Thomas spent six seasons with the New York Giants after being drafted by them in the second round of the 2008 draft, and he was able to help them win a Super Bowl in the 2011 season.
The cornerback came up with 235 tackles and 12 interceptions over the course of his career, but he had to battle three ACL tears.
However, he was able to play all 16 games in a rocky 2013 season where the Giants started 0-6 before finishing strongly with a 7-9 record.
After the 2013 season, Thomas was let go as a free agent before he signed with the Seattle Seahawks. However, he was unable to make the Seahawks’ final roster before Week 1 due to incredible depth at cornerback, and no team had signed him since.
He expressed disappointment in the abrupt end to his career. “I thought I had two more years. I thought I was about to be a top free agent and continue my career for two more years and show God’s grace,” Thomas said to NFL.com.
