Eagles Work Out Guard Donald Thomas

New, comments

According to Adam Caplan of Fox Sports, the Eagles have worked out offensive guard Donald Thomas. The 25 year old Connecticut product has been worked out by seven teams so far this season, but remains a free agent. Originally drafted in the sixth round by the Miami Dolphins in 2008, Thomas has worked mostly as a reserve, but has managed to accrue 13 games worth of starting experience in his two years as a pro. However, after losing the starting left guard position in this year's training camp to Richie Incognito, Thomas quickly fell out of favor in Miami and was released during the final roster cuts.

For those of you who aren't concerned yet about Reggie Wells' future in Philadelphia, now might be the time to start thinking about it. Nothing that the Eagles have done so far - from starting Max Jean-Gilles last week to bringing in potential competition this week - has indicated that the team has an ounce of confidence in the former Cardinal. This isn't to say that Wells will necessarily get the axe if Thomas or another guard is brought in, but you can bet that his chances for playing time would be significantly reduced.
