Giants Re-sign Injury Plagued Terrell Thomas
The New York Giants have re-signed Terrell Thomas for 2013 season after the cornerback missed all of the last two seasons due to injury.
Thomas tore his ACL in a pre-season game in August 2011, and missed the entire year. In 2012, Thomas re-injured the same knee in pre-season action and was placed in Injured Reserve, effectively ending his 2012 campaign.
Thomas, now 28, tells Giants.com:
“At this point, I don’t care if they move me to kicker,” Thomas said today. “I just want to play football.”
In his first three years with the Giants, Thomas proved to be a defensive playmaker, making 11 interceptions and forcing nine fumbles.
In 2010, Thomas played in all 16 games, with five interceptions and four forced fumbles. (His last game was in January of 2011, the final regular season game of the 2010 schedule).
Last season, the Giants secondary ranked 28th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (254.2).
