NFL Rumors: Terrell Thomas visits Carolina Panthers

New York Giants’ free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas has not had a lot of interest during free agency, even from his own team, but should begin to get more attention now that nearly all of of the big impact free agents have signed.

The cornerback position has been in demand, so that could put Thomas in good shape going forward.

Thomas has already visited Oakland to meet with the Raiders and according to Howard Blazer, Thomas has visited with the Carolina Panthers.


The Panthers have been hit hard in free agency, especially in the secondary (and at wide receiver, too), so giving Thomas a look makes a lot of sense.

Thomas was originally selected by the Giants with the 63rd overall pick in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. After playing in 12 games a rookie, Thomas played in all 32 games over the 2009 and 2010 seasons and had five interceptions in each season.

His promising career was derailed when he tore his ACLin 2011 and missed both the 2011 and 2012 seasons after reinjuring his knee.

Last season, he played in all 16 games and had 67 tackles and one interception.
