Texans players reportedly 'voted against' signing Earl Thomas originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
Former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is still without a job, and it doesn’t look like he is going to find a new one anytime soon.
According to Jason La Canfora and 710 ESPN radio, the Houston Texans' front office was interested in Thomas at one point, but the players themselves voted against bringing in the veteran safety to the team.

This offseason, Thomas was in two offseason altercations with his Baltimore Ravens teammates that led to his dismissal before the season started.
Since then, Thomas is still unemployed with a number of teams needing some help in the secondary.
The Texans are currently 0-4, and for the players to reportedly not want Thomas to be a part of their organization, sends off a very loud message.
Thomas is a near-guaranteed Hall of Fame safety, but his career after his Seahawks days has been a rollercoaster ride.
With still being a free agent looking for a home, only time will tell if an NFL team will add Thomas to their roster midway through the season.
