With Thomas done, the Eagles are now focusing on Quintin Mikell and hope to have a deal done with him before free agency begins on Friday to keep him from having the chance to head elsewhere. Jeff Garcia is officially out of the picture and wide receiver Donte Stallworth is all but gone and isn't expected to receive an offer from the Eagles.
While not a starter, Thomas has played in all 32 games for the Eagles since signing with them as a free agent prior to the 2005 season. Thomas started his career with the Tennessee Titans, signing with them as a rookie free agent in 2001. This past season, Thomas finished second on the team with 10 hurries and a career-high 6 sacks.
Free agency begins on Friday and Mikell is the only other player that the Eagles are likely to sign before the free agent signing period begins.
