Richard Sherman Believes Earl Thomas will Return


After breaking his leg on Sunday night, Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas was contemplating retirement.

It’s likely that was just said in the heat of the moment and his teammate Richard Sherman believes he will return.

“I expect him to come back,” cornerback Richard Sherman told reporters on Wednesday.

Sherman explained what Thomas brings to the defense.

“Just his energy,” Sherman said. “He’s a constant energy, it’s always infectious, he plays hard every snap. Just a guy that always where you need him.”

Will they make changes in scheme?

“[W]e’re running the same stuff we’ve been running,” Sherman said.

Seattle has their work cut out for them as they take on the suddenly surging Green Bay Packers this Sunday in Lambeau Field.
