New York Giants: Can Terrell Thomas Get Back in Form?
Terrell Thomas stepped back on the football field this past Saturday, for the first time in two years. This was a great sign for New York Giants fans who remember how great of a player he was before blowing out his right knee in each of the past two seasons.
Before the consecutive knee surgeries, Thomas was proving to be a Pro Bowl caliber player. He was far and away the Giants top cornerback in 2009 and 2010. In 2009 he led the team with 85 tackles. He also had one sack, one touchdown, five interceptions and one forced fumble. He followed that up in 2010 with 101 tackles, one sack, five interceptions and four forced fumbles. There is no defensive back that has been able to perform at that level since he went down with a torn right ACL in 2011.
Thomas is fighting for a position on the 53-man roster, and looks to have a great chance of making it. The question is can he return to form? If the past is any indication, it does not look good for the Giants. I look back to when Jason Sehorn played for the Giants. After he came back from a torn ACL he was never the same player. There were plenty of times that he got beat and got caught with his pants down!
I think Thomas will be able to make a difference this year for the defense if there is any resemblance to his previous years with the Giants. If not at corner there is a good chance that he could see some time at the nickel corner or safety positions.
