Former Giants CB Terrell Thomas announced his retirement from football.
With three ACL tears under his belt, doctors wouldn't give Thomas clearance to play again. The 2008 second-round pick spent most of his career with the Giants before landing a training camp invite with the Seahawks last summer. Knee injuries limited him to 60 appearances across six NFL seasons. Thomas had his best year in 2010, leading the Giants with five interceptions and 101 tackles. The USC alum won a Super Bowl with the G-Men in 2011. Feb 12 - 11:17 AM

He got beaten out by Jeremy Lane and Tharold Simon.

Seahawks signed CB Terrell Thomas.

Back-to-back tears of his right ACL cost Thomas all of 2011-12, but he rebounded to appear in all 16 games for the Giants last season, playing 588 snaps. Although he's not guaranteed a roster spot as he reunites with his college coach Pete Carroll, Thomas is in a good spot to provide veteran insurance for the Seahawks' Legion of Boom.

In a radio interview, free agent CB Terrell Thomas said teams are concerned about his surgically-repaired knee.

Back-to-back tears of the same ACL sidelined Thomas for 2011 and 2012, but he came back last season to play 588 solid snaps for the Giants. In the interview, Thomas cited his healthy 2013 season as proof he can stay on the field and be a solid contributor on defense. NFL teams might not be so optimistic, but Thomas will almost surely find a job once injuries start to mount in training camp. A possible landing spot could be Detroit, who worked out Thomas at the end of May and recently cut ties with free agent CB Chris Houston.

The Lions worked out free agent DB Terrell Thomas on Wednesday.

Thomas, 29, has worked out with or visited Detroit, New England, Carolina, and Oakland since the start of free agency. Although he is not a starting-caliber corner, Thomas can play multiple positions and be a valuable reserve.

The Patriots worked out free agent CB Terrell Thomas.

Thomas missed all of 2011-12 after suffering two separate ACL tears, but was able to play in 16 games for the Giants last season. At 29, he is not the player he was pre-injuries, but Thomas would offer a veteran option to bridge the gap caused by CB Brandon Browner's four-game suspension. This is the first interest he's generated since visiting the Panthers and Raiders in March.

Free agent CB Terrell Thomas visited the Panthers.

Thomas would be a cheap, veteran flier for the Panthers' under-construction secondary. Thomas visited the Raiders last week, but has otherwise drawn little interest. He's Rotoworld's No. 2 remaining corner.

The Giants have yet to make an offer to free agent CB Terrell Thomas.

Thomas visited with the Raiders this week, but hasn't drawn much interest. The Giants are fully expected to move on from him and have been linked to free agent CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. It's possible Thomas could return to New York on a team-friendly deal if he doesn't like the offers he receives on the open market. Thomas, 29, is Rotoworld's No. 4 remaining free-agent corner.

Free agent CB Terrell Thomas will visit the Raiders on Wednesday.

Thomas missed all of 2011-12 after suffering back-to-back ACL tears, but appeared in all 16 games last season. He played 588 snaps, notching one pick. Now 29 with an ominous injury history, Thomas shouldn't command much in the way of guaranteed money. He's the kind of veteran spare part Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has grown obsessed with.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 12:16:00 PM

Free agent CB Terrell Thomas plans to hit the open market.

"If [the Giants] come back with something that's extremely favorable, I'd sign it," Thomas said. "But more than likely, I'm going to hit the market." Thomas appeared in all 16 games in 2013 after missing the 2011 and 2012 seasons with back-to-back torn ACLs. He said after the season that he wants to be a starter in 2014. Thomas recently turned 29 and is our No. 13 free-agent corner.

Impending free agent CB Terrell Thomas wants to be a starter in 2014.

After missing the entire 2011 and 2012 seasons due to back-to-back torn ACLs, Thomas returned to appear in all 16 games as the Giants' nickel corner in 2013. He started seven of those games, making 67 tackles, one interception, and five pass breakups. "At the end of the day, whether it's at safety, corner, nickel, I want to start, 16 games, every game, contribute every game I can," Thomas said. "I want to get back to my old ways." Thomas turned 29 on Wednesday.

Giants DB Terrell Thomas (knee surgery) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

It's a good sign for a player coming back from his third torn ACL. Practicing at both corner and safety, Thomas hasn't appeared in a game since 2010.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 05:56:00 PM

Giants DB Terrell Thomas (knee surgery) says he's "pretty much back up to 100 percent."

Thomas was activated from the active/PUP list Tuesday, but he's going to be limited through the remainder of training camp as he tries to come back from a third torn right ACL. Coach Tom Coughlin initially declared Thomas a cornerback, before adding they'll use him "wherever we need him."

Giants activated DB Terrell Thomas (knee) from active/PUP.

He's practicing as a cornerback. Thomas is coming off his third ACL tear in his right knee. The Giants will likely try to work the former corner in for some reps at safety in an effort to reduce stress on the joint. Thomas is a long shot to contribute this season. He hasn't played since 2010.

Giants DB Terrell Thomas will be limited in training camp as he works back from his third ACL tear.

Thomas estimates he's "85-90 percent" healthy, and says he's willing to play any position in the defensive backfield. "I truly don’t care if I play corner, nickel or safety," he said. "As long as I am on field; I feel I can be very productive." The Giants should consider anything Thomas adds a bonus in 2013.
