As we all know, the Seattle Seahawks and Earl Thomas have been in contract negotiations for quite sometime now.
Coming off a 4-year, $40 million contract, Thomas held out all of the training camp including the preseason, and eventually decided to play right before the first game of the season.
Thomas has also been holding out of practices but playing in games.
Well, of course, Earl Thomas got hurt today, and was carted off the field. Which shows why a 30-year-old would want a contract extension when he is the best safety in the league and puts his body on the line everyday.
Thomas proceeded to flip off the Seahawks sideline as he was carted off. A big ol’ “fuck you” to the team that didn’t invest in his future.
Is this how the #Seahawks career of Earl Thomas will end?
