Colts signed CB Josh Thomas.
CB Eric Patterson has been waived in a corresponding roster move. With injuries all over the secondary, the Colts need a warm body at corner. Thomas has made 43 career appearances, including 10 starts. Of course, he was on the open market in mid-September for a reason. The Colts will be in trouble if Thomas has to play real snaps.

Vikings signed CB Josh Thomas.

Thomas appeared in five games between Seattle, the Jets, and Detroit last year. He played the first three seasons of his career in Carolina, making 10 starts. Thomas adds depth to Minnesota's secondary with Josh Robinson sidelined and Jabari Price suspended the first two games.

Jets signed CB Josh Thomas.

Thomas will take Dee Milliner's (Achilles') roster spot. He'll contribute on special teams, and bring up the rear of New York's shoddy cornerback corps.

Seahawks waived CB Josh Thomas.

Thomas appeared in three games with Seattle. The Seahawks signed C Patrick Lewis in a corresponding move.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 05:38:00 PM

Seahawks signed CB Josh Thomas.

Thomas started ten games for the Panthers the previous two seasons, but was part of Carolina's final cuts. The former fifth-round pick takes the roster spot of CB Jeremy Lane, who was placed on short-term I.R. Monday.

Panthers waived/released CB Josh Thomas, RB Darrin Reaves, CB Carrington Byndom, OG Derek Dennis, CB James Dockery, LB Adarius Glanton, WR Marcus Lucas, OT Andrew McDonald, S Tom Nelson, DT Drake Nevis, LB D.J. Smith, DT Casey Walker, FB Mike Zordich, OT Kevin Hughes, TE Mike McNeill, DT Micanor Regis, and S Anderson Russell.

A 2011 fifth-round pick, Thomas lost out to Josh Norman for the No. 5 corner job. He started 10 games for the Panthers the last two seasons, and will look to add depth with another team. Reaves is a prime candidate for the practice squad.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 04:13:00 PM

Panthers CB Josh Thomas (illness) is inactive for Thursday night's Week 8 game against the Bucs.

With Thomas dealing with an illness and performance-related issues, undrafted rookie Melvin White will make his first career start opposite Captain Munnerlyn. Also inactive for the Panthers are DT Dwan Edwards, WR Marvin McNutt, RB Armond Smith, WR Tavarres King, TE Brandon Williams, and DT Sione Fua. Steve Smith (probable, ankle) and Brandon LaFell (knee) are active, as expected.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 07:13:00 PM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he hasn't decided whether CB Josh Thomas will start in Thursday's night game against the Bucs.

Thomas was benched in the second half of Week 7 after getting beat twice deep. He'll likely be replaced by undrafted rookie Melvin White in the starting lineup and limited to a sub-package role this week. Thomas has struggled in pass coverage this season, but is currently the No. 6 corner in run support by Pro Football Focus. Perhaps the Panthers should consider a move to safety.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 02:23:00 PM

Panthers CB Josh Thomas was benched during the second half of the Week 7 win over the Rams.

Thomas got beat twice on long balls, although one was called back by penalty. He was replaced by a combination of undrafted rookie Melvin White and veteran Drayton Florence. Thomas is ProFootballFocus' No. 85 corner in terms of pass coverage this season.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 09:13:00 AM

Panthers LCB Josh Thomas has been medically cleared from his Week 3 concussion.

Thomas got healthy during Carolina's Week 4 bye. It's good news for opposing passing games because Thomas has been getting lit up consistently in coverage.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 01:22:00 PM

Panthers LCB Josh Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

The Panthers are so thin at cornerback that we're not even sure whom they're going to start against the Giants. Eli Manning has a terrific Week 3 matchup.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 03:34:00 PM

Panthers CB Josh Thomas left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Bills with a head injury.

Thomas was involved in a collision with Robert Woods and is being evaluated for a possible concussion. His return is questionable. Josh Norman will replace him at left cornerback.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 01:49:00 PM

Panthers CB Josh Thomas took the majority of minicamp reps with the first-team defense.

With Captain Munnerlyn sidelined, Thomas has been the No. 2 corner behind Josh Norman. The Panthers did very little to improve their secondary this offseason. Free agent pickup Drayton Florence is expected to see significant playing time in sub-defenses.
Fri, Jun 14, 2013 11:03:00 AM

The Charlotte Observer expects Josh Thomas to play behind Josh Norman this season.

Norman struggled as a fifth-round rookie last season, ending up benched in favor of Thomas to close out the year. But he has significantly more upside and has been talked up relentlessly by GM Dave Gettleman. Regardless, the Panthers' secondary is going to be one for fantasy owners to exploit once again. A cornerback quartet of Norman, Drayton Florence, Captain Munnerlyn and Thomas just isn't going to cut it.
Tue, Apr 30, 2013 11:53:00 AM

Panthers claimed CB Josh Thomas off waivers from the Cowboys.

A fifth-round pick out of the University at Buffalo, Thomas is an interesting developmental project as a physical corner with 4.43 forty speed. He could have a future as a nickel back.
