POLL Should Chiefs trade for Seahawks S Earl Thomas

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, who had hoped to be traded by the Seahawks to a team willing to pay him a big longterm contract, actually appeared to give the Seattle sideline the finger as he was carted off. He's trying to play this game he loves and all of sudden this happens again.

"He had it all just totally figured out and was as emotional as you can get". So give him a little slack.

Speaking to Brock and Salk on Monday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that Thomas should not be judged too harshly, noting what a devastating moment that injury was for the player. This is a very, very hard moment that most people would never understand what it's about, " Carroll said. He wanted to get paid what he believed he was worth specifically to insure himself against a career-derailing injury.

Thomas had played eight seasons since Seattle selected him out of Texas with the 14th overall pick of the 2010 National Football League draft.

While Carroll is in no way defending the contract standoff; he is defending Thomas for being angry.

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

Several players and coaches have expressed how much Thomas will be missed.

Thomas held out the entire preseason as he tried to land a new contract with the Seahawks. Linebacker K.J. Wright could still be out a couple more weeks as he continues to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery he had in late August.
