduct detrimental for twice missing practice. No final decision made. He's expected to play vs. Cowboys AND the Chiefs have emerged as a possible trade partner if Thomas is dealt this year, per sources.

Asked if he has been told that he’ll be fined, Thomas said, “I’m sure I’ll have a slip in my locker.”
Asked Pete Carroll for the most accurate description of why Earl Thomas didn’t practice this past week, and if this is what #Seahawks will have to endure to get what they got from him today. @thenewstribune pic.twitter.com/DHz5g92F98

Thomas probably realizes now he’s way better off playing in Seattle.
