Earl Thomas did not leave the Seahawks fans or players with a great taste in their mouths.
The six-time Pro Bowl selection’s final moment in a Seahawks uniform saw Thomas flip his middle finger to Seattle’s sideline as he was carted off the State Farm Stadium field.
Thomas’ decision to flip his team the bird, the 29-year-old opened up to NBC’s Peter King about the now-infamous scene.
“A lot of frustration that day,” Thomas told King. “I was in a battle with the team, and I chose to play, and I was betting on myself. So when it happened, it just added to my frustration. I did what I did, and I saw Pete Carroll, and I just was like, ‘You won. You won.’ Just a very disappointing day.”
