"Thank god," Thomas tweeted following his workout.
Thomas, a fourth-round pick of the Broncos in 2007, is a much more suitable long-term replacement than are Oren Wilson and Carlton Powell, who were also officially signed today. More than just a camp body, Thomas is a quality 4-3 defensive tackle with 34 career starts (76 games played), in which he's collected 146 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
The 6'3'', 316 lbs. Thomas struggled a bit in Josh McDaniels' 3-4 scheme (2009-2010), but showed his early career promise again when John Fox returned the team to a 4-3 (2011). However, after being offered only a one-year deal this offseason, Thomas decided it would be in his best interest to test the market, believing a better contract would come his way.
At one point last season, there were rumors that Thomas wanted out of Denver and one of his potential desired destinations was in New York with Big Blue. Match made.
