Earl Thomas' middle finger reportedly wasn't directed at one person.
"Thomas was frustrated that he didn't land his contract extension, wasn't traded by the Seahawks and had just fractured his leg for the second time in the past three seasons," Schefter added.
The 29-year-old is in the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Seahawks could always choose to sign Thomas to a franchise tag worth roughly $11.9 million, but Schefter reported they "are not expected" to do so.
While his season is over, Thomas should make a full recovery and be ready for 2019.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Thomas will have surgery this week to have a rod inserted into his fractured leg "that increases the chance of healing and lowers refracture rates."
