In Case You Were Wondering: Hollis Thomas

Remember this big lug? Hollis Thomas played DT for the Eagles from 1996 through the 2005 season. Following the 2005 season Thomas signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Though never spectacular, Hollis was an above average DT for the Eagles. He posted career highs of 51 tackles and 5 sacks while with the Eagles.

Today it was announced that the New Orleans Saints have reached an injury settlement with Thomas, resulting in his release from injured reserve. Since the settlement was reached within five days after Thomas was placed on IR, he will be able to re-sign with the team later in the season.

I would fully expect Thomas to be back with the Saints this year. The Eagles are set at the DT position so no hopes of a return to Eagles green. Can't nobody replace Klecko!
