Re: ESPN: Devin Thomas not secure until he's playing the 'Deadskins"

Thanks, thats good to know. But..... if a player has a no-trade clause in his contract can teams still make claims, or when he gets released does he immediately become a FA?

Also one thing ive never understood is why the vast majority of “premium” (regular starters with multiyear deals) NFL players dont ask for no-trade clauses, since trades occur so much less than other sports. Why wouldn’t a player want control of his own destiny, the reduced contract cant be that much for premium players. Any insight on that?

What a bum!

Yeah, he hasnt had one catch this year, hes solely a specialist that had his job taken away from him....

Whats crazy to me is whenever he got on the feild he looked like he really loved playing the game. Evven when he was on kick off (and maybe punt coverage) here he seemed to really enjoy it. You would imagine that a guy with all the physical tools and what seems like a desire would at least pan out a little bit. Maybe he hates practice and only works on game days.

With that type of attitude it's easy to see why he is more mouth than dedication. Actions speak louder than words and he has spoken loud and clear. He is a bust.

I guess he never figured out that route running thing, whatever that is.
