Earl Thomas Flips Off Seahawks' Sideline While Being Carted Off Field

02 October, 2018, 13:36 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly stuck on receiving a 2019 second-round pick in a trade deal for Earl Thomas. More

The 29-year-old former first round pick, and still one of the best defensive players in the National Football League, flipped off his own sideline while being carted off the field.

Earl Thomas had a message for his team as he was carted off the field with a broken leg Sunday, but the Seahawks are brushing it off.

On a play where the Arizona Cardinals' rookie quarterback Josh Rosen threw a pass to receiver Chad Williams, Thomas was injured. Unfortunately for the Seahawks, he won't be in the games, either. So Thomas' frustration is understandable considering his value may be considerably lower heading into free agency next year.

A six-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro, Thomas had recorded three interceptions through the first three games of the season. Carroll said on 710 ESPN that players "deserve latitude and they deserve understanding and they deserve empathy" even when "someday they'll see things differently when they look back". "I think sometimes you have to allow people to have their emotions".




If Earl Thomas' middle finger was meant for Pete Carroll on Sunday, it doesn't sound like the Seahawks coach is going to be holding any grudges over the incident.

The Seahawks recovered to win 20-17, salvaging a victory from a game in which they also lost starting tight end Will Dissly.

A holdout through the preseason, Thomas has expressed concern about playing through the end of his contract with no long-term security.
