“I know my agent will talk to them, and if they come back with something that’s extremely favorable, I’d sign it,” Thomas said. “But more than likely, I’m going to hit the market. I feel I owe it to myself, and I think the Giants understand that and would agree.”
Thomas, 29, returned from back-to-back torn ACLs in 2013 and manged to play in all 16 games for the Giants. He produced 67 tackles, one sack, one interception and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 52 cornerback in the league this season.
Graziano adds that there is a chance that Thomas could be back with the Giants next season, but they are expected to focus their attention on signing other free agents before getting to him.
