Terrell Thomas: 'I Definitely Wanted To Come Back' To Giants

Terrell Thomas, who agreed to a new contract with the New York Giants on Tuesday morning, said returning to the Giants rather than hitting the free-agent market was always his wish.

"I definitely wanted to come back here – this is home for me," Thomas said after signing his contract. "Coming off an injury, it’s better to come back to the same team – you know the personnel and the staff and they know you. You know the defense. My first choice was here, but I did open my eyes a little bit to free agency in case the Giants didn’t re-sign me. So I’m happy to be back."


Report: Thomas' Contract is Four Years, $28 Million

Thomas missed all of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the second time he has suffered that injury. He expects to be ready for training camp.

"There’s no rush for me," he said. "I’m proven here. They know who I am and what I can do on the field. There’s no rush for me to get out on the field. My biggest thing is to let my knee heal 100 percent and come training camp and the season I have no setbacks or missed practices because of swelling. But I’ll definitely get out there and maybe do some individual drills"
