Earl Thomas flips off Seahawks sideline as he's carted off field


Thomas had an acrimonious relationship with the Seahawks all offseason.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters following the game Thomas broke his leg.

As Thomas was being carted off the field, he appeared to make an obscene gesture. As Thomas was being carted off, he turned toward the Seahawks bench area and chose to flip the bird at someone.

"People that are criticizing whatever happened don't understand that this is an earth-shattering moment for a kid, " Carroll said, saying Thomas "Went right to what it's going to take to get back".

President Joko Widodo opened the door to the dozens of worldwide aid agencies and NGOs lined up to provide live-saving assistance. Local military spokesman Mohammad Thorir said the area adjacent to a public cemetery on a hill can hold as many as 1,000 bodies.

Much like Le'Veon Bell in Pittsburgh, Thomas wanted either a long-term deal to give him some long-term security or he wanted a trade out of Seattle.

When Thomas' contract expires at the end of the year, he will become a free agent and free to sign with any team. and it likely won't be with the Seahawks. "This is a very, very hard moment that most people would never understand what that was all about".

On Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, though, Thomas hurt his leg during the third quarter on a play where the Cardinals scored a touchdown to tie the game.

Despite the missed practices, Thomas has been productive, notching three interceptions in as many games before Sunday.
