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.
