The Jaguars have come to financial terms on a contract with free-agent offensive tackle Tra Thomas, 34, a three-time Pro-Bowler who made 165 starts with the Philadelphia Eagles. Thomas, from Florida State, immediately gives the Jaguars security at left tackle. Last year’s starter at left tackle, Khalif Barnes, is an unrestricted free agent.
A 12-year veteran, Thomas was the 11th overall pick of the 1998 draft. He will be presented by the Jaguars to the media on Monday. Jaguars.com will post a story from that availability later today.
All i can say is wow, BAP! This truly gives us a fixture for the year at LT and allows us to take the best player at our position in the draft, whether that be at 8 or trading down.
This makes it more likely that we may trade down for someone like Heyward- Bey, Harvin etc in my opinion, as we no longer have to stay at 8 to take the BAOT, having said that we may decide to stay where we are if we're in love with BJ Raji, or if Crabtree falls to us.
