“You know, it is what it is,” Thomas told Jason Reid of the Washington Post. “Obviously, this staff didn’t want to utilize me. For whatever reason, and I still don’t know what it is, they just didn’t look at me as the type of receiver they wanted here. I mean, it was obvious that they didn’t feel I could help them and they didn’t want me.
“I was prepared for this for a long time. When I wasn’t playing and no matter how hard I worked, you know, you could see it didn’t matter, I just said my prayers and started to prepare myself mentally. So I can’t really say it was a surprise, because you could see something was coming with me never playing.”
Thomas did say that he loved the fans in Washington.
“I felt a lot of loyalty to the fans,” he said. “Redskins fans always showed me a lot of love, you know, and I really wanted it to work out. I wanted to be here for a long time and help the Redskins win a lot games. There were a lot of things I wanted to accomplish.
“I thought I’d be able to help this team win, because I know I have the ability to help a team win. I know I can do that. I’m in the right frame of mind. Wherever I go, I’m gonna get in there, work hard and prove what I can do. I have no doubts in my ability. They didn’t feel I could help them, so now I’ll help someone else.”
Someone will surely pick him up. There are a lot of wide-receiver-needy teams that will most certainly kick his tires. Who knows, maybe someone will just bring him in to return kicks.
