According to Fox (msn.foxsports.com), Anthony Thomas has signed a one year deal to be the Cowboys change of pace and third down back. We'll see if he can deal with Tuna, or if his career is pretty much over.

Personally, I'm betting on the "over" part.

I still think he could be a pretty useful back in the right system. I'm not sure the Cowboys are that system or not.

Ditto. He is done. Barber III will be there change of pace back.

I don't get it...Thomas put up good numbers in the bit of playing time he had last year, and certainly looked better than Thomas Jones, who for whatever reason some people in the NFL still think is going to make it big. Employing him as a third down back is somewhat questionable, though, since he's more of a smashmouth style player.

Bah, A-Train was always a quite good player when running behind a line not demolished by injury. He's peformed well with every opportunity he's been given and there's no reason not to expect him to perform well again, as he is still quite young.

Personally, I find the Bears to be idiots for giving him up. They just got a good receiver to go along with Booker, and keeping the one running back that has proven himself would obviously have made too much sense. *sigh* Being a Chicago sports fan is so darn hard sometimes.

He's not done in the NFL. He rushes for almost 4 yards a carry, fumbles rarely, and had 1,000 yard seasons in two of his first three years.

Plus, he hasn't exactly played with a cavalcade of all-stars at QB: Jim Miller, Kordell Stewart, Chris Chandler, Rex Grossman, Jonathan Quinn, Craig Krenzel... these guys could barely thrive on an XFL team, let alone an NFL one.

*smacks head against the desk*

I think I tried to forget that one, obviously. Okay, so we have one good receiver. And Gage, yeah.

As concerns Grossman, I would wait till he plays a full healthy season before we judge him. I think he has the potential to be a good QB. Maybe not great, but good.
