Former Giants CB Terrell Thomas retires

East Rutherford, NJ ( - Former New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas announced his retirement from the National Football League on Thursday.

Thomas did not play in the league last year after failing to make the Seattle Seahawks out of training camp.

The 30-year-old USC product played in 60 games with the Giants, and last did so in 2013 when he appeared all 16 games. He had 12 interceptions and 235 tackles, with his best seasons coming in 2009 and 2010 when he led the Giants with five picks in each season.

Thomas, a second-round pick in 2008, missed the 2011 and 2012 seasons after suffering two different torn anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee. He first tore his right ACL in college and is believed to be only one of two players to ever play after three such injuries.
