if Thomas is Plan B for the loss of Westerman and not being able to land Muamba in his place for ratio/salary...then we are in a world of trouble...We are better off using Corney in Thomas role in the middle...He is bigger ..faster..stronger and more athletic

Thomas may have a few "pounds" on him but it is doughie pounds

So what's up with that?  Thomas has been a pro since 2012 and he's still only 27, did he not buy into workouts necessary to improve his physique?

Id keep Okpalaugo and Jeffcoat and go with maybe pick up Justin Cole. Need a pass rush. Think theres is room  for more imports on the defensive front line.

That does nothing to help the ratio, they need another good Canuck, like Eddie Steele.

Steele and Thomas are pretty similar, if anything, Thomas had a better year last year, and is 2 years younger...

Because when he was in the lineup he was one of the best players on the =defense.

He's not even good enough to be on our PR, imo.

On a terrible defense... That's not saying much.

Chris Casher should get a good look this season. Okpalaugo, Jeffcoat, Roh, and Casher... That's a solid DE corps.

So what's up with that?  Thomas has been a pro since 2012 and he's still only 27, did he not buy into workouts necessary to improve his physique?

Thomas has an undersized frame for a DT, he has to pack on some extra pounds if he is even going to have a chance in the middle.  Even carrying extra weight, he's playing at 276 lbs against 300 lb OL.   IMHO, he has made the absolute most of the physical attributes he was given.   As a fourth round pick, he has been absolute gold for us.

But at the end of the day, he is at his ceiling.  And we have Ekakitie, who has greater physical tools, scheduled to earn more money this year and more the year after.  Something had to give....

It's not a weight issue, it's an athleticism issue. You always got 110% from him, but that was barely cutting it.
