"We'll find out. We've got to communicate," Carroll said after the Seahawks wrapped up a three-day rookie minicamp. "Phase 2 doesn't look like it's suiting him right now, so we'll see, we'll see what's happening. Phase 3 is around the corner for us, so we'll see. We've got one more week of Phase 2."
Carroll's comments were addressing a question about if he expects Thomas to sit out until participation becomes mandatory from June 12-14 during veteran minicamp.
Thomas is entering the final year of the four-year, $40 million extension he signed in 2014, which now ranks sixth among safeties in terms of annual average, according to Spotrac.com.
Seattle general manager John Schneider has stated that Thomas' agents have informed him that Thomas won't hold out.
Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowl selection and a three-time first team All-Pro, has been the subject of trade speculation this offseason, with reports citing the Dallas Cowboys as a potential trade partner. Schneider told Seattle's Sports Radio 950 KJR last week that the team isn't trying to trade Thomas.
