Excerpt: "After months of waiting for a call that just wouldn’t come, Marcus Thomas eventually told his agent not to ring his phone unless he was notifying him about a job opportunity.
That call came earlier this month. Thomas answered it. He did not say hello.

“Where am I going?” the veteran defensive tackle, who was training in Florida, immediately asked.

To East Rutherford, where the Giants were suddenly enduring a run of injury issues in the middle of their defensive line. Thomas arrived here last week, impressed the team in a workout, passed a physical and signed a one-year deal for the veteran-minimum salary of $700,000." Read more...

one year deal for 700,000. thats better value than i thought this guy was going to cost. i guess not getting the money he wanted fro denver and being released humbled him enough to take what he can get. hopefully this motivates him to be a force on the D-line; playing for that big check at the end of the year.

I guess this is the official announcement which probably partially explains why we had not heard much since the news broke last week.
