      ***. I'm getting pissed off. Thomas was great on special teams and can definitely play the #3.

          So does this mean Justin Tryon is the new gunner?

          Devin had so much team value...gunner, wr, returner. He only got a 1yr deal so I know it's not much. Wondering why the Giants let him go.

            Clearly the Bears signed him so that Thomas can spill the beans on our special teams schemes so that Devin Hester can get more punt return touchdowns.

              http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,2564456.story[/quote]Very good ST player for us. I think he might of had a chance this year to show up if he has ability. Problem was he had no QB in Wash, and in NY we were so deep he couldn't get a realistic chance.

              Maybe he will show something in Chicago. They only have Marshall now so he may have a shot at it. Jay is a good QB. If he didn't get injured and with that run game and defense they would have been in as the possible other wild card.

                Kind of sad to lose a player who played such a key role on ST last year.

                I was hoping Thomas would get some PT at the 4th WR or maybe battle for the 3rd role.

                Thomas clearly has good physical skills but with Hixon back, it looks like he became expendable.

                  a little surprised and a little disappointed, but hey its business.







                  He was valuable on ST and I too thought he could contribute more at WR this year, since Manningham was signed by San Fran.







                  But time for Jernigan to step up this year. And of course, the Giants may have their eyes on a few WR options somewhere in the draft.

                      Same here. I thought he'd be back.

                        On what do you base his being able to play "#3"?

                          What a shame, we lost a special team player who is once again going to be a back-up receiver and if he is fast enough, will be a gunner for them on ST.

                            Giants were likely only willing to pay him special team money if they were even trying to bring him back. Bears likely offered him special team/wide receiver money. He was valuable on special teams for us but he isn't irreplaceable.

                              I hope he has a great career. He was big in the postseason for us. I will always remember what he did in SF.
