Devin Thomas Refers To Old Team As 'Deadskins'

Devin Thomas was cut by the Washington Redskins last season, then cut by the Carolina Panthers before hooking on to the New York Giants. At the time, he was very upset that he was cut, because the claim Mike Shanahan supposedly made at the time was that he was not dedicated enough to football.

Apparently, he's still a little annoyed at how things went down. ESPN New York asked him about his quest to make the Giants' 53-man roster, and Thomas responded as follows.

"Until I make that [final roster] and they put me back there in the first game against them Deadskins, then I will say it's my job," Thomas said of the team that drafted him in the second round in 2008 before releasing him last season.

The "Deadskins," ey? Don't worry Devin, the Redskins are looking forward to beating the New York Midgets in the NFL's season opener. Boom, roasted!
