Seahawks unfazed by Earl Thomas' one-finger salute

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas suffered a lower leg fracture in the fourth quarter of their 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
As Thomas was being carted off the field, he appeared to make an obscene gesture.
Some of Thomas' teammates said they understood his frustration.
"We play a very, very emotional game", Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. "It just wasn't. It was going to be about Earl getting his last big deal, feeling totally disrespected that he did not get a third contract from a team that had given him, and he'd earned, nearly $60 million - and he wanted more".
It was the middle finger seen around the world. Steelers star back Le'Veon Bell hasn't played a single down in 2018 because of that very situation, doubly fed up with having his prime-years contract negotiations stymied by being slapped with the franchise tag-which comes with a mandated one-year deal-for both of the past two seasons. This is the same kind of injury that Jimmy Graham had in 2016 and it seemed to take Graham some time to get back to being fully healthy.
While Carroll is in no way defending the contract standoff; he is defending Thomas for being angry. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the Seahawks had still been open to trading Thomas, but that they had refused to budge on their asking price of a 2019 second-round pick.
Carroll reiterated that he felt the team and Thomas had come to a good understanding of how to handle the rest of the season after the controversy the previous week over Thomas deciding not to practice twice and then saying he would continue to take steps to protect himself.
Several players and coaches have expressed how much Thomas will be missed. "I've loved everything he's ever done for us".
