Seahawks Sign Cornerback Terrell Thomas
(1090 The Fan)– Veteran cornerback, Terrell Thomas, will be reunited with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
According to NFL.com, the free agent and Seattle have agreed to a contract.
Thomas, 29, played under Carroll from 2004 to 2007 while at USC. He spent his last six seasons with the New York Giants after being drafted by the team in 2008.
During the 2013 season, Thomas recorded one sack and one interception, which he returned for 65 yards. He also boasted 58 tackles, with nine assists.
Thomas’ athleticism has been, at times, overshadowed by a string of injuries. The cornerback has suffered three ACL tears — the earliest dating back to his time at USC.
Thomas confirmed the signing via Twitter:
Other defensive backs battling for a spot on the roster include Jeron Johnson, Dion Bailey, Phillip Adams, A.J. Jefferson, Jeremy Lane, Tharold Simon, Steven Terrell and Eric Pinkins (who is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a Lisfranc injury).
