Seahawks agree to deal with CB Terrell Thomas

The Seahawks have agreed to terms on a deal with free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas. Thomas, as well as his agent, Doug Hendrickson, confirmed the signing via Twitter after it was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Caplan.

Thomas, 29, played for Pete Carroll at USC and was a second-round pick by the New York Giants in 2008. Thomas missed all of the 2011 and 2012 season with knee injuries—he tore his ACL in 2011, the re-injured the same knee the next year—but returned to play in all 16 games last year as New York’s nickel cornerback. Thomas, who is listed at 6-0, 191 pounds, had 67 tackles, one interception, one sack and one forced fumble last year.

The Seahawks currently have Jeremy Lane as their top nickel corner, but Thomas’ versatility—he was a starting cornerback in 2009 and 2010 before moving to the nickel spot following his injuries—could help him in the fight to earn a roster spot in a very deep secondary.

The Seahawks have not yet announced the signing or a corresponding move, but they were already at the roster limit of 90 players, so a cut will have to be made to get Thomas onto the roster.
