Devin Thomas Retires: Former Giants Special Teamer Calls It Quits

One of the small but important pieces to the New York Giants Super Bowl run, wide receiver and special teams player Devin Thomas, decided to retire from football on Sunday. Thomas, who signed with the Chicago Bears in the offseason, announced his plans via Twitter.

Last season, Thomas was claimed off waivers by the Giants and made an impact on special teams. His biggest role in New York's Super Bowl run came in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers, where he recovered two fumbles in the contest. The last recovery came in overtime and helped setup the game-winning score.

In 2008, Thomas was drafted by the Washington Redskins. He spent two seasons in the nation's capital before signing with the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers then waived Thomas, who then signed with the Giants.
