Former Seahawks safety Earl Thomas says he wants to resume his NFL career in 2022, according to a report by Adam Schefter at ESPN.

Thomas was a first-round draft pick by Seattle back in 2010 and became arguably the most-important piece for the great Legion of Boom defenses. He played nine years and 125 games for the Seahawks, totaling 28 interceptions, seven Pro Bowls and three All-Pro selections. Thomas’ penchant for making clutch stops played a huge role in the team’s defensive dominance from 2012-2015.

After falling out with coach Pete Carroll over his contract and famously giving him the finger as he was carted off the field in Arizona, Thomas was released and landed in Baltimore. He didn’t last long there, though. He only played one season in a Ravens uniform and was released the following offseason after reportedly punching one of his teammates.

Thomas hasn’t played in the league since 2019. He turns 33 in May.
