Bobby Wagner of the Seattle Seahawks says that he now regrets how he handled comments that Earl Thomas made after the team’s loss Sunday. The linebacker said that the situation was a learning experience and blamed his in the moment emotions getting the better of him after a blowout loss to the Rams.
Wagner had a problem with Thomas telling reporters that he shouldn’t have played on his injured hamstring. Wagner tweeted out “keep my name out yo mouth” which he has since deleted.
Wagner said that he and Thomas have since spoken and “ironed things out like we always do.”
We’re focused on making sure we finished this season off right. We still have a lot out there left for us, and we’re excited to get back on the field.
Thomas has denied that any conversation has taken place.
Wasn’t no conversation. It is what it is. Let’s move on. How you feel, that’s how you feel.
The Seahawks are still in contention for a playoff spot but must win their final two games against the Cowboys and Cardinals if they hope to slip in. The team will need some outside help but if they lose this week in Dallas they can forget about playing in the postseason for a sixth straight year.
