Earl Thomas‘ opinion of the Seattle Seahawks has not softened.

The Baltimore Ravens safety said it was “the best feeling in the world” after his new team beat his old team 30-16 Sunday, reports said.

Thomas left Seattle in free agency after his tenure as a Seahawks great came to a messy end. Thomas held out at the start of the 2018 season, wanting a new contract; shortly after he capitulated and returned to the team, he broke his leg in Week 4 and flipped off Seahawks coach Pete Carroll while being carted off the field, as his season — a contract year — abruptly ended.

Sunday was Thomas‘ first trip back to Seattle’s CenturyLink Field since he left the team.

“I definitely came in here with a purpose, and we got it done,” Thomas said.

Thomas was seen talking to people on the Seahawks’ sideline shortly after the Ravens’ Marcus Peters returned an interception for a touchdown. Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner then pushedThomas off toward the Ravens’ sideline.

“You knew I was going to say something,” Thomas said after the game. “I definitely said what I had to say. It was between me and them.”

Thomas did, however, exchange jerseys with Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson after the game, and the two reportedly have remained close.
