  Jaguars | Devin Thomas worked out    Wed Aug 7, 01:51 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars worked out free-agent WR Devin Thomas (Lions) Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Thomas was cut by the Lions earlier this week. If added to the Jaguars roster he would only be in line to contribute as an end of the bench WR and special teams player.

  Bears | Two WRs expected to compete for one roster spot    Wed Jun 6, 03:29 PM

Chicago Bears WRs Dane Sanzenbacher and Devin Thomas are expected to compete for one roster spot during training camp because the team is not expected to have seven receivers on their final roster.

Footballguys view: Thomas was a second-round pick by the Redskins back in 2008 but has failed to play up to his potential as a pro. We like Sanzenbacker in this competition because he's got strong hands and is not afraid to run routes over the middle.

  Bears | Like Devin Thomas as a special teams player     Thu Mar 29, 09:07 AM

Chicago Bears WR Devin Thomas' special teams contributions were appealing to the team, who lost two key special teams players in CBs Corey Graham and Zackary Bowman. Thomas recovered two fumbles last year on special teams and made eight special teams tackles overall.

Footballguys view: Thomas also gives them much needed size at the WR position, even though we're not expecting much from him as a pass catcher.

  Giants | Devin Thomas can be better in kick return game    Sat Oct 22, 09:04 PM

New York Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn thinks WR Devin Thomas can be a lot better in the kick return game. 'Too many muffs. He's got to start catching the ball cleaner,' Quinn said. 'I think all returners, they want to bring every ball out. Sometimes he needs to keep it in the end zone so we don't put our offense in a negative situation.'

  Giants | Devin Thomas impresses on kickoffs    Tue Aug 23, 12:12 AM

New York Giants WR Devin Thomas had kick returns of 33, 73 and 32 yards in the first half of the preseason game Monday, Aug. 22, against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Thomas will have trouble making the Giants because of their depth at wide receiver, even with the loss of Steve Smith in free agency. His kick return skills are nice, but they are becoming increasingly irrelevant with the new rule change that moved the ball to the 35. He's basically a journeyman at this point.

Footballguys view: It's a sign that Thomas may not be as committed as he needs to be if a team like the Rams is telling him 'no thanks.' St. Louis desperately needs to add another receiver to the roster after Mark Clayton was lost for the season yesterday.

  Redskins | Devin Thomas on the bubble?    Wed Sep 1, 06:31 PM

Washington Redskins WR Devin Thomas was in a good position to make the final roster cuts, Saturday, Sept. 4, but he has yet to be told he'll make the team, reports The Washington Post's Jason Reid. In the team's third preseason game Friday Aug. 27, when starters typically play more, Thomas didn't play a single snap as a receiver. Head coach Mike Shanahan said he wasn't able to spread the ball around enough to get Thomas in, and he wanted to wait until the team's final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 2, to see him. Thomas has four catches for 78 yards this preseason and is one of only two Washington receivers that have caught a touchdown pass.

Footballguys view: It's beginning to look like the Skins rolled snake eyes twice at wide receiver in the second round of the 2008 draft. Thomas still has great upside if he can get it together, but he might not even have a job come week 1. We still expect he'll get picked up quickly if he gets cut.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said WR Devin Thomas will see a lot of playing time in the team's final preseason game, reports Gary Fitzgerald, of Redskins.com.

Footballguys view: Devin Thomas needs to start proving himself at the pro level because 'potential' will only take you so far. Other receivers like Anthony Armstrong are making a big impression but Thomas and Malcolm Kelly really need to prove their worth.

  Redskins | Devin Thomas finds end zone    Sat Aug 14, 12:40 AM

Washington Redskins WR Devin Thomas had three receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown in preseason action against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 13.
