The signing of Georgia Tech quarterback Justin Thomas was previously reported Monday.

What was unclear, however, surrounded the position the New Orleans Saints intended Thomas to play after he had a successful tryout at rookie minicamp, where he worked out as a wide receiver and defensive back.



Clarity arrived Tuesday on the NFL Transactions report, which reflects the Saints officially signed Thomas as a defensive back.

Thomas, who is listed as 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds on Georgia Tech's website, will make the transition from offense to defense.


An athletic player, Thomas posted a blistering 4.35 time in the 40-yard dash at Georgia Tech's Pro Day in March. He produced 2,163 yards of total offense (1,559 passing, 604 rushing) in his final season at Georgia Tech, adding 14 total touchdowns (eight passing, six rushing).

Re: Saints sign QB Justin Thomas

He'll be a DB like Devin Hester was a DB... Which means he's really only a kick returner.

If he's really like Hester, that'll be more than okay.

Shot I wouldn't mind seeing him play a lil O and being another gadget player for Payton. Obviously the kid knows how to get to the endzone......

I think the DB WR talk is a smoke screen. Meet the future QB of your New Orleans Saints!

Island sounds like a reach. Who knows it may work out and all other teams will try to copy the situation like they did with Graham.

This move gives a definitive answer as to who will replace Brees in 2020. Coupled with trading up to get Kamara, it's now becoming clear that we will be running the option flexbone next decade
