Seattle six-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas broke his leg in the fourth quarter of the Seahawks 20-17 victory over Arizona and is out for the season. Thomas broke the leg while defending a touchdown pass to Cardinal wide out Chad Williams and was removed from the field on a cart. X-rays later confirmed the fractured fibula. Thomas became one of the stories of the week after flipping off his own sideline while being carted away, apparently in frustration of not getting a long term contract extension which resulted in Thomas holding out the entire preseason.
Thomas is in the final year of his current contract and will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The holdout turned ugly with Thomas, a possible Hall of Famer, not reporting until Week One of the regular season and missing several practices weekly since returning with a myriad of minor injuries. Unhappy with not having the security of a long-term deal, Thomas noted on social media that “the disrespect was well noted and would not be forgotten.” Now Thomas is likely have played his last game as a Seahawk and will have to prove that he is no damaged gods to his potential new teams.
