Earl Thomas recently put word out to NFL teams that he wants to play next season, but his comeback attempt has hit a major roadblock. An arrest warrant was recently issued for Thomas stemming from multiple alleged violations of a protective order. The timing of those violations is troubling.

Thomas has been charged with a third-degree felony for “allegedly violating the protective order order two or more times within 12 months.” According to the Austin American-Statesman, Thomas allegedly sent threatening text messages to the mother of his children.

The warrant was issued on April 27, which was five days after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Thomas is looking to make an NFL comeback.
