Giants keep Terrell Thomas in place

Like many good teams, the New York Giants kicked off free agency by getting some work done from within.

The Giants reached an agreement with cornerback Terrell Thomas, who missed the entire Super Bowl season after suffering a torn ACL in the preseason in a game against the Chicago Bears. The deal was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

A second-round draft pick in 2008, Thomas was poised to have a big year heading toward free agency but it didn’t materialize for him. The hope is that he will be ready for the start of the season. With Thomas back in the mix, the Giants are expected to bid goodbye to Aaron Ross, who will become an unrestricted free agent at 4 p.m. EST.
