Thomas, who has been on the Giants injured reserve roster throughout the 2011 and 2012 seasons, has struggled with a recurring ACL injury in his right knee since he first injured it while playing football in college at USC. The last regular season game that Thomas played as a Giants player was in the 2010 season finale on January 2, 2011. Thomas' new deal voids the $6 million option in his old contract, which the Giants were not going to pay since he injured his ACL again last year.
Reportedly Thomas' knee has been recovering well since his surgery last September and he is currently undergoing physical rehabilitation in Pensacola, Florida. He even began running last week without experiencing any pain or noticeable swelling in his knee. Thomas started his NFL career as a second round draft pick for the New York Giants in the 2008 NFL Draft. After tearing his ACL in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears in 2011, Thomas was placed on injured reserve. After re-injuring his ACL during training camp in 2012, he was returned to the injured reserve roster. Get your 2013 NY Giants game access with your very own Giants season tickets. With this latest contract, Terrell Thomas will have yet another opportunity to make his name as a New York Giants player, although it may not be as a cornerback. Giants general manager Jerry Reese has discussed the possibility of moving Thomas to safety, a position that would allow Thomas to maintain his physical style of play while also possibly helping to protect his vulnerable right knee.
