Safety Earl Thomas’ free-agent circus is already nearing its end. Around a month after figuring in a heated altercation with fellow safety Chuck Clark, the 31-year old is close to agreeing to play for his hometown Houston Texans, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Thomas grew up in Orange, Texas, which is 118 miles from NRG Stadium. The safety made a name for himself with the Seattle Seahawks franchise where he played for nine years from 2010 to 2018. He garnered a total of six Pro Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl XLVIII ring during his tenure.

The safety was famously remembered for telling then-Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett to “come get me,” after having a sour ending to his partnership with the Seattle Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll back in 2018.

Thomas went on to sign with another contender in the Baltimore Ravens where he agreed on a four-year, $55 million contract last season. He tallied a total of 32 tackles and a career-high 2.0 sacks en route to grabbing his seventh trip to the Pro Bowl in 2019.

He will likely slot in the starting safety position for the Texans after safety A.J. Moore was sidelined due to a hamstring injury. His arrival will give a boost to the team’s defensive line which has yet to make an interception, one of only three teams not to have one through three weeks.

The Texans’ will be welcoming a much-needed depth, especially with Thomas’ veteran experience. With the potential acquisition, the team is aiming to get back on the winning track and bounce back from a 0-3 hole in the early stages of the season.
