    Donald Thomas gone!

    Colts announce that they have signed Patriots G Donald Thomas. Played 48 percent of offensive snaps in 2012. Top reserve.

    Wonder if that means we are going to be looking at G in the draft now. We are pretty thin at G at this point

    Vollmer gets a deal then. Unless BB is thinking of picking up another T and moving Canon inside, I like

    Warmack

    Warford

    Winters

    Yep. Big loss. Overpaying for Mankins, now need a quality interior reserve. Nick McDonald is the only other option left.

     

    Once I saw Tenn overpay wildly for Levtire, I figured Thomas was gone.

    Stinks that they couldn't deal away Mankins to save some more cap space, but he's too old and pricey at this point.

     




    I just blame salary cap hell. The warnings were out people!!

    Hate to see losing a young promising player that the Pats had developed.

    Not good from the Pats. So far after day 1 they are weaker than last year. Only early days yet though

    Too bad, but not a loss they can't recover from.

    he stepped in to replace both Mankins and Connolly and the OL didn't miss a step. I'd say he was better then you think and the Colts appearently agree

    They have players who can play multiple spots along the line. He did a great job, perception greater because he was not expected to play that well by the avg fan because we do not get to see them practice and assume the drop off is always greater from starter to backup. Not unlike how well Connolly played filling in for Mankins prior to asscending to the starting RG spot.

    I've read they like him, but the guy was always a Tackle.  Interesting. They're still thin, though.  They're going to need to clip someone they like from another team's reserves and draft one.



    Who knows Zusevics could end up being our RT starter next year... (I doubt it). Too bad on Thomas, thought he could potentially be a starter here next year. I have faith they will bring up/or have an adequate replacement ready by the end of training camp
