New York Jets re-sign OLB Bryan Thomas
Just as free agency began the Jets re-signed their longest tenured player, Bryan Thomas. Thomas is a blue chip run defender. Coming off a season ending achilles tendon injury, it was up in the air if he would return. Thomas will be 33 before the season starts, and many thought he would be let go. The Jets signed him to a 1 year deal, allowing them to have a fall back option, and a locker room leader again this season at OLB. Thomas was drafted 22nd overall in 2002 by the New York Jets. Thomas had recently expressed his desire to return.
“I want to be able to play with one team my whole career; that’s my goal,” “Be with them, and have the Jets get to where we want to be, which is being able to play for the title. That’s the main goal. Hopefully I am back.” - OLB Bryan Thomas
