Earl Thomas and the Dallas Cowboys, man.
It’s been oddly quiet on the ET front this week considering the team he lobbied to get him when last season effectively ended is visiting the team he’s currently playing for (in a disgruntled way, mind you). The Cowboys were reportedly heavily invested in trying to trade for Thomas, but they never could get anything done with the Seahawks.
This obviously makes this game interesting. Will Thomas be bitter? Will he perhaps personally escort Cowboys pass-catchers into the endzone out of retaliation against Seattle? He’d have to play for any of that to be possible, and he might not even do that. Seriously.
New issue: Pete Carroll very vague discussing Earl Thomas missing another practice today. “Personal” issue. Coach not sure about All-Pro’s availability Sunday vs Dallas. #Seahawks @thenewstribune pic.twitter.com/LPewth7tBu— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) September 21, 2018
Thomas didn’t appear anywhere on the Seahawks injury report, and as this tweet notes this is apparently a personal matter for Earl Thomas. Today is Friday and we’re inside of 48 hours to kickoff; Pete Carroll being vague about this doesn’t seem to bode well.
Whatever is going on with Earl Thomas the word around the Seahawks beat is definitely that Coach Carroll is being vague. One reporter went as far as calling him intentionally vague.
Earl Thomas is dealing with a personal matter, Pete Carroll says. Wasn’t available today. Carroll being intentionally vague about the situation and Thomas’ status for Sunday.— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) September 21, 2018
Will Earl Thomas play against the Cowboys on Sunday? Will the Seahawks trade him away as soon as the game is over like many hope? There are a lot of questions and right now there aren’t many answers.
