Thomas appears to give finger to Seahawks' sideline after broken leg

During the fourth quarter of Seattle's 20-17 win over Arizona, Thomas had to be carted off the field after suffering a season-ending injury to his left leg.

Thomas had his leg in an air cast and looked visibly dejected as he made his way off of the field and into the locker room.

To say that the standoff between safety Earl Thomas and the Seahawks has been contentious is an understatement. While the Cardinals' sideline showed their support for Thomas, he raised his middle finger in the direction of the Seahawks' sideline. Thomas, Seattle's first-round pick in 2010, has been one of the best safeties in the National Football League throughout the decade.

Thomas" action prompted a different response from Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, who commented on Instagram that he will "continue to be the "bad guy' for ALL of us" as he remains a holdout amid his own contract dispute.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Sunday morning that the Seahawks were looking for two second-round picks in exchange for Thomas.

"I don't know anything about that", Seattle coach Pete Carroll said when asked about the gesture.

The injury happened on the same field on which Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman were hurt last season, the final Seahawks game for both.
