Injury hit cornerback set to continue with Giants.
The New York Giants have confirmed that Terrell Thomas will return for the new season amid speculation that he was set to be released.
Thomas tore his right ACL in 2011 before suffering the same heartbreaking injury a year later during training camp. With doubts over his future, the 28-year-old will be relieved that the Giants have shown faith in him.
“I’m blessed and happy to have another opportunity to play football, especially with such a loyal organization, the one I started my career with. For them to give me another opportunity to prove myself, I feel very blessed,” he told the team’s official website.
It is believed that Thomas has agreed to re-structure his four-year deal, worth $28 million, which he signed back in March 2012, instead signing up for a one-year deal.
Reports also suggest that the Giants may look to convert him from cornerback to safety in a bit to help preserve his career considering the damage already suffered by his ACL.
However, Thomas will undoubtedly just be delighted that he will remain a Giant for at least another year, and will look to put his injury woes behind him and return to the field.
