Earl Thomas could be cut by Ravens after wife pulled gun on him


Earl Thomas’ marriage is on the rocks and his job may be in jeopardy, too.

In the wake of his wife allegedly holding a gun to his head last month after she found him in bed with other women — and his brother Seth — the Ravens may be souring on the Pro Bowl safety. The Baltimore Sun reported the incident could violate his contract that isn’t up until 2022.

The Ravens, a source told the paper, weren’t thrilled with Thomas last year. They felt he freelanced too often, and he struggled with their defensive schemes, creating friction with teammates.

The 31-year-old still had a strong season, reaching his seventh Pro Bowl and started 15 games after injuries had limited him to 29 games the previous three years. He came to the Ravens on a four-year, $55 million deal that included $32 million guaranteed.

Thomas went viral this week after reports leaked of the April 13 event in which his wife, Nina, discovered his infidelities and held a gun to his head before he wrestled it away from her, cops say. When the police arrived, Nina was chasing Earl with a knife and he had the gun at that point.

“It’s really not anybody’s business. It pisses me off that [the story] got out,” the former Seahawk said in a since-deleted Instagram video. “Instead of talking about us, just keep us in y’all prayers.”

According to a Ravens spokesperson, the team was unaware of what happened until seeing the reports.
