Where is Earl Thomas Now?

March 17, 2024

Nine years ago, Earl Thomas was the crown jewel of Seattle’s vaunted defense and a first-team All Pro who helped lead them to back-to-back Super Bowl titles. He was one of the best safety in the league, and his gregarious personality and honesty off the field endeared him to many. He married a lovely woman and was on his way to becoming a very wealthy man.

But then things took a turn for the worse. He got into a nasty fight with a teammate during training camp in 2020, and the Ravens released him for “personal conduct.” Then in 2021 he was arrested after allegedly assaulting his wife and punching a woman.

Now, the 33-year-old is a free agent who doesn’t have an NFL contract. And on Thursday his Texas home was engulfed in flames, and police believe it may have been started by lightning.

The Texans sent him home prior to his scheduled workout without any deal being made, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport report. The 49ers are also reportedly not interested in making a move for Thomas. It’s a shame because he was a terrific player during his nine-year tenure with the Seahawks, and he has the potential to return to his former glory as a safety in this league. If he can get his life together, it would be great to see him do so. The world is full of sports comeback stories, and if Earl Thomas can pull it off, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t root for him.
