Hollis Thomas News


Hollis Thomas (born January 10, 1974 in Abilene, Texas) is an American football defensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League as an undrafted free agent in 1996 and also played three years for the New Orleans Saints. He played college football at Northern Illinois.

When healthy, Thomas was considered an important part of the Saints' defense, especially against running plays, and he was seen as playing a key role in the Saints' successful 2006 season, when they reached the NFC championship game for the first time in their history.

On December 5, 2006 Thomas was suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the league's steroids policy. In Thomas' appeal, New Orleans team doctor John Amos said that Thomas' asthma medicine contained two steroids, creating a false positive. Thomas lost the appeal.
