Seahawks share cartoon tribute to Pete Carroll that leaves out Earl Thomas

The Seahawks shared a cartoon tribute to Pete Carroll last week on social media and then later deleted it. The cartoon includes a bunch of players from today’s team, including Bobby Wagner, Geno Smith, Devon Witherspoon, JSN, DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Quandre Diggs, Jason Myers and Nick Bellore.

There are also a bunch of legends from the Legion of Boom days, including Russell Wilson, Red Bryant, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin.

One face that isn’t included is that of three-time All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas, who was arguably the best player on an all-time great defense.

It was an ugly split between ET and the front office, but there’s no reason to erase him from history like this. Deleting it was the right call.

Update:

Welp, the team had shared the cartoon again. Still no Earl Thomas.
