Jags Sign OT Tra Thomas

According to the Associated Press, OT Tra Thomas signed a 3 year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. This deal fills a key hole, as he will replace the struggling Khalif Barnes, who is a free agent and will probably not return to the team. This will most likely be Thomas's last contract, as the 34 year old doesn't have much gas in his tank. For the NFL Draft, they don't have to address the offensive tackle position in the 1st round. They could go after wide receiver like Jeremy Maclin.

Tra Thomas has spent his whole 11 year career in Philadelphia, until today. He was selected as the 11th overall pick out of Florida State. During his time in Philadelphia, he made 3 Pro Bowls in '01, '02, and '04. I think that Thomas will perform well for the Jaguars for 2 seasons.
