Seahawks sign cornerback Terrell Thomas UPDATED

The Seahawks have beefed up the competition in their secondary by today signing veteran cornerback Terrell Thomas, a free agent who played most recently for the New York Giants and played in college at USC when Pete Carroll was coach.

The signing was first reported by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports and then confirmed later by Thomas himself:

It was also confirmed by Thomas’ agent, Doug Hendrickson:

(Interestingly, Hendrickson is also the agent for Marshawn Lynch).

Adan Caplan of ESPN reported it is a one-year deal for Thomas.

Thomas became a free agent after playing out a one-year deal he signed in 2013 with the Giants, a season in which he returned to play after having missed the previous two years with knee injuries (good detail on that here).

And here’s another a story on Thomas from June noting his efforts at signing again with a team after having had three ACL surgeries.

Thomas made 40 starts in four seasons for the Giants, missing the 2011 and 2012 seasons with knee injuries.

Thomas played mostly in the slot last season and the Seahawks could be looking for some veteran depth there at a spot where Jeremy Lane is the presumed starter. Another free agent signee, Phillip Adams, has usually been the backup there early in camp.

He said in January he hoped to be a starter this season.

Seattle would have to waive a player off of its 90-man roster to make room for Thomas.
