Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called Earl Thomas' "come get me" comment "unfortunate," but otherwise didn't express much concern about what his All-Pro free safety did after the team's win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Thomas was heading into the Cowboys' locker room to talk with wide receiver Dez Bryant, a close friend, when he urged Jason Garrett to acquire him if he were to ever become available, telling the coach, "If ya'll got a chance to come get me, come get me!" The exchange was seen on video captured by the Dallas Morning News and the NFL Network. "I'm up in arms," Carroll said sarcastically when asked about the incident during his weekly radio appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle. Carroll said he spoke with an incredulous Thomas after catching wind of what happened. "I sat with Earl afterwards and he was like, 'What do you mean?' He didn't think he did anything wrong at all. He didn't know," Carroll said. "He was just having fun and he was really excited about the game. He was a little bit [wanting to] rub it in a little bit and have a good time with it, and then he just said something into the future. When you read it, it comes across bad. But if he had another chance, he wouldn't say that again.
