Bears sign Devin Thomas for one year

March 29, 2012 at 3:05 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, March 29 (UPI) -- The Chicago Bears have signed former New York Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas to a one-year contract.

Thomas, 25, was signed to the franchise amid wide receiver Johnny Knox' expected status on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list following spinal fusion surgery in December, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.

"I know I'm joining an organization that's legendary. That's the first thing that comes to mind, the tradition and the history," Thomas said on the team's Web site. "The team has shown so much promise and just needs a little bit more to get to the Super Bowl. I think they're putting the right pieces together. They have the right mentality to be right there. I'm looking forward to joining the team and adding to the success of the team.''

Thomas has 11 starts in 55 career games with the Washington Redskins, the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants. He has recorded 43 catches for 482 yards and three touchdowns.
