^^Per my sources and the story above, Earl's teammates in Baltimore had had enough with him becasuse:
a-since joining the Ravens, he has been chronically late to meetings and practices
b-he violently confronted nose tackle Brandon Williams after a loss to Cleveland last season, threatened to kill him and had to be separated from him by teammates
c-at Friday's practice, he blew a coverage and his teammate, Chuck Clark removed his helmet and threw it down in frustration. Thomas then promptly walked over to him and punched him in the face, severely injuring him and knocking him down before teammates and coaches rushed in.
Apparently, the Ravens wanted him gone so bad, they didn't even seek out a potential trade partner. They just cut him and are willing to eat his 15 Million dollars in salary against the cap, though they are going to try to withhold the 10 million he was guaranteed this year due to his conduct. Thomas is, obviously, expected to appeal this decision. But man, it sounds like Earl wasn't a really good teammate in Baltimore and they had a great coach and a winning team, and a great defense and a great young QB, so what was his problem?!!? Anyway, Dallas is expected to sign him ow that he has been released!
