Thomas plans comeback
By Ohm Youngmisuk
Jerry Reese said a couple of weeks ago that he had yet to talk to Terrell Thomas about whether the cornerback was attempting another comeback.
Thomas made it official by announcing his plans for a third comeback from an ACL surgery on his website.
"I know I have been MIA for a long time," Thomas wrote on his blog. "I just wanted to thank everyone for their continuing support. I am returning to football in 2013 hopefully with the Giants, but my contract is up this year but most likely, hopefully I will be re-signing with them."
The Giants signed Thomas to a four-year deal worth up to as much as $28 million in free agency last year but have a $6 million option in March to protect themselves in case of another injury. Still, they could re-sign Thomas to a new short-term deal.
Reese suggested that the cornerback might be better off moving to safety if he does attempt to play again.
A lot remains to be seen since Thomas has a long road ahead of him. But Thomas certainly knows as well as anybody what is ahead of him. And perhaps he could eventually help down the road later in the season in an unexpected pleasant surprise sort of way as an extra corner or safety.
The Giants are projected to have Corey Webster and Prince Amukamara as their starting corners. Webster is entering the final year of his deal. They also have last year's third-round pick Jayron Hosley as well but need more veteran help/depth at corner.
Tell us below what you think of Thomas making another comeback.
