In addition to his two picks, Thomas also registered a team-high seven tackles and two passes defended, leading the Seahawks' defense to a dominant performance against an inept-looking Cowboys offense.
The Seahawks appear to be fed up with Earl Thomas' latest behavior after the safety missed practice twice this past week to deal with personal matters.
Thomas will cost a lot, but if the Chiefs are true Super Bowl contenders, as they have proven to be this early in the year, then the price would be worth it.

"I felt like that was just in the moment and if they were going to trade for me and extend me, they should have did it, " Thomas said of his gesture that drew a 15-yard penalty. "Honestly. I looked at him on the first play - well, that's what I responded to". I got it now.
According to Gregg Ball of the Times Tribune in Seattle, Thomas didn't practice today but was at practice.
