04/05/12 - WR Devin Thomas has never lived up to the hype since being drafted early in the second round (34th overall) by the Redskins in 2008, but he's still just 25, and he's getting a fresh start with the Bears.
In four NFL seasons with the Redskins (2008-10), Panthers (2010) and Giants (2010-11), he's caught just 43 passes for 482 yards and three touchdowns.
The 6-1, 221-pounder won a Super Bowl ring with the Giants last season, and he has been a major contributor on special teams as a kickoff returner and covering kicks. He recovered two fumbles in the NFC Championship Game, including one that set up the game-winning field goal in overtime.
"I really feel good about him, adding to our wideout depth and being a special teams player," Bears general manager Phil Emery said. "We think that maybe he's at a spot in his career where he's ready to move forward. I think he sees this as a great opportunity to move forward in his career; get more involved, get more catches."
