Thomas' season is over.
Earl Thomas was one piece of the legendary Legion of Boom, but it looks like his time with the Seahawks has come to an end. Thomas had an acrimonious relationship with the Seahawks all offseason. The talented defensive star was on the same path as Le'Veon Bell, and was expected to hold out for more money or a trade until he elected to support his teammates and show up to play. He may be regretting that decision now.
On a play where the Arizona Cardinals' rookie quarterback Josh Rosen threw a pass to receiver Chad Williams, Thomas was injured. The catch resulted in a touchdown, and Thomas' lower leg collides with Willaims as he hops over the receiver in the end zone. A cast was placed on his leg and he was carted off the field. While the Cardinals' sideline showed their support for Thomas, he raised his middle finger in the direction of the Seahawks' sideline. After the game, Coach Pete Carroll confirmed that Thomas had suffered a lower leg fracture. This is Thomas' last contracted year with the Seahawks.
“I love Earl. I’ve always loved him," Carroll stated after the game. "I’ve loved everything he’s ever done for us.” It's unsure if Thomas shares the same sentiment.
