Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is ending his holdout ahead of Seattle’s week 1 matchup on Sunday against the Broncos.  He said in his announcement that he’s never let his teammates, city or fans down.

I worked my whole life for this….. I’ve never let me teammates, city or fans down as long as I’ve lived and don’t plan on starting this weekend. With that being said, the disrespect has been well noted and will not be forgotten. Father Time may have an undefeated record but best believe I plan on taking him into triple overtime when it comes to my career.

The Seahawks have a completely different secondary this year with Thomas being the last link to the Legion of Boom.  They will certainly need him to help anchor the defense.  

At the end of his holdout, he didn’t get a new contract or traded, but Thomas did get to miss the preseason and the abuse of training camp.  He should be feeling nice and rested.
