How fast do things change in free agency?
Last night we reported that there was “nothing imminent” in the negotiations between the Giants and Terrell Thomas and that the cornerback appeared to be heading towards the open market … unless there was a drastic change in negotiations.
Guess what. Drastic change. So drastic that Thomas signed with the team this morning.
“It’s a GREAT day to be a NEW YORK GIANT!” he Tweeted earlier today, signaling his return to the team he has played for the last four seasons. Well, three of the last four seasons. He missed all of last year with a torn ACL.
Terms of the deal are not yet available.
The addition of Thomas means that Aaron Ross, the former first-round pick, will almost assuredly sign elsewhere as a free agent. Then again, there’s always that “unless” caveat in free agency.
