New York Giants Sign Defensive Tackle Marcus Thomas

The New York Giants have signed free agent defensive tackle and ex-Bronco Marcus Thomas to a one year deal, as it was reported earlier Thursday. This signing allows the G Men to fill the void of Shaun Rogers' season-ending injury of suffering from a blood clot in his leg.

The gGiants waived Montclair State's Bobby Skinner to make room for Thomas on the roster. Skinner's signing had just been announced Thursday morning, and he practiced only one time.

Thomas had a somewhat breakout season with the Broncos last season with 45 tackles (29 solo) in just 12 games. But the 26-year-old didn't get the deal he was expecting from Denver after the season, so here he is with the defending Super Bowl champions, adding depth to the defensive line.

This is the fourth defensive tackle the Giants have signed in two days. Thomas has the reputation of being a run-stuffer.
