On Monday, the Detroit Lions decided to cut veteran wide receiver Mike Thomas.

It only took him one day to find a new job.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Thomas signed with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday.

After an excellent 2010 season with the Jackson Jaguars in which Thomas caught 66 balls for 820 yards and four touchdowns, Thomas has seen his production drop. The Jaguars decided to part ways with Thomas last season, trading the four-year veteran to the Lions in exchange for a fifth round pick. In seven games with the Jaguars in 2012, Thomas had just 13 receptions for 80 yards. His tenure with the Lions was even worse. Thomas caught only five passes for 28 yards.

Despite his recent struggles, Thomas has been productive in the past and could help a Cardinals team that struggled to get the ball down field last season (Of course, playing four different quarterbacks probably had a lot to do with that).

Thomas will join a wide receiver group that includes a future Hall of Famer in Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, who had a surprisingly productive 2012 and 2012 first round pick Michael Floyd, among others.
