Like Vernon, Thomas will be a replacement player. He will take the spot of Cory Littleton, the Los Angeles Rams linebacker who will be participating in the Super Bowl. Safety Landon Collins was named to the team but will not participate due to having undergone shoulder surgery.
Thomas came to the Giants after five seasons with the Miami Dolphins. This will be his first Pro Bowl appearance.
