I've always liked Thomas as a fill-in player when either Freeney or Mathis need a breather. Solid work ethic, too.
Veteran Defensive End Re-Signs With Colts
INDIANAPOLIS – Josh Thomas has been one of the Colts’ most reliable, productive reserves the past three seasons.
On Tuesday, Thomas and the Colts ensured that will remain so.
Thomas, a fourth-year veteran defensive end who became a restricted free agent following this past season, has re-signed with the Colts, the club announced on Tuesday afternoon.
Duration and terms were not disclosed.
Thomas, who signed with the Colts as a free agent shortly after the 2004 NFL Draft from Syracuse
University, has played in 37 games the past three seasons, including two during the 2005 season as a starter.
He played in 11 games as a rookie in 2004, registering one sack, before missing the last five regular-season games and the postseason with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Thomas returned the following season to play 12 games, registering a career-high three sacks.
This past season, Thomas played 14 games and made a career-high 35 tackles with one sack. He also played in all four postseason games, registering two tackles and a sack.
