No regrets.

Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas said he has no regrets for flipping off former coach Pete Carroll last season.

“I don’t regret my decision,” Thomas told ESPN in an interview published on Wednesday. “If my teammates felt like it was toward them, I regret that part. But I don’t regret doing that to Pete.”

Thomas, who was playing for the Seattle Seahawks at the time, made the gesture as he was being carted off the field with a broken leg during a Week 4 game against the Arizona Cardinals, an injury that required surgery and ended his season.


Thomas, 30, had 28 interceptions in 125 games with the Seahawks, ranking sixth in franchise history. He will face his former team in Seattle on 20 October, when the Ravens visit the Seahawks in Week 7.
