Six months after the Ravens terminated Earl Thomas III’s contract for what they deemed “personal conduct that has adversely affected” the team, and four months after the veteran safety’s grievance was filed on his behalf by the NFL Players’ Association, there has been no resolution to the dispute.
“That’s ongoing. There are some different moving parts. So, I’ll sort of answer that question like that, and just say that it’s ongoing,” DeCosta said Monday at his season-ending news conference.
The Ravens released Thomas in August, two days after a training camp fight with safety Chuck Clark. Thomas spent just one season in Baltimore after signing a four-year, $55 million deal in March 2019, including $32 million guaranteed.
