After the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated at the hands of Earl Thomas and the Seattle Seahawks, safety Earl Thomas decided to run after Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett to lobby for the Dallas Cowboys to sign him if they can:
“If y’all have the chance, come get me,” Thomas said to Garrett, not so quietly as reporters waiting to enter the Cowboys locker room heard it.
It was a shocking moment, but it’s no surprise given the Seahawks internal issues this season despite the fact that the Seahawks are a Week 17 win and a Falcons loss away from clinching a playoff berth.
Thomas did himself no favors after reporters asked him about these bizarre comments once he made it to the Seahawks locker room:
“I went to the locker room to talk to Dez, and I saw coach Garrett,” Thomas said. “I’ve always been a Cowboys fan growing up. The biggest thing about when I said come get me is I don’t literally mean come get me now. I’m still in the prime of my career. I still want to be here. But when Seattle kicks me to the curb, please, the Cowboys, come get me. That’s the only other place I’d rather be If I was kicked to the curb. So that’s what I meant by it.
“People take life too serious. That’s just who I am.”

@Earl_Thomas two weeks in a row this man has opened his mouth and he looks like a fool both times. Smooth. Well done “leader”

Can you really blame Seahawks fans for being this angry?
Alex Ginsberg I wouldn’t want to play on team with Richard Sherman’s emotionally unstable ass Michael Bennett’s criminal behavior or a fanbase that can’t spell “traitor,” or in Seattle.
JuJu Tate I still can’t believe how the Seahawks & Falcons choked away their Super Bowl vs the Patriots. I will never get over it. We have to hear dumbasses call Brady the GOAT every week now bc of them.
Dylan James I hope the Seahawks fans know the difference between a trader and a traitor. Why would they be upset with Earl Thomas for wanting to buy and sell goods?
Zane Goose Bose He's from Texas and played at UT and grew up loving the Boys. Probably thinking when I'm done at Seattle come get me, I'd like to finish at home.
