On Sunday, Earl Thomas’ contract with the Baltimore Ravens was terminated due to his “personal conduct.”

“We have terminated S Earl Thomas’ contract for personal conduct that has adversely affected the Baltimore Ravens,” the Ravens tweeted.

This announcement is following an incident between Thomas and a fellow teammate during the Raven’s 2020 training at their campsite.

Chuck Clark and Thomas got into a fight on Friday, causing Thomas to be sent home. However, Thomas was told to stay at home during practice the following day as well, according to Bleacher Report.

According to NFL Network‘s reporter Tom Peliserro, the Friday fight “began with a mental error by Thomas.”

As ESPN’s Adam Schefter previously reported, the Ravens were thinking about terminating Thomas and the Dallas Cowboys were said to have an interest in signing him.

Other reporters like Ian Rapoport of NFL Network have reported that the San Francisco 49ers or the Houston Texans were watching out for the seven-time Pro Bowl, Super Bowl champion.

The decision to terminate Thomas, as told by Head coach John Harbaugh, was due to Thomas’ propensity for fighting at every training session.

“It just lasted longer than it needed to for me. You’re going to have these things in training camp. I think you’re going to have tempers flare, sure,” Harbaugh said. “But I don’t like them when they extend like that and eat into our reps, and we’re going to have to find out why and make sure that doesn’t happen.”

Thomas signed a contract to receive $10 million through 2022, according to Bleacher Report. However, his guaranteed salary could be voided pending a review of his conduct.
