Earl Thomas: Files grievance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas filed a grievance against the Ravens after his contract was terminated in August, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Thomas had an on-field confrontation with teammate Chuck Clark in August, and the Ravens cut him, citing "personal conduct that has adversely affected the Ravens." The guaranteed $10 million in Thomas' contract then became void, and it appears that's what the All-Pro safety is seeking in his grievance. Thomas came close to signing in Houston earlier this season, but he remains a free agent at this time.

Earl Thomas: Won't sign with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans won't host Thomas for a workout anymore, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports.

It appears the move could be related to the rising COVID-19 concerns around the league following multiple positive tests from the Titans, per Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle. However, McClain relayed that internal discussions decided that Thomas wasn't a good fit with the organization. The veteran safety was cut by the Ravens before Week 1 after getting into an altercation with fellow safety Chuck Clark, and he'll remain a free agent for the time being.

Earl Thomas: Could join Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas arrived in Houston on Monday for a workout, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle repotrs.

The Texans placed A.J. Moore (hamstring) on the injured list Monday, so it looks like there's legitimate interest in Thomas, who was released by the Ravens in August. One league source said there's a "strong chance" the Texans sign him if the audition and meetings with team officials go well. The Ravens cited personal conduct issues for releasing him, so the Texans will do their due diligence.

Earl Thomas: No interest from Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that the 49ers are not interested in pursuing Thomas as a free agent, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Thomas had his contract terminated Sunday, accompanied by a statement citing "personal conduct that has adversely affected the Baltimore Ravens." Though the 31-year-old didn't look his former All-Pro self in 2019, he returned value as a starter while notching 47 tackles and two interceptions across 15 games. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Cowboys are also not considering making a move for Thomas.

Earl Thomas: Released by Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens terminated Thomas' contract Sunday.

The team cited "personal conduct that has adversely affected the Baltimore Ravens" as the reason for the move. Thomas and teammate Chuck Clark were involved in an on-field altercation Friday, and the team has now elected to part ways with the seven-time Pro Bowler. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Cowboys, 49ers and Texans are among the teams that could look into signing Thomas.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Team moving on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens are set to part ways with Thomas, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the report, the Ravens will either release the safety for conduct detrimental to the team (after Thomas was involved in an on-field confrontation with teammate Chuck Clark) or trade him. Schefter suggests that Dallas is the leading contender to land Thomas if he's released. The seven-time Pro Bowler logged 47 tackles and two picks in 15 games for Baltimore last season.

Ravens' Earl Thomas III: Sent home by team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was sent home from practice Friday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Hensley also noted this is the second time in Thomas' tenure with the Ravens that the passionate safety got into a war of words with a teammate, perhaps alluding to some sort of rift between team and player. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network is reporting the Ravens are even considering releasing or trading Thomas after Friday's latest incident, although that type of over-reactionary language hasn't seeped into the discourse among Ravens beat writers. It's worth noting, Chuck Clark, the safety which Thomas reportedly got into an exchange of words with, is practicing Saturday so there's perhaps something amiss with this admittedly odd situation.

Ravens' Earl Thomas III: Active in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas had seven tackles and a sack in the Ravens' loss to the Titans in the AFC divisional round.

The veteran fell one tackle short of his season high and added the first postseason sack of his career when he came screaming off the edge to bring down Ryan Tannehill. Thomas had a reasonably successful first season as a Raven overall after missing most of 2018 due to a fractured tibia, finishing with 49 total tackles, two interceptions and two sacks while not missing a game due to injury. He'll enter 2020 on the second year of his four-year, $55 million deal.

Ravens' Earl Thomas III: Back at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee/hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Thomas sat out Tuesday's practice for non-injury reasons, and he's now resumed participating without any limitations. The veteran safety is on track to play his usual every-down role in Baltimore's secondary during Saturday's divisional-round tilt against the Titans.

Ravens' Earl Thomas III: On track for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee/hand) didn't participate at Tuesday's practice for non-injury reasons.

The veteran safety sat out Week 17 with knee and hand issues since the Ravens already locked up the top seed in the AFC, but those injuries are no longer listed on the injury report. Thomas figures to retake the practice field later in the week, but barring a setback his availability for Saturday isn't in question.

Ravens' Earl Thomas III: Sitting out Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee/hand) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Thomas didn't practice all week, but he wasn't expected to play anyway with the Ravens locking up the top seed in the AFC. Jordan Richards is expected to start at free safety in Thomas' place. At this point, there doesn't appear to be any major concern about Thomas' ability to play in the Ravens' first playoff game.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers.

This news is a bit surprising, especially considering coach John Harbaugh had originally stated that Thomas would sit out Week 17. Despite the questionable tag, it's likely that the Pro Bowler will be rested, leaving Jordan Richards to handle free safety duties Sunday.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Sitting Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Harbaugh said Thomas won't play Sunday against the Steelers since the Ravens after already secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Lamar Jackson, Marshal Yanda and Brandon Williams will also take a seat for the regular-season finale. The veteran safety finishes up his first season in Baltimore with 49 tackles (32 solo) 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Active for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is active for the team's Week 10 contest against the Bengals.

After a big performance in Week 9 against the Patriots, Thomas was unable to participate in Friday's practice with both "knee" and "non-injury-related" designations. However, he's ready to go Sunday against the Bengals and should be ready to make a major impact squaring off against rookie Ryan Finley in his NFL debut.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Questionable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Bengals.

Thomas did not participate in Friday's practice. The veteran safety sports both "knee" and "not injury-related" designations, making his chances of suiting up difficult to discern. In the event that Thomas is forced to miss any time, Bennett Jackson and Anthony Levine will likely play increased roles on defense.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Picks off Brady
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas racked up three tackles (two solo), an interception and two passes defended in Sunday's win over New England.

Thomas finally got back into the interception category for his second of the season, as he picked off a deep overthrown pass by Tom Brady in the fourth quarter. The 27-year-old hasn't had the production he's used to yet this season, as he's accumulated just 27 tackles (17 solo) and four passes defended in eight games. He and the Ravens defense will face a great matchup next week against the Bengals, a game in which rookie Ryan Finley is expected to make his first career NFL start.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots.

Thomas carried a questionable tag into this contest, but he said Thursday he expected to play. He will indeed suit up and start at strong safety. Thomas has only missed a few defensive snaps all year, and he's averaging 3.4 stops per game.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Thomas said Thursday he expects to play against New England, but he was unable to avoid the questionable tag. The veteran safety finished the week as a limited practice participant and there's been no additional indication that he's in danger of missing Sunday's contest.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Expects to play vs. Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) said Thursday that he expects to suit up versus the Patriots on Sunday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Thomas was unable to participate in Wednesday's practice due to a knee issue. If the veteran is able to upgrade his level of participation during the week's final two practices, he'll be moving in the right direction to play Sunday night against New England.

Ravens' Earl Thomas: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas didn't participate at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

Thomas played every defensive snap in Sunday's win over the Seahawks and it's unclear when he actually sustained the injury. The veteran safety will likely need to put in a limited practice by Friday to have a legitimate chance of suiting up Week 9.
