Hedgecock To IR, Giants Claim Devin Thomas

From the Giants PR Dept:The Giants added another receiver today when they were awarded Devin Thomas off waivers from the Carolina Panthers.

Thomas, 6-1 and 220 pounds, played for both Washington (four games) and Carolina (one) this year, though he did not have a reception. But he has returned 15 kickoffs this year for 399 yards, a 26.6-yard average. The Giants' kickoff return average is 17.8 yards.

Thomas has played in 35 career games with 11 starts and has 40 catches for 445 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 35 kickoff returns for 838 yards, a 23.9-yard average, with a long return of 42 yards.

Thomas entered the NFL as a second-round draft choice by the Redskins in 2008 from Michigan State. As a rookie, he played in all 16 games with one start and caught 15 passes for 120 yards. Thomas had his best season in 2009, when he played in 15 games and finished with 25 receptions for 325 yards and all three of his touchdowns.

He was waived by the Redskins on Oct. 9 and awarded to Carolina two days later. The Panthers waived Thomas yesterday.

To make room on the roster for Thomas, the Giants placed fullback Madison Hedgecock on injured reserve. Hedgecock has not played since suffering a hamstring injury on Oct. 3 vs. Chicago.
