Fred is a sure tackler. Sure he has lost speed to cover as corner but as just help as a Free Safety he has plenty. I don't think it is that uncommon for cornerbacks past their prime to move to free safety position and be very successful sometimes more so.

what do ya think?

Fred Thomas isn't on the field for a reason. He's done. He can't tackle any better than the younger talent trying to develop on the field. He took a pay cut just to be on the Roster, I don't think he'll be around after this season.
