Terrell Thomas was gone from the New York Giants' lineup a season ago, his year wrecked by a torn ACL suffered during a preseason game. The popular cornerback was never far from the hearts and minds of Giants' fans, however. Saturday, Thomas gave something back to his supporters.
Thomas handed out 2,400 free 'T2' T-shirts to fans who attended the team's Autograph Day practice at UAlbany.
"I just wanted to give back, it’s just a little small thank you to my fans for all the support they gave me last year that helped me get through my injury," Thomas said. "They always kept me a part of it, regardless of a win or loss. Stuff like ‘TT we need you out there, you’re never forgotten, you’re a part of the team.’ You kind of get lost in the shuffle when you’re hurt and some fans were just always there supporting me, week in and week out. We read our tweets and we interact with the fans a lot with social media, and my mom always taught me to be very thankful and always give back, so they’re just a small gesture.
If you weren't one of the lucky ones to get a free 'T2' shirt Saturday you can still order one from Thomas' website.
