Seahawks considering giving Earl Thomas fine for antics

Drama continued to surround Earl Thomas on Sunday morning, with multiple reports emerging that the Seattle Seahawks were considering fining him for missing practice last week.

The Cowboys flew to Seattle ready to face the Seahawks and the player they have long coveted - Earl Thomas.

Other inactives for Dallas: Quarterback Mike White, linebacker Chris Covington, guard Xavier Su' a-Filo and tight end Dalton Schultz. "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". Rumors swirled that a trade was in the works, though the Cowboys made it clear if there was, it wasn't to bring Thomas to Dallas.

Thomas was at Friday's practice but did not participate in any drills. Seattle already has turned down a second-round draft pick from the Cowboys, and wanted more for Thomas.

Mortensen continued in a second tweet: "Thomas' unhappiness is simple: Seahawks have taken hard-line stance on new deal since February".

The 29-year-old Thomas had been very vocal about his desire for a new deal as he enters the final season of a four-year, $40 million contract and is set to make $8.5 million in 2018.

The Dallas Cowboys' newly-acquired receiver Brice Butler is not playing today against the Seattle Seahawks. The move did not succeed despite Thomas' efforts and he reported to the team before the start of the regular season. He wrote in an Instagram post that the "disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten".
