Earl skips practice for unknown reason
Fri Sep 21, 2018 3:07 pm
  • Pete said Earl didn't show up for practice no reason given from Pete other than an unknown personnel issue with ET. Make of that what you will. Did not confirm he would play Sunday. Britt likely out for the game.

    Trade to Dallas after the game incoming?

  • Poor guy, he is probably struggling to feed his family. Glad the Seahawks are helping him through this difficult time.

    Pete has said no, but it's not uncommon for players to not practice or play if a trade is being finalized.

  • This is probably the one game that the Seahawks can get by without Earl back there. The Cowboys have no threat at WRs or TEs. Stop Dallas' run game, you stop the Cowboys offense.

  • Trade Earl and we are 16 million under the cap.
    Earl could potentially become a disgruntled Steelers runningback.

  • On reddit someone said his wife is expecting soon...

    Wyche said he spoke to a couple of Hawks players and they said they expect Earl to play (watch the video, it's not written in the article)

  • If the cowboys were truly intent on trading for him, it kind of makes sense to do it now instead of earlier... You have some film to see if he's still balling (he is), and you get to assure that he isn't playing against you when acquired.. If Earl doesn't suit up I'd be shocked if it isn't announced he was traded, that being said i also wouldn't be shocked if he still suits up and plays, would be shocked if not one or the other though

  • He’ll play. Probably protecting himself from injury with a rest day. Keeping it vague keeps the Cowboys on their toes.

  • If they were trading him this weekend, would they have him a full participant in practice yesterday? Anyone recall any similar protocol for in-season trades?

    Regarding the rumor that it’s simply his wife expecting, has Pete ever informed the media of such with other players?

  • Not unless the Cowboys up their trade...But it sound like a personal issue...Probably reason why Carol was so vague, no business for him to say it.

    I think almost everyone was surmising a possible trade following the game, not before. And with the oddball drama we’ve had this year already, there’s no telling what might happen next.

    Looked it up, sounds about right judging from a glance at Instagram, hopefully all is well and people who were speculating (myself included) feel stupid on Sunday

  • If this is related to his wife expecting, I have a hard time believing Pete would be so vague and ambiguous about the whole affair. No, something more is developing here.

    Doubt it's a trade anyway.

  • Earl's made it clear he wants an extension or trade to somewhere willing to give him one. He has zero incentive to do anything other than bare minimum as things stand. So as they stand, and as this is a rebuilding year, give Earl what he's requested. He's earned it.

  • Obviously he conceived the baby at a specific time 9 months ago so he wouldn't have to play against the Cowboys

    Im Not offended.

    Just think your post is drastic considering the unknown.

    Understand your sentiments on not wanting him here if he doesn't want to be here

  • The weird part about this is he didn't miss practice, he was there, and just didn't practice.

    If it's related to him having a kid or some family situation why is he there?
    If he's injured he's not on the injury report and Carroll said he wasn't injured, so this would come with a fine from the NFL.
    If he was getting a veteran day off why not just say that instead of some weird vague thing about a personal situation.

    What's a personal situation that allows someone to be at practice but not to practice?

    An impending trade (or what they were hoping was an impending trade) is the only explanation that makes any sense, but that's faaaaarrr from a lock.

    That’s false. Why would a team give a top dollar safety contract to a 30 year old player who did the bare minimum?

    You really think a team will give him a huge contract(which is what he wants) when he decides when he wants to play hard or not?

    Also, through 2 weeks, ET is PFFs highest rated safety.

  • Play out your contract.. Yeah the one you agreed to and signed.. quit being a prima dona.. I get sick of these players agreeing to and signing a contract and later on think they can change the terms of it.. He was happy as a pig in shit when he signed it .. now he is just a pig in shit making waves... unless of course something actually happened to his family then there may be a reason which is acceptable.

    The same question can be said, why would a person being traded be at team practice, especially if we are going to be playing that team this Sunday.

    Maybe just maybe he's there but ready to go if the wife is expecting or maybe there were some complications....This is getting very tiresome of all people our fans turning on our players and coaches. Yall should be ashamed of yourselves. Why not just wait until Sunday, if he is traded or doesn't suit and play then start bitching...
