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. 

Asked if he has been told that he’ll be fined, Thomas said, “I’m sure I’ll have a slip in my locker.”

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