    DOES DEVIN THOMAS HAVE A FUTURE WITH THE GIANTS?

    DOES DEVIN THOMAS HAVE A FUTURE WITH THE GIANTS?

    "New York
    Giants
    General Manager Jerry Reese likes to add blue collar players with
    something to prove to the bottom of his roster throughout the season. The
    conversation begins and ends with Chase
    Blackburn
    .

    He was set to teach grade school before he got a call from the Giants. A week
    later, he was intercepting Aaron Rodgers in a key week 13 matchup against the
    Green Bay Packers.




    Devin
    Thomas
    is another example of such a player who came in during the 2010
    season after being released by the Carolina Panthers and the Washington Redskins.




    He came in in against the Redskins in week 14 and recorded five tackles on
    special teams and downing several punts. Fast forward one season, and Thomas,
    once a highly touted second round pick out of Michigan State, was reduced to
    refining his special teams skills on a week to week basis. It paid off. He
    recovered a key fumble in the NFC Championship game against the San
    Francisco49ers that bounced off of returner Kyle Williams.




    Thomas was determined from day one this past season. He came into Eli
    Manning
    's passing camps at Bergen Catholic in extremely good shape and
    worked out with the quarterback each day he was there.




    In preseason, he returned a kickoff 70 yards against the Chicago Bears. He
    also had key returns against the Arizona Cardinals and a key 3rd down conversion
    against the Dallas Cowboys.




    Thomas has tried in every way he can to contribute and Giants management
    should take notice. Expect him to be re-signed this coming season and have a
    good chance at doing some damage on the receiver depth chart in the event that
    Mario
    Manningham
    departs."

    I think he has a real chance to replace MM. The guy is lighting quick. Always the first player down field on ST. Also if u noticed when the giants sent 4 WRs into the endzone on the hail Mary before halftime vs GB the fastest WR to the endzone was Devin
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    i think Devin can contribute again this coming season! after being drafted by the "deadskins" he needed some place to go where he could make a contribution!




    he hustles and made big plays int he nfc championship game! hes a good depth player and might even challenge for the #3 spot!
