The Legion of Boom has terrorized the NFL for the last three seasons. But are they about to lose a key piece?
Dang, I walk into the house and the first thing I see is @Earl_Thomas being carted off. That hearts my heart to see. Prayers going up

Star defender Earl Thomas exited the game against the Carolina Panthers on a cart, and took to Twitter quickly after.
This game has been so good to me no regrets.. A lot is running through my mind including retirement thanks for all the prayers.

Thomas seemed to signal that he was potentially eyeing retirement, which would be a big blow to the Seahawks going forward.
The Eagles are likely to pursue a reunion with Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson during the offseason. https://t.co/uJSTIDIPif

Thomas has dealt with a fair share of injuries, and it’s easy to see why he may choose to hang it up. Still, the loss of Thomas would be big for Seattle, and would signal the end of a terrific NFL career.
