Washington Post: Rookie Devin Thomas has not endeared himself to
coaches and teammates with his attitude and work ethic. With a
swagger that was not backed up by his play, he did not do enough
to get himself physically and mentally ready to play, and many in
the organization wonder if he ever will. He could be surly, he
enjoyed the nightlife and he never made any real strides toward
becoming a regular part of the offense. He continually ran poor
routes - often three yards or more too deep or too shallow - which
is a massive difference in an intricate precision system. He
didn't do nearly enough to earn the confidence of the
quarterbacks. He was drafted to be the bigger, deep threat to
complement Moss on the opposite side, replacing Brandon Lloyd, and
ended up being similar to Lloyd in far too many ways. Thomas has
already talked about the need to get away from football for a
while, which, for as little as he played, is alarming. He needs to
work his tail off all offseason to be ready to help this team.
