Seahawks safety Earl Thomas’ season came to an end when the 29-year-old broke his left leg on Sunday. He’e now stuck in the scenario he was trying to avoid when he decided to holdout before the season.
Thomas will now be a free agent coming off of an injury at the end of the season. Instead of a player in the beginning years of a long-term contract, which is what he was hoping to accomplish by holding out.
