Sherman backs Thomas after Ravens release


Following a fight at practice which led to the Ravens releasing him a few days later, Earl Thomas got some support from a former teammate as he looks for his next NFL team. 

49ers cornerback Richard Sherman took to Twitter to wish Thomas the best and explain why he's excited to see what the seven-time Pro-Bowler will do next. 

"It’s really sad how things have played out for a man who is like a brother to me," Sherman wrote. "Just know that when [Earl Thomas] gets back on the grass he will be out to make a point! Still one of the best in this league and I look forward to him being able to prove it again."


Sherman and Thomas were one-half of the "Legion of Boom" in Seattle for six years, leading the Seahawks to a Super Bowl in 2013 and a consistently stifling defense in the NFC West. 

Both players have found success in other cities, but Thomas' run with the Ravens ended before he could help them reach their ultimate goal. Sherman came close to his second Super Bowl ring last season with the 49ers. 

Now we wait for Thomas to find another NFL home, and while the Cowboys are expected to be "very interested" in the free safety, the 49ers haven't been ruled out as a destination either. Could there be a "Legion of Boom" reunion in San Francisco? It's hard to imagine the Seahawks would be particularly thrilled with that in their division.
