Pete Carroll -- Cut Earl Thomas 'a little slack' over gesture

Adjust Comment Print

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.

The image of Thomas seemingly giving the finger to his own team will likely be the final and lasting image of the All-Pro in a Seattle uniform.

Is there anyone outside of the Seattle Seahawks' front office not sympathetic to the worries of safety Earl Thomas?

Thomas broke his lower leg on a non-contact play.

Magnitude Earthquake And Tsunami Rock Indonesia; At Least 380 Dead
Indonesia lies on the Ring of Fire, meaning it suffers from dozens of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions each year. It is home to 260 million people. "This is already a tragedy, but it could get much worse".

"I love Earl. I've always loved him", Carroll stated after the game.

Carroll also said the team will have to make a roster move over the next day or so to replace tight end Will Dissly, also out for the season with a patellar tendon injury. Thomas and Bell, for the record, are the outliers: high-profile talents who can sit out, garner media coverage, and still slide back into the game if they so choose. Plenty of players on the fringes of the league, the guys you watch on Hard Knocks who get cut on a whim, have neither the leverage nor the ability to cash in. I don't think nothing of it.

Several players and coaches have expressed how much Thomas will be missed. He went into more detail Monday. He was clear about moving forward. "It was really important, and I thought Earl was a really great man about dealing with it all". The Seahawks have not yet received word on whether Mychal Kendricks, who has replaced Wright at weakside linebacker for the past three games, will again be eligible to play this week as he appeals his suspension for his connection to insider trading.

The star defensive back wasn't shy about his feelings, either.
