Giants claim Devin Thomas off waivers

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 24, 2010, 5:34 PM EST

2008 second-round pick Devin Thomas has been released by receiver-needy Redskins and Panthers this year, which isnít a great sign for his long-term football future.

His immediate prospects improved on Wednesday, though, when the Giants claimed Thomas off waivers from Carolina, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star Ledger. To open up a roster spot, the team placed fullback Madison Hedgecock on injured reserve.

With Steve Smith and Hakeem Nicks injured, players like Derek Hagan, Duke Calhoun, and Thomas will play significant roles against the Jaguars on Sunday.

Well maybe not a bad signing considering the Giants needs but putting Hedgecock on IR could come back to haunt us. Especially if he's actually healthy enough to play soon. We have zero depth behind Pascoe at fulback.

I agree Todd. Thomas could pay off if our coaching staff gets the best of him. Added motivation is our games coming up vs the Redskins.

I wish we would have picked up Owen Schmidt before the Eagles did when he was release from the Seahawks. I like the way he plays fullback.
