Washington Waives WR Devin Thomas

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins have cut wide receiver Devin Thomas.

A second-round pick in the 2008 draft, Thomas will become a free agent if he clears waivers.

Thomas was the second receiver taken in the 2008 draft, which featured no first-round wideouts. The Rams selected Donnie Avery with the second pick in the second round (the first round had only 31 picks, due to the Spygate penalty), and the Redskins took Thomas in the next spot.

Still on the board was Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who went 15 spots (and five receivers) later, at No. 49. Two picks after that, the Redskins took receiver Malcolm Kelly, who also has been a major disappointment.

In two-plus seasons, Thomas caught 40 passes for 445 yards and three touchdowns. He had 11 starts with the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: 

Thomas has never been able to put it together. If he lands in the right situation, he could have value, but it's telling that the Redskins felt ancient Joey Galloway and journeyman Anthony Armstrong were better than him.
