is this signing supposed to replace kassim osgood? i thought osgood did a nice job this season, definitely better than maurice stovall was in the same role. maybe thomas is just competition or an addition but he was a very good STer for the Giants



I think it's' more along the lines of replacing Logan. He was horrible, and he'll be a tenured 5 year vet (going into his 6th season I believe)... The minimum salary for a vet is around $1 million, I think. I believe he's a cheaper, better alternative that doesn't cost us a draft pick.

Maybe he was a prior "wish list" player of our new ST guy? Or maybe he's just going to save us some coin. Either way, I welcome his presence, esp. if it means we're finally done with Logan.



Thomas is better on kick coverage than as a return man



I totally understand that, but IMO this team is dying to replace Logan (see the Mike Thomas trade), but for whatever reason, they haven't been able to do it yet.



They should be dying to replace Logan but they havent shown much motivation to do so, failing to switch gears until week 17. maybe Devin Thomas will get a shot to return some kicks but I think they re going to have to find someone better to be the return man.



Can we just draft young for a return man, please?
