I don't think any player should be bitter about not getting a 3rd high paying contract in the NFL. If you make your millions in your second contract, everything after is gravy. Maybe QB's should expect at least a 3rd big deal if they are probowl level players. But every other position starts to fall off after age 30.
It's all pride and ego.
You're not the one playing...Also these are HOF players, not a JAG.
If the player can still produce, why not pay the player another contract. Sherman wasn't exactly there for his athletic ability and Thomas was still young at 28.
Because Earl elected to go against team doctor recommendions of surgery to his leg the first go round, that weakened the leg to the point it easily snapped the second time. He is damaged goods and in part due to his own stupidity and it is showing on the field as well. Pete and John knew this, and would not pay him top $$ he was demanding. I suggest you get over it....he's NOT coming back.
Well i dont want him back now, we have Adams & Diggs. Im really looking forward to this tandem...Come on lets be real here, our defense has been below average since Thomas left. We should have extended him or at least traded him at the time. We really handle Thomas badly IMO. I can see why it ended bitterly.
I understand it was a bad breakup between management, i dont see why it should be with fans. He never said anything badly about Seattle or his teammates. His anger was toward management.
He gave 100% when playing and didn't hold out.
