Former Giant CB Terrell Thomas, who successfully returned to the field in 2013 after missing two seasons to ACL tears, may have played his last game in the NFL.
In a radio interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, free agent CB Terrell Thomas said teams are concerned about his surgically-repaired knee.
Back-to-back tears of the same ACL sidelined Thomas for 2011 and 2012, but he came back last season to play 588 solid snaps for the Giants. In the interview, Thomas cited his healthy 2013 season as proof he can stay on the field and be a solid contributor on defense. NFL teams might not be so optimistic, but Thomas will almost surely find a job once injuries start to mount in training camp. A possible landing spot could be Detroit, who worked out Thomas at the end of May and recently cut ties with free agent CB Chris Houston.
Thomas was selected by the Giants in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft (63rd overall) and after an injury-marred rookie season, went on to lead the Giants in tackles the next two seasons. Although Thomas was one of Big Blue’s most productive players the past few seasons, he did not participate in either of the team’s Super Bowl victories.
