Yeah. But did you see him in that game against New Orleans in 2009? He was soooo awesome!

I've said it before, but one career highlight does not make a high round draft pick choice worth.

I will admit at the time though I thought DT was actually breaking out, and was going to finally prove he was worth a 2nd rounder. Instead, all we got was news of his disappointing work ethic holding him back.

I think that's a kind of joke that falls flat when someone has paid you a fortune to not produce. In football, you don't shoot off your mouth. PERIOD. If Mr. Thomas finds himself unemployed, will the redskins call, now? Even if we need help?

You just don't badmouth a former employer.....it's too small of a world for it to not come back and bite you.

Let Thomas keep talking. It's just more bulletin board material for the 'skins.

I have a feeling the Redskins aren't posting Devin Thomas comments inside the locker room.

That's if the bulletin board is for the super happy funny stuff.

Well im not sure if Devin felt secure after he played and lost to us in week one, but if he did his security may have been short lived:

Giants take kick-return duties away from Devin Thomas | ProFootballTalk

Also i wanted to ask this in the Fat Albert thread but it got closed; When a player is released and must clear waivers is he allowed speak to potential suiters during that time, or is that tampering of some sorts?

Tampering under the old rules. Think so under the new CBA rules as well

Funny, when I saw this thread get bumped, the first thing I thought when I clicked the link was, "did he get cut yet?" After looking at this post, I now think, "not yet, but it's just a matter of time."

What a bum!
