Apparently Devin Thomas’ departure from D.C. wasn’t quite as drastic as we all first believed. Picked up by Carolina after he was waived by Washington, Thomas was unable to catch on with Panthers and according to The Washington Post has once again been fired.
It appears as if head coach Mike Shanahan and GM Bruce Allen may be vindicated after Thomas was unable to prove himself in Charlotte.
Thomas made a name for himself originally as Washington’s top draft choice in 2008. The Redskins lost faith in Thomas as a Wide Receiver in 2010 and briefly experimented using him as a kickoff returner. When that failed, Thomas was placed on waivers.
Unable to make a name for himself on the field, Thomas gained notoriety recently after appearing in a music video of former American Idol winner Fantasia. Apparently Devin is quite popular with the ladies and will be able to fall back on his sexiness if he decides to hang up the cleats for good.
I took the following video of Thomas at Redskins training camp earlier this year. Take a gander at the comments from viewers. Let’s just say its pretty obvious who his fans are. Enjoy!
