The safety even tweeted out during the game that the possibility of retirement was going through his head. A day after, he stated in a text that he was still considering calling it a career.
The five-time Pro Bowler had started the first 118 games of his career, including postseason, until he missed a game in Week 12 due to a hamstring injury.
Third-year player, Steven Terrell, will serve as Thomas's replacement for the remainder of the season. Seattle sits at 8-3-1 on the season thus far, and have three division matchups in their final four games.
