New York Giants Schedule Visit With DT Marcus Thomas

After Shaun Rogers was lost for the season due to a blood clot in his leg, the New York Giants were left looking for another rotaional player to plug in on the defensive line.

Enter Marcus Thomas, an ex-Denver Bronco who could potentially fill the void left by Rogers. Thomas is scheduled to visit the Giants on Thursday, according to Ohm Youngmisuk via twitter.

At 26-years-old, Thomas has been very productive in his five-year NFL career. The Japan native had his best season to date in 2011, registering 45 tackles (29 solo) in just 12 games. In his five campaigns, Thomas has shown incredible durability, only missing four games (all in 2011).

Thomas only has one sack to his name, but his main focus is stuffing the run. In a division that features DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy, plugging the middle is vital for New York.
